Today I started clearing out the side of my house. The wall straight back is the garage, the tool shed is on the left and the living room is too the right. My goal over the next year or so is to build a room addition in this big waste of space.
The room size will be roughly 9x21x10. Where the current living room window is will become the doorway. My tool shed will be demoed in the next several months with all the tools moving to the garage. Once the room is complete the current dedicated HT room in the garage will be demoed giving me back my 2-car garage.
I plan to use all my gear, speakers and the two dedicated 20-amp lines that power the current HT room for the new room. The new room will also serve as the media center for computers and the TV. I will install a pull down screen so I can use my FP for movies. This will free up our TV / living room / dining room that we have now for just a dining room and lounge area.
This will add roughly 200sf to my house and it will be a 100% DIY project.
