It Took Almost 2 Years To Build This Dream Home Theater In His Basement…

Most men have man caves, but not all have this ultimate basement!  After years of dreaming, this man was determined to carry out his master plan for the ultimate basement. Here’s what the basement looked like before he started:

He began by removing the ceiling tiles, the closet front, and its shelves.

Another closet space was removed and expanded to make room for an A/V cabinet.

Lights were installed in the ceiling, and sheet rock was placed all around.
