    Thank you very much. We've been trying to take our time and make the right decisions instead of how we built the house originally

    This looks like a great project, the deck on the back of the addition is going to be great. Looking forward to seeing the finished project!

    Thanks we're getting there. Pretty much down to ceramic tile, plumbing fixtures, carpet, and a little more finished paint. It's looking a lot better than even these pictures but I'm going to wait till it's done.

    Yeah we are quickly coming up on a year long addition! longer than it took to build the rest of the house. Just got the girls moved into their new rooms last week. We just have to get the floor done in the garage. The glass in for the cigar room and the cabinets in for the closet and some trim and we are done! I can't wait to share it with everyone.

    To answer your question Neil there are currently 14 speakers in the house and we added an additional 8. So 22 when all said and done.

    Are you using 12 channel amps to power all of them with dual zone receiver?

    Honestly I have no idea. It's through guardians onicon system. I have one receiver that plugs into the wall and plays over the whole house or each room has local source inputs to plug in an iPhone or other music device. Speakers are klipsch. I'm not an audio guru sorry to dissapoint

    What was the addition in square feet? Did you select one company as GC and run everything through them. i would love to do this at my home but so ignorant to the process

    I'll give you the longer response: I'm actually a general contractor but I do mostly interior build outs of retail stores nationally and internationally. When we first built the house I had a GC do the foundation and all the exterior shell work. I did all the mechanicals and finishes inside. It was a lot less pleasant and cost effective than I anticipated, but heck I was 26 so what did I know. Well this time I used a GC that did my buddies house and does a lot of custom work in the area. He has been really helpful in the process as a lot of this was made up on the fly. He is also doing all the interior work. Only complaint is that it has been way too slow for the amount of work that has been done and we only had a budget in mind, everything else has been Time and material which is super nerve wracking.

    To answer your first question the entire addition is a little over 2,000 sq.ft. including the garage space.
