A Tiny House Movie Theater

by Tyler

I have planned to build a music listening station and movie theater in our cottage since day one. At long last, this dream has come to fruition!

When we were raising the bale walls, I ran speaker wire and HDMI cable through them to prepare. Here are the front-channel speaker nooks:

I haven't gotten around to picking out rear channel speakers, but here is where they will mount:

Recently, we turned our stereo system into a full-blown movie theater with the addition of a projector and screen.

The projector fits perfectly between two floor joists under the loft, right next to the HDMI cable and electrical run.

Out 100" projector screen is mounted to the tie-beam in our living room. Given our space constraints, it literally could not be any bigger!

We now have an unobtrusive movie theater and stereo system that is nothing short of amazing. We inaugurated the setup by showing some friends our house-building montage (so meta). Recently, we've been watching Girls—it's really good. The next season of Game of Thrones is going to be EPIC!
