Because any schmo with money can buy a great theater, but it takes something a bit special to do it yourself.
If you've got a good chunk of change lying around, you're just a few steps away from owning an impressive home theater. Hire a design team, let them work, pay them, and done. It takes a little bit more effort when you're doing it all yourself.
Electronic House has followed up their Home of the Year Awards with a gallery honoring those enthusiasts who chose to do it themselves. But you might not know it from the pictures, some of these theaters look like they were installed by the pros.
Some of the more interesting builds include a home theater built for a quick, zero impact removal, an Irish pub themed theater, a transformed garage and a 'Pirates of the Caribbean' themed theater.
