CAD Design Services
We offer full in-house CAD design services with over 20 years of experience in the design and construction of custom home cinemas. Below is an example of a basic set of drawings for a custom home cinema project.
To begin the design process its best if we can obtain the following information:

- Any Pictures of the space that may be available
- Any preferences in a/v equipment and seating, especially how many people anticipated will use the theater
