  1. The space was divided into a large entertainment area and a home gym.13782 Mary Lou Dr 12
  2. The kids have their own space for playing multiplayer video games. It’s complete with two TV screens and cabinets for storage of consoles and games.
  3. The barn doors that separate the living area from the exercise room feature innovative stops for soft-opening and soft-closing functionality.
  4. Built-in shelves and cabinets display the homeowners’ collection of sports memorabilia; the glass barn doors below the TV are a fun tie-in to the full-size doors in the room.
  5. Custom wood planks behind the television were hand distressed on-site.
