Franschhoek Home Cinema Build

We have just completed this Franschhoek Home Cinema build, this is a daily breakdown of the work completed on this stunning home cinema project.

We were contacted by our good friends at Sphere Custom design and asked if we could assist them with this Franschhoek home cinema build. This home cinema which is a massive 12m long by 8m deep by 4m high has to be completed before Christmas. As we are always up for a challenge and happy to help our colleagues at Sphere Custom Design wherever possible, we agreed to assist.
The project timeline was very short with access to our home cinema room only being given to us on the 2nd of December, we had less than 21 days to complete this build and make sure it is working perfectly before Christmas.

The details below are just a short summary of the work we completed each day.

Franschhoek Cinema Build: Day 15 – Home Cinema Columns build & Installation

On the schedule this morning is completing the building of the Home Cinema Columns and then installing them.

This is a lengthy process which requires everyone to work on the columns together. The assembly process takes 4 people at a time to ensure that they are joined together correctly. Then 4 people to install each column into its correct place.

Franschhoek Cinema Build: Day 7: Home Cinema Staging

In any cinema you need somewhere to sit, this cinema is no different. With a three tier Home Cinema Staging from entrance down to floor level.

Work starts on the Home Cinema Staging as a standard decking construction. Although not much weight will be placed on top of these different tiers, they need have a solid construction to ensure that they don’t rattle or shake apart while our clients are watching an earth shaking scene in their favourite action movie.
