Customer project 108 - Garage conversion.


When SciFi movie enthusiast Steve Cockburn decided it was time to create a dedicated home cinema room he was more than up for the technical challenges of the build, but decided that he'd come to the experts for the star ceiling which was part of his vision. He lives close enough to Starscape to drive up and have a look at our Infinity demonstration area, and having seen it, decided that Infinity was the way to go.

Since the room is not huge, a coffered array of 6 panels in a 3 x 2 metre coffered ceiling would fit nicely, and Steve opted to use the magnetic mounting package.

Start of the build


Steve started by building a wall across the front of one half of the double garage..

Wall finished

The wall finished and ready for the window. You can see that the garage door is still in place at
this point as a temporary security measure.


Blocks ready to devide the space

Blocks inside ready to divide the garage to create two distinct rooms..

Star ceiling and TV screen

“Oh! They've encased him in Carbonite. He should be quite well protected.
If he survived the freezing process, that is.”
Star Wars fans may also recognise the Bobba Fett
helmet feature on the wall next to poor Han Solo.

This photo, sent by Steve more recently, shows the completed room with seats and more sci-fi decor.
We're very envious!


Looking the other way. Another carbonite panel, we think this is ...
