The bedroom above the family room, originally earmarked as a children’s bedroom with built-in bunks, now serves as a luxurious guest bedroom with a breathtaking view of the Provo River. A children’s slumber-party space has been incorporated in the family room.
The home’s eight solar panels will produce, on average, 3,492,320 watts of power per year. An inverter converts DC electricity to AC electricity that is fed to the electric meter. When energy use is low, the excess electricity produced by the system will turn back the homeowner’s meter and result in an energy bill credit. When energy consumption is high and solar production is low, the homeowner will buy power from the electric company.
A whole-house audio system pipes music into HGTV Dream Home’s most important spaces. A distribution module, located in the garage, receives input from up to four audio sources (iPhone, iPod, etc.). Keypad volume control modules located in 16 of the home’s rooms control and amplify sound. Local source input modules allow the homeowner to override garage audio sources and customize music in each space. Wall- and ceiling-mounted speakers, located both indoors and out, create a surround-sound experience.
The home’s center point is designed to resemble an old stone structure, lived in and loved by generations of family members.
Bedroom placement takes into consideration the needs of both the guests and the homeowners.
