When we moved into this house there was one major thing I couldn't stand... the gigantic hole in the wall! Since the only cable outlet was inside of this hole I assume the builder thought it would be a good media solution... I tried a lot of different ways to use this hole and never found any to make it work to my liking. So, after 4 years of staring at the ugliest focal point in the main room of our house, we finally hired a contractor to drywall over the hole! BEST. DECISION. EVER! We actually have a normal looking fireplace now and I couldn't be happier! It could possible be my favorite thing we have done to the house.
