This is the finished product. Craig says it's his favorite place to be on a Friday night, watching the latest 4K movie release, sipping on a Japanese whisky, engulfed in Dolby Atmos surround sound.

The home theater features Dolby Atmos 5.1.4, a 120-inch screen and a very bright 4K HDR capable Epson 5040 UB projector.

"We found two Italian wall sconces that direct light up and down to highlight the screen wall and give the theater an old cinema look," Craig says. "The wall is painted with the original dark Ferrari red, for richness and to pay homage to the motorsports history."
