So I've torn a 6x4 foot hole in a wall (non load wall), installed a header and done all the support work with proper materials exceeding code. That's all done. Creating a nice hole inside two build in cabinets on either side of the wall.
At the very bottom of this I will be building a small 20x42" sealed box with build in DC fans, wireless thermometer, cable management etc. It will hold a receiver, TiVo, PS3 etc.
