It’s not the White House, but it might be better.

Boca Theater & Automation recently completed a massive fully integrated installation at a 12,000-square-foot “White House” (you will see why it has that name when you check out the photo gallery).

The job, which was a finalist in the Lutron Excellence Awards, includes 19 separate work orders with the centerpieces of the installation being a custom lift that rises from the floor of the master bedroom to reveal a flat panel TV, a 103-inch Runco flat panel in the living room displaying digital art, a dedicated home theater, a master bath with his and hers touchpanels, an office with electronic glass, an outdoor entertainment area, and a custom TV lift in the kitchen.

“This cutting-edge home is defined by its avant-garde style and attention to detail,” says Brad Bergoine of Boca Theater & Automation. The 19 work orders include:
