This was a fun project and I’d like to do more of these installations. The wall was bumped out about 6″ to accommodate an electric fireplace and a ultra flat screen TV.
New electric was ran for the fireplace so that it would be on it’s own circuit. These types of heating units can draw a lot of amps and sharing the line with other devices is to be avoided.
The TV being ultra flat has it’s components in a separate box that sits on a shelf that was created within the wall behind the TV.
There is room below the TV for a hearth and above the TV for a mantle is desired.
