My name is Torgeir Sunnarvik, and comes from Florø, Norway's westernmost city.
On a daily basis, I work as a project manager in the construction company
Florø Entreprenør AS , where I am also one of the owners.
Has been a project manager for the last 15 years in various companies,
before I took the step into the owner side.
Which so far has been positive in many ways.
In private, I live with Vibeke, and father of Teodor who is now 9 months old when this is being written. Also has the privilege of having a very special cat with the name Purre on loan.
That is, we got him from animal protection almost 6 years ago.
Otherwise, the day goes by quickly when you have a lot of iron in the fire.
Right now, house building is responsible for most of the leisure activity.
We have bought a Blinkhus of the type Vang through the construction company Gravdal.
There I am responsible for everything that has to do with concrete, chipping and sanding of pipes, masonry, etc.
Fortunately, I get a lot of help from my father when my time is not enough.
Started in the early autumn of 2011 and cleared the plot of forest, and now a little over 1 year later the house is soon ready to move into.
That's when we get to my big hobby, home theater !!
Apart from guitar playing, comics, websites, etc., home theater is my great passion.
Has had some form of home theater for the past 15 years in various sizes.
The first attempts were with a simple widescreen TV of the type crt, connected to a laser disc, with a stereo amplifier and two floor-standing speakers.
Now in recent years I have had a dedicated home theater in the attic of a vertically divided house.
This has been a perfectly decent solution with many good movie moments.
There I drove Denon, together with B&W on the sound side. And a Barco data 801 that showcases with the Pioneer blu-ray player.
But now it's time for an update on that front.
Over the next year, ie 2013, I will build a new home theater in our new house.
This comes in the basement, where it is set aside about 22m2 for the purpose.
The room is now plastered without any paint or anything on the walls.
Here I will use a room in the room solution, where the walls, floor and ceiling of the home theater itself are completely separated from the rest of the house.
I will try to document this process as best I can in the future. That's why I started Filmhulen.com to be able to blog about the progress of both the house and the home cinema.
If I have nothing to write about when I finish, I can start watching some movies 😉
Have a hope to be able to create a blog that will inspire and give tips on both house building and home theater, with most focus on the latest.
