Project Showcase: Arkansas’ American Dream Home

Project Showcase: Arkansas’ American Dream Home

Go ahead and let out a collective ooh and aah! It’s the kind of home you see in your dreams.

This Arkansas abode was featured on national television for all of its thrilling tech. The 36,000 square foot house has the most extensive Elan g! system ever, according to installer Ryan Heringer of Sound Concepts.

A home this size typically leaves an impression, but it’s especially lasting when the entire place can by operated from an iPhone. That “wow factor” got it air time on Discovery Channel’s “Clash of the Ozarks” and Sportsman Channel’s “Amazing America with Sarah Palin.”

There are nearly 30 TVs from Samsung and Sharp, three surround systems that include a 7.2 home theater with an Epson 3D projector and Dragonfly screen and that’s just the tip of the tech.

Take a look inside …

And that’s just half of it. To get an idea of just how massive this system is, you have to consider how many rooms are in this house.

There are eight bedrooms, a theater, a great room, living room, kitchen, dining room, laundry room, barber shop, billiard room, gym, tanning room, poker room, conference room, putting green, golf simulation room, archery range, kids’ shuffleboard room, rock wall room, deer processing plant, gun storage vault, 12 car garage and separate RV garage.

The Elan system goes beyond just AV in these rooms, it integrates the driveway gate, waterfalls and lighting control for the Playboy Mansion-like pool. There’s also commercial grade Wi-Fi throughout the entire property.

Here’s to hoping.
