About the Media Room:

An area of the home that was originally occupied by a dangerously steep ship ladder-style staircase, two bedrooms and a hallway now accommodates a media room that functions as a gathering space and makeshift bedroom for overnight guests, thanks to cleverly installed Murphy beds. "This year our inspiration came from the location of the cabin. Oceanfront property demands some coastal influences, don't you think?" says Mega Dens host Anitra Mecadon. "We had two goals: one, to use as much of the original house as possible in our builds and two, to bring the outside in."
