cassandra and spookyduderino, I abandoned TV several years ago since I can use my laptop to watch XC skiing and biathlon, the only things I really want to see. Wondering whether a built-in TV is a fixture if the house is sold? Whether it is or not, if the purchaser doesn't want a TV there, is getting rid of the hole in the wall and wiring going to be difficult?

Well I use my very large laptop... ancient but still in perfect working order... laptop as well Deborah. Many films and TV progs can be watched via YouTube if necessary though not, of course, the recent or live ones. Mine has a DVD slot so I can watch films but crowding round a 17.5" screen ain't great when folk come round!

I particularly like the CAVE design. The TV is offset not centralised as in most designs that you see in glossy mags, which works particularly well with the fireplace. Both are joined with the long shelf beneath (dark to connect the TV) and the sequence of oblongs is taken up by the picture to the right. While the TV is hung between 2/3 : 1/3 of 'wall' space, the picture is opposite, being hung 1/3 : 2/3 from the ceiling, which I find rather pleasing!
