This Family Transformed Their Home Into A Star Wars Lovers’ Paradise

When it comes to sci-fi, there are all sorts of fan clubs. There’s plenty of costumes, role playing, and giant Comicon conventions. Each genre has members that live, eat, breathe (probably some other activities I don’t want to mention) around their obsession. But on occasion, you get some fans who create a real marvel with their home. And that’s what you’re about to see now. Behold, the home that transformed into a Star Wars style starship…

That's quite a house to begin with!
Someone REALLY likes Star Wars. I like Star Wars too, but this takes it to a whole new level.
Behind these doors is the home’s main feature: a Death Star theater.
The hallway makes me wonder if some fans are actually trying to show up George Lucas.
The detail is amazing and intricate. I bet it must feel like you’re flying through space while watching a movie. It belongs to Vic Wertz and Lisa Stevens, who used to run the Official Star Wars Fan Club. They went so far as to commission Doug Chiang, a designer who worked on Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace and Episode II: Attack of the Clones, to help design the theater.
Here’s what the initial concept looked like. They definitely nailed it.
The surround sound is probably so good that you have to check for cracks in the drywall after a lightsaber battle. (The films are projected from a Runco VX5C 3-Chip DLP Projector installed in the back of the room.)
See the guy on the left? That’s either a replica of the frozen Han Solo, or the last guy that got too sucked into the scene. Told you the sound was good.
With this bounty hunter keeping an eye on things, good luck getting in without an invite.
I know a lot of Star Wars fanatics. But few are as imaginative with their obsession as this couple. Their costume parties must be a sight to behold.
