    I´m late to the party, but... on the theatre in the basement: Have a professional installer look at it _OR_ do the dampening first, fill it with furniture, and then experiment on your own with the tech. That will make sure that it sounds good to your ears, not the golden-ears-rule-of-law ;) The order I suggest, and followed for a couple installations as a hobbyist makes sure you do not have to change the interior too much and have discussions with the family. Think of it like this: In a movie theatre there is also no choice on where the seats and screen are, so you have to adapt the tech to these two ;)

    You should contact Mike Holmes to do a cross-over tv / youtube video home improvement project with this new house. You are both in Canada, he can do all the home improvement demo and construction, his HVAC guys can help solve your heat/ac automation problems and he would get a big laugh out of seeing some of your "handy-work" techniques. Plus he could get an episode or two for his TV show(s) and you could get a series of you tube videos. Seriously, contact him and I bet he would get a charge out of working with you, plus they might work a deal with sponsors supplying materials saving everybody money.

    for the thermostats look for the homematic Fußbodenheizungsaktor. it s an actuator for floor heating systems. you need the smart valves and it can be controlled from home assistant. they also have smart thermostats that are battery run (you can easily run them from a power supply) and then again though home assistant you can read them. those Germans make cool stuff and reasonably priced for Europe

    You can control your boiler with moeshouse zigbee thermostat. For water heating you can use a 0/1 smart zigbee valves with home assistant support or wired valves with smart relays. In each zone you can use zigbee temperature sensors by Aqara and control your heating with home assistant. But if you want control AC, you might be able to integrate google nest thermostat as an remote control of your climate. But all automations will be in home assidtant or node red. And don’t forget about ventilation 😎 if you need help, i can review your system for more helpful assistance.

    Home Theater - The number one best thing you can do for an outstanding home theater experience, is sound isolation (both for viewers and people in the rest of the house). If you put all that effort into surround speakers and high quality audio, you want to be able to hear it! Sound isolation arguably will give you a better audio experience than upgrading speakers. Consider including the following options: FRAMING: Walls - decoupling makes a HUGE difference in transmission of bass sounds to other rooms/floors. bass vibrates right through framing if you don't decouple the room. 2 approaches: resilient channels - some decoupling of sound, significant reduction in bass transmission, with minor loss of space/height double walls - you lose about a foot of space in the room, but building double-walled framing does an outstanding job stopping Bass transmission. Ceiling - floating joists/resilient clips - also isolating bass transmission to the rest of the house, and sounds of footsteps coming in. Drywall - 2 layers of drywall (preferably different thicknesses) or one plywood and one drywall (easy screwing), with "Green Glue" between them to add effective mass absorbption. This is especially important for the ceiling, which is harder to isolate than walls Insulation - insulation is helpful, but only for mid-range sound frequency absorption. generally any R-11 insulation is fine, as the above measures for decoupling and mass will have more effect than rocksul insulation over regular insulation. don't hard pack it in the wall either. door - heavy solid-core door with gaskets, sweeps and transition strip window - build a "plug" to acoustically isolate outside sounds from coming in acoustic caulking - between floor and walls, walls and ceiling, around electrical boxes to reduce transmission through holes around electrical boxes First Reflections of audio - typically overlooked in amateur installations, planning the actual dimensions of the room and where to put sound deadening materials on the walls and other accoustic planning, can result in ideal surround experience or sounds bouncing around the room in a way you don't want.

    Maybe a bit late, but check out Honeywell’s evohome line. From what I’m reading, you’d need a ATP921R3100 base unit, 3 x BDR91 units (they can each control 4 zones), and 10 DTS92 thermostats. The BDR91 units could control your 24VAC voltage to your existing zone valves, negating the need to replace your zone valves.

    I mean you could remove the old thermostat and run new four strand thermostat wire in the same routes as the old ones. Just tie or tape the new wire to the end of the old one and fish it down or up (depending on where your unit is) and buy your smart thermostat, wire the base plate up and make sure the products are communicating properly. Once you've verified that you can sync to your choice of device to control.

    On a mansion, this is less true: but you need to insulate and seal like crazy. A whole house heat pump could be more efficient than individual room minisplits (which are the most efficient for energy consumed to cold air output). The reason is that the whole house can be 'thermal mass' and lock in the temperature. Especially with a variable speed system, as long as the temperature is close, it doesn't need to work that hard. But in 'catch-up' mode it's pulling a lot of energy. Matt Reisinger would be a great channel for you to connect with.

So much cheaper and you can get them in one or 2 continues runs and you dont hit your knees when you roll around with your chair. Also: PVC or cast floor, don't know about the options available in the region, but its ideal with kids, robot vacuum cleaners and rolling gaming chairs.

    For the LAN cave consider dividers so the individual gamers cannot see each others screen. Ideally ones that can be removed to open up the room but also placed to prevent the inevitable cheating that comes with being able to look at the other player's screen.

    Linus should focus more on environmental concerns while using technology. He can install solar panels in his new house to set off the carbon footprint and focus towards a carbon neutral lifestyle, if not carbon negative because being a tech enthusiast a lot of energy is used in powering the electronics. He should use the in-floor heating and air conditioning using green energy. This will not only help the environment today but also set an example in the whole ISboths community Linus Tech Tips being a major channel with several sister channels. He can do the whole thing DIY which keeps up with his open source motto and may take help of Brian, the Electrician. A video series on this may eventually lead to net zero on very less cost on Linus' part and be a great motivation towards green technology. Lets not forget that Linus brought the new house for his kids and he should also ensure that they have a safe and healthy future. "With great power comes great responsibility" ~ Peter Parker
