this is such a waste of money!
he said, because he can't afford it
He just said that. He CAN afford it. Just look at the house itself, It ain't cheap. Have you ever embarked on a remodel project? That isn't cheap
either, especially if you tackle a bathroom of any kind, fancy or not. The TV system is normal high end at $20K. In fact, you could make a case that
it is mid-range.
Hard to tell what it was like originally, but if this were a contractor's "unfinished basement" in this fairly new $500-600K house, a normal
remodeling job (carpets, pool table, wet bar, etc) and that TV system would have been about $35K. So the Elder Scrolls value-added is a lot less than
the total price, which has been conveniently inflated to make you think he spent $50K on just the Elder Scrolls part of it.
The guy at least had a vision to do something out of the ordinary rather than accept a cookie-cutter and boring solution. And the wife is on board. It
doesn't get any better than that. Personally I don't get off on Middle Ages themes, but it would have cost a whole lot more to turn that basement into
a suite on Carrick Station.*
