basement/bar project

Recommended Posts

I finally started working to remodel the vintage '70s basement we had in our house since we bought the house 3 years ago. I'm putting in a wet bar that has a soffit with 3 recessed lights above it. We have a pool table which will be set up about 8 ft. out from the bar and past there we'll have a couch and HDtv. There will eventually be a 28" LCDtv in the left corner behind the bar.

I don't have pics of what it looked like before I gutted it, but that dark paneling was there which we're going to prime and paint a lighter color and they had dark blue old carpet down there.

Gutted, before I started to frame it out:



There were two sliding doors here that led to the laundry area. I took those out and put in this wall with a pocket door to close the room off.





Start of the base. The bar is 9 ft. straight out, then L's 60" to the left. It extends out from a false wall I framed to hide the plumbing and electrical line. It will have a top that matches the bar top to make a ledge to rest drinks on.







This is the finished upright frame. You can see the soffit with the lights on above it.

I wish my basement was inviting enough to do something like that.

Unfortinatly. My basement is the room that I dread going into. At one time it was decent, but it has that rare basement musty funk smell. We had insulated the walls and wrapped the insulation in fabric (for sound purposes) when I had a theatre down there, but have since pulled the fabric down, so there is a huge wall of exposed insulation. I hate my basement.

You do realize this takes time away from golf.

Seriously, great project, don't forget to post some pic when you're done.

I'm going to be doing some finishing of our basement in our DE house. It's a walk out with big windows and a sliding door so it will be a nice area when done. I'm going to use an acid stain on the concrete floor this week. I wanted something that was not too formal and I'm cheap so this fit the bill at about $0.65 a square foot for 1000sf.

You're lucky, you don't need a permit, I have to go own up to the gubmint.

thanks everyone- actually, golf is taking away from me working on this but my plan all along was to just take my time with it and pay for things slowly. Aug 1st has been my deadline all along- just in time to throw a "stock the bar party" and then get ready for Buckeye football Saturday's and Browns football Sundays.

make sure you put up a big U of M sign behind the bar...LOL

Nope, the door mat is U of M. We like to wipe our feet on it, much like how Jim Tressel wipes his feet all over that program...

GO BUCKS!!

    • As per the specs on XR irons, the stock shaft lengths are: 6i = 37.875" PW = 35.75" AW = 35.50" SW = 35.25" So, your 6I + 1" now is 38.875" long. If you have already extended these two wedges 1" also, then you would extend their shaft length by 2". If you have not already extended your wedges, you would be increasing the shaft length by 3". A couple of things to consider: Shaft length + loft helps determine how far a given golf club will launch the ball. If you make the wedge shafts 2 to 3 inches longer, you likely will get yardage compression. You might get a PW that flies longer than your 9i. Safety factors: The clubsmiths at GolfWorks do not recommend extending non-putter shafts beyond 1". You run the risk of creating shear points, with club possibly coming apart. If you like longer shafts in the short clubs, try the single-length irons. 
    • I will be posting some next week sometime. I have been in the Fitness business for 20 years. These will include 3 levels for beginners, intermediate and Advanced so you can work your way up. I will also include some easy warm up drills. watch for my posts  "Ten minutes to better golf "  check out my ten minutes to pain free golf in the meantime
    • I hear you. Having the playoffs is definitely better than not, hopefully the Labor Day finish and some slight format tweaks down the road can help. 
    • I as blown away this morning when I saw the new Cleveland woods and irons in Golf Digest. At the 2015 St. Louis Golf Expo, the regional Cleveland/Srixon rep had told me that Cleveland was going to focus on wedges and recreational clubs, while Srixon would focus on clubs for competition golfers. I noted, however, that the past 18 months the Cleveland site only talked about wedges and putters. So, it was good to see the GD ad on the new Cleveland Launcher woods and irons. Circa 2009, the Cleveland CG16 irons lost out to the Callaway X20 irons when I was redoing my bag. And,  I played a mix of CG14 wedges until last summer. Good to see Cleveland rebounding beyond wedges and putters.  Several golf club manufacturers have used variations on CB in the designations of their cavity-back iron models. I doubt such a suit would go anywhere; it would be like trying to copyright the terms grooves and dimples.
    • Yup.  I'm happily in the "I will not be getting a Scotty" club.
