High End Custom Bar Room & Basement (Man Cave)
Basements can be some of the most interesting projects that we do. This project was one of them. This basement had some existing ham and egg walls installed by the previous home owner. As we walked through the basement the homeowner started to tell us some of the things that he was looking to do. We realized this wasn’t a run of the mill basement that he was looking to achieve. His objective was to create a living room, bar area, bathroom, small workout room, and storage room. We utilized the main girder in the house as a wall, and the supporting columns as well. Styrofoam insulation was installed on the exterior wall, and metal studs were used to frame the walls, and soffits. We framed a soffit around the trunk lines running in the basement. Recessed lighting was installed in the whole basement. After drywalling the whole basement it was time to start installing finishes. In the living room we installed an electric fireplace inside a stone wall, with crown on the ceiling and carpet on the floors. We installed eyeball lights above the stone wall to really give it a nice effect. We added accent stone columns on the side of double french doors leading into the bar area to catch the stone wall in the living room and the stone on the bar area. In the bar area we installed a neutral laminate floor, a huge 6×8 bar with a granite top and stone exterior. We created LED shelving behind the bar, which is controlled by a remote. The lighting can change colors, fade, or strobe. We installed 4 pendant lights above the bar. Under the bar there is a sink installed, a kegerator, and a refrigerator. To the side of the bar there was a pool table (with a USC cloth), and a pool stick shelf installed with a granite shelf off to the side for drinks. Crown was installed on the ceiling of the bar area as well. In between the bar area, and living room we put in a half bath, and off of the bar area we added a small workout room for the home owners as well. Putting it lightly the client, now personal friends as well, was extremely pleased with the process, craftsmanship, and professionalism.
