Title: My home bar build
Post by: toycruiser23 on June 27, 2012, 10:03:49 PM
Hello. My name is Matt, and I built a bar in my back yard. I have gotten some pretty nice compliments from people in the past, so i figured I would post it up in here and see what you all think. Feel free to ask me any questions and steal ideas. I love this forum and already have 3 little projects I want to build. Here's a little background story. I moved into my house back in July of 2005, and one thing that appealed to me was this 12'x24' air-conditioned, powered, shed, completed with fans and a roll up door. There was a work out station in it, but I got rid of that, and decided to add on 6 feet to make it 18'x24'. I brought over more power, bigger AC unit (15k BTU heat pump), raised the ceiling, complete with Pine T&G and open beams. I put in wood flooring, pool table, bottle shelf that crowns the room, stereo cabinet, 32" TV, and bar. The bar has a foot print of 11'x8' including the back bar. I have a 15cuft keezer and currently 4 taps in a faucet house. I have a sink with hot water, an under-cabinet fridge and freezer, 20lb CO2 tank and 10lb beer gas tank. I recently added more bar stools for a total of 9, and a fold down table.

Here are some pics of the build up:

Very nice!  Instead of going out to the bar, bring the bar home.

Very, very, very cool. I have a pub room in my basement that I'm pretty proud of but you have me beat by a longshot!

Thank you everyone!

I have tried growing hops twice now, but they really don't like the 110 deg, dry summers here in Phoenix, Arizona. I'm not giving up though!

I wish I had room in there for the dart board. For now, it hangs on my back porch. I don't care for holes so much back there.

Whoa, just saw this thread for the first time...unbelievable!  And very tasteful.  Looks like the kind of actual bar I'd like to hang in.

Yeah, I can't believe I didn't see this before.  Very nice build, love the mood of the room, it has a dark and Old West atmosphere.

Very Nice ! 
Love the beam with lighting.  Nice touch !

I hope to buy a house here in Va soon and spread out. And projects like yours show me some of the possibilities.   
Thanks,
Dan
