So i finally got it (mostly) done. (Is a project like this ever really “done”?)
The basement casino is open for business.
When we moved into the house, there was nothing down there. Just a big open box with the concrete foundation walls on all sides. Staircase coming down in the middle, furnace & water heater on one side, laundry washer & dryer on the other.
This last spring, I, with the help of my dear ol’ pop, put up drywall walls to create some rooms. Walled off a furnace room, and also a laundry room.
These photos were taken Sept 25, 2006.
I posted those, so you can see what has happened in a very short time span, considering it’s only been one mere mortal working on it.
So, without any further ado, chadd’s new basement casino:
New Bottle shelves (added Nov 22 2006)
Beer Tap (added july 2007)
Home Theater PC (added march 2008)
There’s still a lot to do. Need more art on the walls, need to add kegerator behind the bar [update: wall beer tap added], add a sink behind the bar, add a couple bookshelves, trim out the drywall, start/finish the downstairs bathroom in the laundry room. Should keep me occupied for a while.
In the meantime, it’s done enough to be usable, my own little piece of Vegas in my basement. And, after the first party we had down there last week, I think it will work out well. But, i think i might have to initiate taking a rake from the poker table, or else i’m going to have to send back that volcano for the front yard and the flamingos for the back.
