Default Tap room, your opinion?

So this is the idea we (my sis and i)have for the downstairs family room. Right now it's my mother bedroom but that will probably be changing soon. Just wanted your opinion on it, its not proportionate at all but it's a pretty good size space. It's will be opening out to an outdoor stone oven with some nice furniture with it. Anything you think doesn't work or will work better please post. (but the fireplace is already there so it wont move) thanks.

Yeah, move the fireplace. I mean geez, what are you thinking!

Seriously, looks great. My only question would be on the tap lines. Where are you keeping the kegs cool and how would the lines be routed and also cooled?

I know a lot of people on this forum put their taps on the bar so that the lines run directly below to their keezer.

Good luck with the build.

I'd move the dartboard to the left wall where one of the chess pieces is. To keep the flow of traffic from possibly disrupting the dart game or having someone stumble in one of those doors and get a dart in the head. Other than that looks good to me and wish I had that kind of space.

One of the most important parts. Where's the TV go?

good point on the dart board, and i *ahem* wasn't thinking of a tv. Wanted it to be more of a social thing. (people around here glue to a tv and don't talk to one another) The kegs are (planned) to go under the taps, i just didnt draw it in.

What kind of fireplace is it? Reason I ask is if its not gas you might want to rethink the bar stools in front of it, would be hot sitting in front of a wood stove, or open pit fire place.

More power to you with no tv. Sometimes I wish I could do the same more interaction, less staring at the wall . But I'm a sports junkie so it could never fly. Looks like a sweet setup though.

Depends how you want it. But maybe have the bar jut out of the side wall instead to give you some more floor space? Just food for thought.

It's a gas oven in the corner, we own one it's just going to be installed thats all. As for the bar setup, the counter is that was because there's a support beam for the house in the middle of the room. It utalizes the beam to our benift.

On the left wall, blow it out and put one of these in:

I actually really like that! (cant have the view but hey...) That wall is currently just a window, an ugly and not energy effecient window.
