Anyone build a bar/man cave in a true basement?
 
With my expanding family (3 kids), my man cave is being taken over as the playroom/den, etc. We have a full sized basement which we use for storage/laundry, etc. It has cement floors, and very few windows and low ceilings. Was thinking of turning one corner of it into a man/cave/taproom. Anyone else done this? Dont' want to do major renos, but would like it reasonably comfortable.

This is what I've been working on. Good luck!

There's a BUNCH of mancave threads here... just do a search for "mancave".

I realize that, and have done that. Problem is they aren't generally in a true basement.

Check this one out.. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f85/hidd...33/index5.html

Concrete floor and walls... some good ideas.

They were all "true" basements at one point. If you want minimal work, Throw a large rug down, some furniture, a TV and build a simple bar.

Thanks all, I think I'm going to look at something like this to lay some floor on.

The issue is, it is one giant room, and I won't be putting up any walls. I was thinking of sectioning off one part for a keezer/bar build with a tv, etc.

Curtains. But a wall is really easy to build.

My house was built in 1886, with all the rain we've had around here I'd need one of those floating Chaise lounges to sit down there. Sump pumps have been running overtime.
