Default Incognito bar build. The B'armoire.

Time to take it off the drawing board, and into reality.... 4 kegs on tap, room for liquor, wine, glassware, Sketchup tested, SWMBO approved.









Now I just need to build it. (and get some more kegs.)

Haha, that's great. IS the bottom part going to be refrigerated? How is that going to work?

yeah, the bottom will be cooled with components from a kegerator that is rusted out, but cools like a champ. The front is just open on the pics for illustrative purposes. It will have a removable panel that holds the insulation in place.

Here's a update. I want to maximize usable countertop space in the middle, so I'm moving the faucets to the sides, at an angle.




Oh yeah, I love a good reciprocating saw. You can open your fridge from the back.

Faucet boxes( kinda like a coffin) are framed up, and got the tiles cut for counter tops. Marble tiles on clearance @ Lowe's for $2.68 ea. Also got the kegerator cooling components mounted.

And yes, I have no garage or basement, so I do all my constructing in our carport, using the bed of my truck as a work bench.

Kegerator is insulated and sealed with FRP panel and silicone caulk. Drilled holes in the tile for the shanks, and found a tap handle for the Thunderstruck Pumpkin Ale.
