Default My basement - a work in progress

Since I love seeing everyone else show off their work, I thought I'd share mine.

I finished framing and rough drywall. Here are a few shots.

Looking out to the patio. Future bar area on the left and a shelf and a couple stools in that narrow hall. Kind of an odd spot, but didn't want to lose the window and had to box in the furnace.



A view from the bar area to where the big TV is going to go. Hopefully there will be a pool table in between. I painted the ceiling black and am using track lighting. I like the way it turned out, but may need to add additional lights.

The cat is there too - Sammy



From the TV area to where I hope to put a poker table. You can see my utility area too.

Hall to the stairs, the bathroom and my brew closet and what will eventually be the brewery.



Shower in the bathroom



The vanity and my tile work

Current brewing closet. Hoping to abandon this soon and turn it into bulk supplies. I'm also toying with the idea of putting a chest freezer in here and running the taps through the wall



Future brewery. Already have my sink, but it's full of crap because of basement work.



Fridge is waiting for it's new home and wanting me to get busy. Looks like it needs to be cleaned too.

I love the juxtaposition; he's got both a $10 Ale Pale on the floor, and a stainless steel conical!

Yea, thats pretty awesome. One of these days I will no longer rent the town house that I live in now, and have a basement of my own to turn into a brewpub. Or maybe ill just keep living in my townhouse, get rich, and open a for real brew pub!!!! I like the second idea!!!!
