Thanks Ted! Just need to get the slate tile sealed and the finish on the log bar stools, but I'm having a b*tch of a time finding the time to get it done. Thankfully, fall is here and lawn mowing and landscape maintenance is winding down. I mow almost 2 acres and have a sprinkler system, so I have to mow, edge, & trim about every 5 days.....huge time committment. Once that crap winds down, I'll have about 5 extra hours per week to work on finishing up the odds and end in the basement. This winter I plan on building an all electric brewhouse in the basement as well. Can't wait! Anytime your traveling over to Michigan to visit family, your welcome to drink as much beer as you can at my place.

I know.....this thread has been dead for a while, but I have had a hard time getting the rest of this project done. I have been juggling 50 different things with this basement build, but I'm happy to say the project is nearing completion. My wife and I have been putting off the grouting of the slate for too long and decided this past weekend to tackle the dreaded project. I got out of work early today and was able to get the final coat of stone sealer over the entire thing. Just a few things left to do. I need to get a couple of coats of poly on the cedar log bar stools and wipe down the walls that have gotten a little dusty. I need to install the shelving in the cabinetry behind the bar as well. This weekend I'll roll the keezer into it's final resting spot and the fridge will be next to it. I'm still trying to talk my wife into letting me cover the fridge doors and right side with knotty pine paneling, because it's white and sticks out like a sore thumb. Here's some pics of the slate grouted and sealed.

Thanks EdWort....it means alot coming from a legend like yourself. Take a peek at my keezer thread and you will see my taps. I have a 4 tap keezer that will sit in the cubby space to the left of the countertop behind the bar. I'll snap a few final pics this weekend and post them.

Here are a few more pics that I was going to post. The first pic is the pantry off of the bar that my wife wanted for extra storage of canned goods, etc. My wife is a huge fan of Costco, so she buys a ton of stuff in bulk. Our walk in pantry in our kitchen is stuffed full, so I promised her another walk in pantry. The door to the left leads into the unfinished side of my basement where my brewing room will be built. You can see some knotty pine in the distance with an exterior door in the pic. That is my wine and beer cold storage room that I built a while back. It houses 180 bottles of wine, has shelving to accommodate six packs of craft beer, mini-kegs of craft beer, 22oz. bottles of craft beer, and cases can sit on the floor under the shelving. I also store my kegs in waiting in that room. To the left of that room will be an entire room devoted to the brewery. There are also a couple of other pics. of the bar area and one pic of my "fake" elecric fireplace below the cedar log mantle. As you can see, I still have to do a little shopping for a TV above the fireplace. Anyways......I'll post some final pics soon and then will start my rustic brewing room thread shortly!
