Looks like a trash compactor.

Perlick faucets. The counter is black emerald pearl granite 18x26 tile and the backsplash is lightly tinted clear glass tile. I've been running soda water at 35 psi on the right and beer at 10 psi on the left.
Very Nice bar BrewThunda. You do all the work yourself? Very Clean.

That thing next to the sink is an icemaker! Makes up to 50 lbs of ice a day. It's a trip - it actually makes rectangular sheets of ice, then slides it on to a heated grid . . and ice cubes fall out the bottom.

We hired electricians and drywallers. My father in law did a ton of the work himself. He's a carpet and tile guy by trade and also did general carpentry and framing and stuff. I carried stuff, painted, dug out an easement window, did some wiring and wrote a lot of checks.

I'll go ahead and post mine. Figures I gotta follow one like Brew Thunders. It's not complete but as complete as it will be for tonight public revealing for new years.
One more perlick coming Monday the 5th via UPS and 1 to go. Then finish trim work, redo trim work on tap box to match trim on lid. Decided i liked the color scheme after tap box was all mounted and stained. Then build a skirt for the roller base.
Then order Drip tray and trim around that.
It is capable of holding 4 cornies and co2 inside. plus beer I plan on storing. The lid is heavy but not to the point where it's a big deal to load unload cornies as they float. Used a Love controller for temp mounted in place of the old one.
Here goes. Wow, I'm finally posting in this thread, what a day! Anyways, enough of my celebration, here are pics. The only part that really matters to this thread.

The two blue holes are for the other tap handles. Blue is just the foam showing through

I really like how you placed the love controller in the freezer, looks very professional. Mine just sits on the floor next to the freezer I need to emulate what you did.

Thanks. Always good to hear compliments. I just used a razor knife to cut out the size square, then adhesive to hold it in place. The bracket for the love wouldn't squeese tight enough hence the adhesive. The probe length was perfect length to go from there, behind the fridge and up into the color. although it only sticks about a foot or so down into the fridge. Doesn't seem to a problem so far. ran t kegs through with a picnick tap previously. we'll see how it goes with beer on this setup. Currently holding a modified Apfelwein for New Years Eve tonight.

Nice work, Brad. I love the personalized tapper. Did you do that or did someone make it for you?

Smart choice on the perlick faucet as well.

Those plastic brackets suck. Nice work.

That is awesome. Did you design the logo or did someone else?
