Well I'm going to try and do this my self. The wife and I don't have much confidence in that, but well see. I have read so many of the keezer/bar builds and most of you make it look simple. My biggest problem is I'm undecisive and a procrastinator.

So far this is what I have. I plan on making an L shape bar with the entrance to the left side. It doesn't seem like I need to build a base for the freezer as it seems that it about the same hight as the cabinet is now.



I'm still kinda undecided about a counter top. The wife all ways wanted granite but that won't be possible with lid. We have seen some solid surface counter tops that are seamless. They look nice and about as heavy as firmika but then I'll need a seem for the lid. Not sure how that would look.

I guess all I need to do is frame out and box in the fridges leaving a couple inches gap around all sides. Skin it with oak ply wood. Put decorative trim on and stain??

A friend told me he thinks with two fridges I'll need to run a new line and breaker.?.

I'm sure I'll have more questions soon. Thanks for the help,input,opinions.

I've seen some very impressive bar tops made out of hardwood flooring.

Are you going to be putting in a sink? If your not you could swap the freezer with the cabinets on the wall.

Is the "c" in "Srceenplay" silent or what?

Cheers!

Yes there will be a sink. Plumbing is behind that wall

I just noticed that the freezer has an alarm on it. So do I have to hunt it down and cut it out?

Just switch it off. That's what I did on my keezer ('cuz otherwise it would be sounding off 24/7)...

Cheers!
