Default Man cave build

Man cave in the making I need pics from others for Christmas ideas go for gold! I'm still early enough to make changes.

Wow...how much those $20 taps set you back? And how in the hell are you going to keep them all filled?

Here is the POS freezer I have to chill beer behind the tap system. It was previously cooled via glycol I'm still looking for a good way to keep the tower cool suggestions are welcome.

The 20 tap tower looks much better than the door

Showoff

Hope you're getting rid of those incadescent lights.
Find/pick a theme and run with it.

You can buy a refrigerator condensing unit and use a copper pipe in contact with the beer lines as the cooling coil. This is how I've seen it done if bars before. Of course this would likely have to be installed by a professional and would be costly.

I'm a plumbing contractor with many friends in hvac just need a direction to go I was thinking some sort of recirculating pump with antifreeze or something along those lines. SWMBO says finish the poly stain and paint I'm thinking draft system so I can enjoy the paint and stain process while I paint and stain. Yes the light fixtures will be different in the final pics. We all know who wins the battle of whats done first so it may be after Christmas when I get my first pour. Ideas would help.
