Hi Heynow! The fact that you built such a classy bar is great in itself, but you taking the time to post all these step by step and extremely detailed photos makes me want to get up & get started, and so I have.
Actually, I 'started' when I began the job of enclosing my back patio July 2004 (I have no basement). It had a leaky roof but no sides. To make a long story short it's now enclosed with 10 windows, a storm door & steel door to the yard and french doors to the family room. The sheetrock ceiling & walls are taped & painted. I've wired for a ceiling fan and there are two doubled up electric outlets and one single. I also brought cable TV access in. The floor is still cement.
My bar will be a dry one (meaning no tap, of course). Since there will be a window in back, I can't install a back bar like yours; it'll have to be a 'side bar' if you will. OK, I realize it HAS been 2 1/2 years, but I'm not retired and only have weekends and nights (in summer). Since my daugter is graduating from college in May I know I HAVE to get in high gear before the party or I'll N-E-V-E-R hear the end of it. The job got easier after I got the good ideas from you. Thanks a lot! Tom H.
