Some minor updates....

I still have been boxing in the ductwork for the direct mount ceiling (ceiling max), I have changed my design like 3 times now, but here is basically the final design i'm sticking with otherwise I'll never get it done for the Super Bowl party. With this design I am still running the ceiling max strips on top of this.






A couple of posts back I talked about the free samples of the 2x2 ceiling tiles that I ordered, well they arrived and now it's just choosing which ones to go with. The Stafford (1st photo & the cheapest) seem so flimsy to me but eveyone I talk to says they are okay when they are up, I really like the third one but at $18.95 a piece I think I'll pass on them considering how many I need but they are much more sturdy and the design is much more detailed. So I am still going to search around a little bit before making a final choice. I still have to install all of the ceiling max before I really need to make the final call.









I also finally realized or should I say swallowed my pride finally and admitted I can't live without having water for the bar area, so I am installing cabinets & a countertop where the dart board was. I will move the dart board to where the arcade games are and either get rid of the arcade games (kids don't play them as much as I thought).
I am going to plumb in a small bar sink in this area so I went and purchased a 36 x 30 wall cabinet that matches my other cabinets behind the bar, I only have 15 1/4 " depth and length of 42" so base cabinets would not have worked. Using the wall cabinets is a easy way to accomplish this without having to build my own cabinets since I am pushed for time.
I started making the base for the wall cabinets to sit on. I couldn't finish because I need the 3" spacers for each side of the cabinets that I forgot to pick up when I was at Lowes.


The drain is visible on the left.




The cabinet is just sitting on the base for now and is not attatched or anything, It will have the overhang on the front to give the appearance that it is a base cabinet.

I think a concrete top would look killer on those cabinets! Having spent a ton of money on plumbing my bar, I can't imagine not having a sink and dishwasher. I don't think you'll regret the decision.

I think I am going to use the mosaic tile that I was going to use as the back splash for the countertop. I give you all the credit in the world with the concrete top but seems like too much work for me and I use to work with the stuff for a living LOL.
I thought that I wouldn't need water down there but since we have had a few parties you really do need to have at least water and I agree a dishwasher is right behind that with proper planning which I didn't do and have no way of adding it now. Maybe at the next house.

I don't blame you, I have the molds made for my Bar top. I just can't seem to find the motivation to mix the concrete to fill them. It's a lot of work...

Hey Mike what mixture are you using for these? Are you just going off the bag instructions or mixing to what is easier to handle ? I may entertain doing one with copper chips or strips imbedded of course

Couple of updates but not much with Halloween and Halloween partys and all. I did manage to get some of the flush mount ceiling tracks installed but still deciding on which tiles to go with, decisions decisions... here are a couple of shots of that.






I also managed to mount the cabinet where the bar sink is going to be, still need to make a 45 degree end panel and then put the counter top on.





Okay here are some fun shots of play time....

ME and the Mrs before BEER



Me AFTER BEERS, many BEERS ummm long story.....

While sitting on the couch daydreaming I realized the pic's were in honor of rastargate's old thread, of course not even close to being in his league but hey it was fun.

Not much to update just pulled out my full size helmets to measure and start buiding a shelf to mount them. I purchased some glass shelves from Ikea but I want to make some kind of enclosed shelf above the "to be" bar sink and another in the in the sitting room area.... Does anyone have any pics of some shelving they made that would meet what I need, I need some ideas....Thanks

Updates on the direct mount ceiling install, I almost have it finished, It was easier then I initially thought and can be done by only 1 person. The panel is flimsy by itself but once up and all four sides are supported it is much better. Here are some pictures of where I am at currently.

I will answer for my good friend Dennis here since he has gone MIA on us and is nowhere to be found. He got his at his local Home Depot or Lowes (I forgot which but if you read through this thread he mentions it.) and I answered on my thread where I got mine. If you check you may find that your local box store may carry it as some do. His has a different contour than mine does so its all a matter of what you prefer and can get at a good price since this stuff can get expensive. Do a google search for bar rail or chicago bar rail and you will find alot of places that carry it.

Thanks for the reply... My local HD and Lowes do not carry it. There is a local mill i am going to get a quote from... I don't know what a good deal is.

I just posted pics of my project... I will need about 16 feet of the bar rail, preferably in one 12 foot and one 4 foot.

Do you mind saying what you paid for your rail?
post #475 of 495
I will have to look for the receipt and get back to you with a private message as soon as I find it.

LOL, i am still around not much to update so I didn't want to take up space. I've been lurking around, watching you get yours all nice and stuff. Funny how just last year you were asking me questions and now look at the place...nice job so far.

Not much updates other than I've finally been working on adding water to the bar area which will make my life so much easier (so sick of taking dirty glasses upstairs to wash them and unable to pour out unfininshed drinks downstairs) This past weekend I got the water lines plumbed up and all set to go once I pick out a sink and countertop.



Because the only available spot was where the dart board used to be, I decided to use wall cabinets for the base cabinet to continue the same look as the bar cabinets.



I've also been working on the equipment closet, I started drywalling it and finally picked up some shelving unit that I added wheels too so I can rotate it to be able to get to the back easily. Nothing as fansy as most people but functional for me and since it's in the furnace room, no one see it anyways. Still much more to do in there but I just starting to get it going.

Finally picked out a sink and started getting it ready to get the sink area finished. Another SuperBowl party without it is getting me motivated to just get it done so next years party I won't have the deal with the same old issues of not having running water or a drain. Took some quick shots of the updates. Adding a sink into a wall cabinet was not as difficult as I initially thought it would be. When choosing the sink I looked for measurments that would fit inside the cabinet without having to cut the back of the cabinet out which would have required me to add reinforcing to it and adding a more work. Other than cutting the hole out with a jigsaw, there was no other things I needed to do to the cabinet. It's sturdy and does exactly what I needed it to do. At only 16 inches wide there was no way to add a regular base cabinet so that is why I used the wall cabinet and it's 12" wide x 36" long.

Finally I finished up the new bar sink area. I have water whoooohoooo. I only have to add the kick molding and a back splash and then I am done. I wish I would have added this initially with the bar build but thought it wouldn't be that big of a deal, boy was I wrong. Just like everything else I do I always go back afterward and do stuff I should have done in the first place. Oh well. One down... fifteen million more things to do....
Here's some shots of the finished sink area.
