O'Shea's Neighborhood Bar Build - Page 11

Very nice. Well done. What a great hang out space. You did disappoint me though when you pulled the tap and let that beer just go to waste. Such sacrilege! Otherwise you have a fantastic space.

Kudos.

Brian the bar is REALLY looking great. Both videos really bring it all together for us all. Glad you shared and if you were closer I would LOVE to hang out there and have a few beers. I love how the rock wall turned out and the chalk board paint in the bathroom is simply a great idea.

I know. I agree. That only happened in the first video back when I was a beer rookie. Notice that I do not make the same mistake in the 2012 video.

Thanks man. The chalkboard in the bathroom is a huge hit. I have discovered that the ladies like to post some dirty dirty stuff. They are worse then the guys! Wished you lived closer too! If you are ever in the New York area...gotta look me up.

Chalk paint in the bathroom....great idea. I'll be doing some kind of stone work in my place as well, that came out phenomenal.

The only thing I don't like is the Giants comments on your Twitter feed

Hello everyone! Just wanted to check in with my AVS peeps! There has not been a whole of improvements to the bar...but concrete staining and foot rails are slated for a May install.
For now I have been just enjoying having a bar and hosting a Jeep meet and greet and drink:

Very nice!
I really like the touch screen jukebox, can you tell me what software you are using and how you got it set up like that? I am working on my theater/media room and i would love to have a touchscreen jukebox setup like that for my 165 gigs of music!!
post #311 of 364
^^ The software is called Albumplayer and can be downloaded/purchased from their website. I also have it in my bar area (thanks to Brian)and enjoy it's ease of use.

As IuSteve said the software is called Albumplayer. CLICK HERE TO CHECK IT OUT

Very easy to use, great support, they even have their own forum!

The other key componet is the sound card on your computer. If your computer came with a sound card with a digital output (usually black) then you do not have to do anything else. If no digital output, you might want to consider changing out your sound card to one with digital out put. Like anything else there are cheap ones and expensive ones. You do not need an expensive one, cheap one works just fine.

CLICK HERE TO SEE CHEAP SOUNDCARD

CLICK HERE TO SEE EXPENSIVE SOUNDCARD

The other key component is the actual touch screen. The price depends on the size and brand and all that.

If you need any more help, PM me.

wait a minute........
killians on tap????

we can't find it here,,,(NE ohio), where do you get it?

we had pretty much decided to not put in a kegerator because we can't find kegs of killians

only other beer drinker in the house drinks bud light (ack phooey) & his wife ( my daughter) said he didn't need to spend $350 , on a gizmo that probably won't recoup . ( I guess if we did it , we would have to get 1/4 kegs,, not enough parties here to use it up)

350 would easily be recouped! Because of the Co2 tank, beer can stay fresh in a keg for about 5-6 months depending on type and brand of beer. But the avg is about 6 months. A Keg is the equivelent to 6 1/2 cases of beer or about 141 red cups.

One red cup of beer from your keg costs about .65 cents. How much is a glass of beer at bar? 4? 5? bucks?? A kegerator will easily pay for itself very quickly!

Brian,

I hate you, I really do. I am gone for a couple months and log back in to see that you put up a freaking rock wall!!! That looks incredible. I totally wanted to do that around the bar but my mom (oops, I meant "Wife") won't let me. Very, Very cool looking.

Looks good. You should have it etched into a bar mirror.

BTW - I'll probably be hitting you up soon with some questions around your touchscreen jukebox. I think I'm going to add a flat screen to my rack.

Great build, youve motivated me to get cracking on redoing mine. Mine has fallen into disrepair and needs a few new tweaks. Just outta curiosity, what did ya end up paying per square foot for teh stone wall. I really like that look and want to do it myself. Love the juke box, Im waiting till my compute takes a dump and then i can get a new one and set it up downstairs. Lookign forward to more updates

Don't wait...just the music on an external hard drive for now. Then, when you purchase the new computer just connect the external drive to the new computer! AlbumPlayer is the jukebox software and will most likely work on your computer. I paid 2,000 for that wall. Stone and labor included.

Hello everybody!

I have been busy busy busy building a pool deck. Here is what it looks like now:

373

Getting to this point was one year in the making.

Because I am too lazy to copy and paste it from my blog (and have to edit all the pics) please just click below and head on over to my blog. Coffee is on and I just swept.

HERE IS THE STORY
post #328 of 364
Ugh...What a PITA. I feel your pain with contractors. Sadly, it seems like there are more bad ones than good.

It's been a crapshot here with getting work done. We'll go off a referral and then basically get an opinion one way or another after that. We've had some bad ones that we've been able to identify upfront, but have managed to snag some decent (and even cheap) ones on occasion. To date, the guy that just finished building my cabinets yesterday is the best yet.

We had gutters put on our house a few weeks ago.The guy that did the work did a good job and was on time. I thought everything was well until we had out first big rain. I went outside and noticed the water running down from the 2nd floor roof, moving so fast that it was hopping over the lower gutter and blasting the driveway. Not a big deal I figured, we'll just have him come back out and add a section on the upstairs to channel the water down to the lower gutter. 12 feet of gutter and a 6 foot downspout.. Can't be more than $50-60 right?? WRONG


I called the guy up ad he literally told me he had a minimum job fee. WTF about he $1500 I just gave you two days ago?? The end result was that it would be $160, and he'd "try to get to it sometime over the next two weeks depending on his other jobs". Something about having to order the color, setup the machine, change his tampon, blah blah blah... I felt like we were pretty much at his mercy since no one else is going to come out for a $100 job.

That gutter guy did that on purpose. He knew exactly what he was doing. What a d-bag. At this point, I would rather hire someone else even if it cost more money based on principle. And let him know that. biggrin.gif

I was wondering that too. My wife even said that the so called "expert" should have caught that when he was doing the initial estimate. Pisses me off even more to think that I was so pleased with the initial work that I gave both guys on the crew a beer at the end of the day.
