Can't say we were below budget, but we were right on it. With a lot of elbow grease and hard work, all of that cost right around $2500. However, my father-in-law does have some family members who helped out for free (nephew is a millworker and put the bar up for us at no cost). Couches were from the main living room and new ones were purchased in their place. Bar TV was extra from storage. We have a few last details to do, such as put a riser between the carpet and hardwood and put trim around the newly placed drywall but Thanks! Once we get the HDMI Handshake issues taken care of and those things, everything will be done!
