I'm lucky that the wife and I pretty much have the same tastes so we have no trouble agreeing on anything.

Jeff, looks great!

In this picture:


Is there a specific reason you didn't extend the carpet around the back of the bar? Two reasons I ask. One is spills cleanup easier on hardwood and two, sliding chairs around are easier on wood as well.

We wanted a hard surface for easy cleanup. Refrigerator, sink, micro-wave, oven and work surface areas are going to be prone to most spills. If this was the only bar maybe it would be make a lot of sense to bring the wood around front. (you call it the back?) But, we have the other bar in back of the seating where I would think more spills will happen in dark. We also looked at tiles in all different colors as well as different colored woods but ended up with what is the only brown surface in the room except for the cupholders on the Berkines, but it works for us.

Anyway we thought about different places to break the carpet and this just worked for us.

are we talking about the same thing? I'm talking about wood around the area where the stools go (where the footrail is), not the counters?

Right, we made a decision not to do that area.

Bump for the coolest construction thread here!

Hey bigsy... do you get to change your sig yet and say you're done? Place looks finished and purdy enough to go in electronic house and put their theaters to shame. I saw your post about everything that needs to be done but it all sure looks done to me.

Still lot's to do, but have been working on the 1/2 bath upstairs, and other things. With the stock market in the pits I have a hard time making a decision to part with my money.

My latest accomplishment was getting my Directv upgraded to the mpeg4 system. That was a story. Took 3 visits before I got some one willing to climb up on my roof (it's very high).

First guy was scared to go on the roof because of some ice (I wouldn't either)
Second guy took one look and said there was no way it was going to work where my existing 3 LNB dish was mounted because of the trees.
Third guy said he would climb up with the dish and his signal finder and give it a try. Four hours later I was in HD Heaven.

Anyone in the area should request Luis Gonzalez, tech #9410 for their install/upgrade.

I had a similar thing happen to me but it only took 2 trips instead of three to get my dish upgraded. The first guy said "No way I'm getting up there"

Couldn't believe it.

Anyway I got mine upgraded a few months and ago and it is awesome

I love your house.
post #172 of 1618
A beautiful house to match a beautiful theater!
post #173 of 1618
Where in NoVa are you? I'm in Arlington, and we certainly haven't seen that much snow this year. I'm guessing somewhere out in the Loudon direction?
post #174 of 1618

That is just a PIC I had on my HD of the last storm a couple years back. This year was pretty tame.

Thanks all, the house is actually my 5th. I started with $2000 down on a duplex, living in one side when we were first married in 1975, then just kept trading up.

At 24 I'm about to do the same next year, I can only hope to get as high as you have.

Btw, I love the amount of detail and time you're putting into your project. It is really looking magnificent.

Do you have a Cement Pond too???

Funny you should say that. In back of my house there is a storm water retention pond required for county drainage requirements. In essence it's a dry pond. When we get a heavy rainfall the drainage water for my half of the street goes through this pond. It has a 10 inch round metering hole and if it all can't make it through it starts backing up into the pond.

We refer to it as a the cement pond because the metering device is cement.
