Default Bar construction

After viewing the thread "Rick's Bar" I've decided to post my own bar construction pics as I build my bar over the next month. Before I begin I want to thank Rick for his great thread, photos, and ideas - many of which I will be incorporating into my own bar. I'll begin with some photos and diagrams of my basement layout.

And here are three photos of my basement including the area where the bar will go.

Here is a diagram of the 10' wall section of the bar. I will have to redo the electrical and rough-in for the wet bar which will require some dry-wall work. I'm also going to have to snake a coax from my utility room to this wall for the in-bar TV.

Looking ahead I'm going to be adding some games. This is a limited edition "Marble Links Golf" game that I acquired. I'm also looking at getting a multicade stand up arcade game.

After a great deal of deliberation I've decided to modify the inexpensive low-end in-stock unfinished cabinets at Lowe's. They will be primed and painted black. The panel is an insert of 5 mm bead board paneling also from Lowe's.

Looking good! I love basement theaters. What are you running for a projector?

I'm running an Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 8100 purchased at Best Buy. I've been very happy with it as a middle of the road projector. Also, Epson's customer service/warranty is second to none. Still haven't had time to do a calibration so reds are a bit strong. I run everything through a Denon AVR-1611 Receiver. XBOX 360 & Sony Blu-Ray player complete the system. Just got Netflix steaming through the XBOX and love it.
