I started my project in Feb of 2012 and just completed it fully today, June 2012. While it's been a hugely fun project I'm very glad to have it complete as it was a lot of work. While I had help I managed the project and did most of the work (save for painting, floor, cabinet trim and tape/sand drywall). So far I've only found 2 things I would change, my bar is a bit too high (by only 3") and I should have added a ceiling fan. Other than that I couldn't be happier with how the project turned out. I live in a rather modest neighborhood and have a relatively small home (1500 sq/ft) so it makes it feel like I added an entirely new room to the house.
So here's before (I'd already ripped out some shelving - didn't get a proper before photo) and after.
Noteable features are:
- 2 PCs (one for internet use and one for TV/movies/video)
- Speakers for Sonos zone (PC can also feed Sonos)
- Air compressor built into cabinet with retracting hose
- Ceiling retractable power cord
- Professional done epoxy floor
- Craftsman stainless toolchest
- IKEA cabinets
- Custom framed art (Lotus prints by ZWhitaker)
