    Not sure if I mentioned it anywhere else here, but we had a flood in the basement a while back. It was an insurance claim. The renovation is all done now, including some upgrades that we arranged in the process. Now moving on to some remodeling.

    C'mon man, laundry takes up the whole basement! Just kidding, basement was finished when we bought the place, main floor laundry helps too

    Bar dismantled. Man the dude that built fancied himself a wood worker... his construction method was brutal...

    Very nice and I really like the idea of putting in a drop ceiling in the basement. I know sound suppression is better with a hard lid, but I like having the access.

    Very very very noice Craiger oh man I know it mightnt be so but I sure do love me some font taps as you know! A bit more of an ask but aseticaly pleasing ( just ask my wife lol double meaning I know;)).

    Keep it comming big man I'm looking forward to what you've got comming our way.

    What I'm seeing now vs before is Craiger is getting a bit more sleek in his old age all clean edges and all bravo I say looking very sleek my man;).

    Picked up the bartop today, that is one heavy piece of wood! Red Oak 100" long, 32" wide, 1-3/4" thick. Must be close to 150 pounds. Just need to stain, and finish it.

    Missed this post Ben, no I am not. There was a glassware hanging thing over the bar previously, never liked it actually!
