This is a basement room my brother and I finished out with a bar. The clients are very social and love entertaining, so this really is a great room to have for this purpose.

The bar was designed and constructed by another shop. We just did the install..

The clients on this project are great to work with and we have worked extensively on their house during the construction. We have continued to work for them since the construction ended.

One of the best things in life is working with my brother. We make a great team.

Just your average, run-of-the-mill basement, eh Todd?

This is really sweet!

Yeah, just an average, dark, musty, low ceiling basement. Good for nothing but storing excess crap.

Ai Caramba! One of those claustrophobic places with no light or ambiance either.

It’s a breath of fresh air when I hear of how brothers can work and enjoy what they do together.

Those white patio doors sure make the room. LOL! Great room! They did a nice job separating the bar area from activity area. Well done Todd!!!

Wow Todd, that has got to be the best entertainment room I’ve ever seen. The English pub style without the normal overdue people seen to think they need. Outstanding work, but one question….how do they get the people to leave once they get in there???? LOL

I’ve always wished I had a brother. Maybe he’d like doing the things I hate. LOL Great job on this one as well, Todd.
