The Cedar Room (Basement Remodel) & Action Pics! (latest pics post #47)
Other than building a better table, hanging up a few more things, and maybe building a drink cart or two, my basement remodel is finally done! (it only took 2+ years ) It's a relief to finally have it done. We had our first game last night. Lots of fun. I lost money in both the tournament and the cash game.
Anyway, here's how I found it:
Time to strip it to the bare bones.
I framed-in a closet and bookshelf. The divider between the bookshelf and laundry room leaves space for a drink fridge that opens into the laundry room.
Got clamps? That's a casing for the I-beam.
In half of the basement I stapled canvas on the ceiling and then covered the seams with cedar trim. I got the idea from either Wyatt Earp or Tombstone (can't remember which) where Doc is in a canvas/timber frame "saloon."
Almost done--just need to finish the closet, counter-tops and assorted trim.
My wife and I found the stone cards in Jasper, Alberta on our honeymoon. My sister gave me the picture of Crystal, Colorado's Old Mill this Christmas, and the stock certificate is from a Denver railroad in the 1880's.
This is the consolation table for people who want to start a side game after busting out of the main tournament.
Thanks for checking it out!
