Basement Billiard Room in Progress


Basement Billiard Room in Progress

Hi All. I am new to the forum, and wanted to start a page to show the progress on what will be my billiard room in the future.

The project slowed recently, but I thought you would appreciate a before picture. This was done all in the name of removing ALL obstructions. A goal which could be appreciated by those on this forum I'm sure!

Now I realized I can fit a 9' pool table into this space. Woo hoo! I am selling my 8 footer now!

These first pictures show the original state of the basement, and the installation of a steel beam, etc. so I could remove walls. Also, if you visit the site listed below, I wrote about everything we did in this first set of photos.

    Good luck! I am glad to hear that you were able to fit the 9' pool table in your space. I'm sure you will like that a lot better.

    I just finished my sub floor. Finally! It has been a long time. I know, don't ask, LOL! The concrete grinding and leveling was a pain in the a$$.

    I will be opening my finest beer (V-12, yup 12%! and it's corked) to celebrate this milestone. Now I just have to get that air gun popping and make it look like something down there! I am hoping to complete it this summer. I can't wait to post up some pics... someday.

    Here are a couple new pictures. The pool room is still nothing special but it is heading in the right direction. The Tyroc sub-floor is down and some wood is going up.

    The future pool table area:

    I had to get a little creative around this pole and the channel iron and top plates. The 2x4 isn't really correct but doing the corner this way saves a precious 2" (1 1/2" instead of 3 1/2") at the pole spot and blends with the beam box out which was turned flat to also keep it smaller. I got a top piece in that return too, so it's solid.

    The goal is to maximize space for sure. I guess it is time to get rid of the old wiring and get the new wiring run! Sure is getting crowded in the unfinished area!

    That room is coming along great. Nice work so far.

    Nice setup overall. I think it would be best if you focus on all the individual furniture placement - that way the entire room won't look congested.

    Nice room. Looks great. I hope to see how it finally turns out.

    Well, it has been a while. The bar tonight, like most nights, is taking a front seat, but the Diamond pool table is very nice and ready for EARL haha.

    We did manage a Super Bowl party. We are still working on the bathroom and on putting pictures on the wall and stuff. I have been working overtime at work lately and slacking a little on the project. But it is nice not to need a short stick anymore! I STILL NEED THE 3! LOL

    Here are a few more photos of the bar and pool table area:

    The other pool "distraction" is the home theater area. But really, the fact that we have a 9 foot area with NO obstructions is the best feature. Better late than never. Too many HopDevil's I guess! (HopDevil is a Downingtown, PA beer)

    Diamond Paragon! Waited for years and it is finally here! I still need the 3!

    Except vs. the Wife, LOL. Got a Diamond Paragon "Pro" table, Aramith "Pro" balls, and Pro cloth. Now I just need those "Pro" skills, LOL.

    Good Shootin' to all! Except vs. the wife! LOL

    Sweet! I love the ceiling tiles too! It looks like your speakers need some grills though.
