When designing this basement, my client requested an over the top, Irish themed bar, with an Old World influence. I’ve always been a sucker for arches in my designs, and I wanted to incorporate the reclaimed wood within the bar itself to give that earthy, wood-meets-stone look, but I had to figure out how I could use them both together without making the bar look boxed in. So I figured out how to build the arches within the bar wall, using the stone to frame the wood. I loved this basement finish of mine so much, I used the same idea for my own basement (see previous pictures), and my client is pretty darn happy with it as well! I design all of my own work, as well as, build it.
