Describe the project, what makes it unusual, and/or any outstanding characteristics.
A basement bar to hold a Stein collection 25 years in the making. These homeowners had a impressive collection of Beer Steins, however, realized they weren’t able to enjoy them packed away in their basement. So, what better way to display them than build a bar and rec room where they are not only displayed, but friends and family can comfortably relax. We not only added the beautiful Cherry bar complete with custom raised panel wainscot, but also included a new fireplace with built-ins showcasing their collections. The fireplace wood tops and mantel compliment the medium cherry stain on the bar. The custom Chicago bar rail that was fabricated in our shop tops this high traditional bar. The floating shelf and stem ware rack in front of the mirrored backsplash creates depth and light to the small space. The turned display cabinet at the side of the microwave hides this utilitarian feature from general view. The pictures say it all, beautiful, warm, sophisticated and yes… what a great collection of Steins.
