    I’ve had quite a few requests for some of the build details for the basement project we did. So here are some video walkthroughs of the basement. A before video and I’ll throw some build pics in here as well. Pinsiders are always welcome. Bring a quarter to get in though .

    I do want to thank JJ of Game Exchange of CO. He has been a huge resource, friend, and just offers the best customer service of anyone in this industry. If you need a great place to get anything for your basement. He is the man to see.

    Also like to thank Mustang Paul for making very cool LED leg lights, and Scott at Pinstadium lights. Both got many comments during our house warming party last Saturday.

    Very impressive indeed!!! The vids are great (especially the before one). Having seen this place in person you just can't grasp the entire awesomeness from a vid. You've done an excellent job!

    That's an awesome game room. Well done.

    These pictures are amazing.
    How big is the basement?
    Do you feed those animals? Are they just not afraid of people?

    I think the basement is around 3000 sq feet maybe a bit more.

    Evergreen is known for Elk. They pretty much have free reign. We also have a local cougar (not that kind ), mama bear and cubs and a cool black fox.

    #15 3 years ago

    Amazing!!

    Love the replica FLYNN sign, my son would love his name up in lights on my game room wall, I need to get one of those!

    #16 3 years ago

    Sweet mother of God, your basement is twice the size of my house! Incredible job.

    #17 3 years ago

    Wow! Incredible!! Great job! Amazing!!! How many other ways can I say how impressive your home is?? The envy of all of your fellow pinsiders. Have fun!!

    #18 3 years ago

    this is all simply fantastic

    #22 3 years ago

    Wow. Best thread I’ve seen in a long time. Amazing job.

    Are you opposed to adopting any 35yr old guys willing to relocate? I'm a B+ laundry folder and make a mean spaghetti and butter!

    #24 3 years ago

    Wow! I love it. Love the Tron arcade door just like the Legacy scene... but hey, wait a sec, I just wanted to play tron and the door opened!

    #25 3 years ago

    Keep pics coming. Great job

    #26 3 years ago

    Totally blown away - off the charts impressive. Seriously nice work!!

    #27 3 years ago

    When the secret door is open is it 180 against the wall or sticking out into the room? And can you have it leave the door open on purpose? It's all very cool looking atmosphere wise, but I can't imagine you'd want people waiting for the door EVERY time they went in or out.

    #28 3 years ago

    That looks awesome, but what I would really like to know is how many people contributed to your “go fund me” to help you pay for it?

    The door opens about 165 degrees. It can be programmed to hold full open and not close.

    BUT - AB-SO-FREAKIN'-LUTELY amazing basement, congratulations!

    #33 3 years ago

    Yea that didn’t go over so well. AMEX was my only sponsor

    #34 3 years ago

    I remember seeing some of your posts in the "show your gameroom" thread a couple weeks back... Absolutely amazing man. Fanfukingtastic job all around. Wow. Thanks for adding the videos, as if I couldn't get any more jealous!

    #35 3 years ago

    #36 3 years ago

    Super impressive!!! You did an incredible job.
    This is the nicest game room I’ve ever seen.
    Something to really be proud of.
    Congrats!

    #37 3 years ago

    This cave base is awesome.
    Money is important but when it serves to great decorative, laying out, lighting ideas, the result is breathtaking
    I love the space, I love the materials and the mix with stone, facing bricks, wood, carpet coz used with fondness, I love this arcade door, I love this private movie theater with the starry sky...and I love these animals too!
    Good job!!!

    #40 3 years ago

    Well done sir. You beat me to the whole Tron Arcade secret door thing from the Legacy movie. Oh well. Mine won't be the first but I hope it's as cool as yours one day. Nice job!

    #41 3 years ago

    i'm in the wrong friggin' industry! absolutely beautiful!

    #42 3 years ago

    Stunning to say the least!

    #43 3 years ago

    This is the greatest game room I have seen!! Just wonderful attention to detail. Thanks for the videos!

    #44 3 years ago

    You people with basements have it so good, I hope you realize that. In California, typically if it was built after 1940, it ain't got no basement.

    Congrats on the great game room, though. It's easy to tell it took a lot of planning and consideration. It was very well executed and came out amazing.

    wait - is that really true? Houses in California don't generally have basements? Even in the suburbs?

    #46 3 years ago

    very cool.

    I'm afraid so. Very high housing costs and no basements.
