Thought I would start my game room thread early in the planning stages. I'll start with some CAD 3D images with a concept that I chose and will continue to add details to it. I need to plan for moving walls, electrical, plumbing, lighting, display cases, storage spaces, etc.. So, to kick it off, I currently have 5 pinball machines, English Mark Darts, pool table, foosball, air hockey (might get ride of that), ping pong. Future plans include adding a multi-cade, and of course another pinball likely. For the bar, I want it big enough as most of my family and friends like to sit "at the bar" for socializing. I have to remove walls for that area. Multiple TVs are a necessity for multiple sports on at the same time. There are a few other walls that I have to remove/move as well. I want a "football hall of fame" for my football paraphernalia as you approach the bar from the stairs. The fireplace is already there and need to work around it, but make it a good focal point too. In these images, the bar stools are larger than I will likely get and pulled out a bit as if everyone was already sitting at them. It is a little better than 4 foot wide between the bar and the angled wall (that I would have to move). I might make the bar a little smaller, but not much. I used to be a bartender and my wife was a waitress at the same bar/restaurant where we met ... 30 years ago. The bar is an important piece to us, so a small little bar just wont cut it. Coolers, sink, maybe a mini glass washer and ice maker too.
Obviously I can move "stuff" around. The initial real planning is walls, electrical and plumbing with "stuff" configured in a fun atmosphere. I'll update this on rare occasions to show the slow progress, as I likely wont start on it all until next fall. I have until then to polish my plans with the details ... but here are some basic concepts with it being actually dimensionally correct. These are not the final color choices or such ... just my starting point.
This is going to be a big do it yourself makeover project! It will take a few years before it is totally completed.
