2: After 7 very cold winters in this room I decided that it was time to take the TV into the living room. Don had just completed a 2 week training course in Bartending and we decided that a Bar would be the perfect Re-Use of this room.
4: It didn't take long for all of the old bath fixtures to get "picked" from the curb!
5: Removal of Half Bath
6: The goal was to hide the slanted ceiling and provide a tall enough wall to hang my parents bedroom mirror over the future bar-back. Although we had planned for a sink in this area, it was not in the cards. We did not want to invest in a plumber to fix the problems.
8: Starting to add the finishes. Paint, Wainscoting and ceiling finishes we worked on through out the project. I put wainscoting up, the guys had to take it down for re-wire of the wall to add sconces. Then we put it back up! Big Thanks go to Mark Gramlich and his electrical skills. I love the new sconces!
9: We are so blessed to have so many great friends to help us during the project. Jeff, Tom, Daniel, Todd and Bob were just a few of the helpers. They work cheap - Beer and Pizza. And on one special occasion they got WHITE CASTLE. Nothing is too good for this group!
10: I love shopping in Barb's Garage!
12: FIRST PARTY TO BREAK IN THE NEW BAR. IN LIEU OF A COSTUME OUR GUESTS WERE ABLE TO BRING A BOTTLE OF SPIRITS TO THE BAR.
23: Carols at the Coppertop Tavern lead by JP Fitzgerald
24: BUS 4 ROCKS!
25: First annual eastside house-bar crawl organized by Kenny at Wings. 4 host bars and a final stop at Under the Wing for fun and prizes. Each bar had a specialty drink. We raised money for Wings Charities. Don and I won BEST BAR
28: BELLS OBERON, BEER TASTING WINNER: JADE AND NATALIE TAYLOR
29: As Don and Kirk are demonstrating on the right, the rules are simple: Pour, Taste, Vote. Each couple brought a beer they have always wanted to taste but had not done so.
30: Some beers..... | are better..... | than others!
31: For some it was rootBEER tasting!
