Prior Lake Basement Finishing Project Bar

Basement Finishing Starts with a Clean Slate

Country Creek Builders has been hard at it, completing another basement finishing project.

In order to provide the homeowner with an open bar area for the design of the basement finishing project the Country Creek Builders crew had to remove a 22′ long load bearing wall. We then installed a 22′ long steel beam in order to support the upper level. In order to support that steel beam, we had to jack hammer the concrete floor and pour two 2′ x 2′ concrete footings. It took the help of all my subs and friends to install this 960 pound beam.

After the wall was removed, the real work could begin.

Bar Area

The bar area was designed so that the homeowners could view the projection TV while hanging out at the bar. The cabinets are constructed of Knotty Alder with a clear finish. The bar was finished off by installing African Rainbow Granite from Midwest Tile. The TV Cabinets compliment the bar with the same wood species, finish and design.  The interior doors are two Paneled Painted doors with a upper panel arched and beaded.

Tile Selections Complement the Project

The bar area floor for this basement finishing project was tiled with Briarwood Mocha tile from the Tile Shop. The bar splash tile is Sandlewood Tumbled 7.5 X 15 CM tile. The bathroom floor tile is Marvel Wood tile that is 15 X 60 CM. The tile was finished with a metal edge to meet the carpet.

As with any remodeling or basement finishing project, designing the project correctly from the beginning is essential. Check out our Kitchens, Bathrooms and Basements galleries to view past projects that the Country Creek Team has worked on.
