ALMFamily Theater "Lobby"

Greetings all!

The days are getting colder which means it is time to start the inside projects again! And so, without further ado, the ALMFamily Theater Lobby commences!

This will not be the 2 year long project the theater was as I will not have to worry about soundproofing here - thank goodness!

Here is what we have to start with for space.

This is the entrance to the lobby - I am considering doing a tile / carpet combination for the floor so that I can create a "walkway" to the theater door:




These next two show the wall right to the left as you walk through the entry. This is where the counter will be with a sink and plenty of outlets for crockpots, etc. The wall to the left of the theater door (stained) will be made into shelving for movies and CDs with a backlit stained glass theater sign incorporated into the design of the shelving:



This picture shows where the diagonal wall will be with the door to enter my "finishing" room - I am putting all my cutting tools and such in my garage and I will just be doing staining / finishing work in this room. This will also be where the media server will be located:




These last two show where the washer and dryer will be relocated to. The second picture shows the wall where I am putting the door to allow access to the water heater and softener. To the right of that door, I will be installing my "drink" station - I am putting in a kegerator (a freezer converted to store 5 gallon canisters) that will store soda and my homemade beer. A future project will be to create a "brewing" area. As you can see, we have already studded out two of the walls:




Here is a picture of the start of the kegerator:



Let the fun begin!

I know right! My neighbor set his up a couple years ago which is what put the idea in my head - actually planning to brew up a batch today as it takes 2-3 weeks to ferment and I should have the kegerator done by then..

Re: ALMFamily Theater "Lobby"

I'll be brewing a batch this weekend too in time for the holidays! And as coincidentally our HT builds are, oddly enough our "lobbies" will most likely turn out very similar since I'll be incorporating a bar/brewing area!

What are you planning to make? Do you have any plans yet on the brewing area?

Re: ALMFamily Theater "Lobby"

Home brew, Kegorator, and home theater... count me in. I'm down to my last bottle and haven't started the next batch yet. I'm also interested in your plans for the brewing area. I'm considering it as well, kitchen not really big enough and hate lugging everything up and down the stairs.
