The Last Load Lounge

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

It's taken us a bit longer than we had hoped to get to this point, but the first load has finally gone up at the Last Load Lounge, our new game room. 

It was a light load, just us and the dog.  It's not quite ready for a full load. We still have to build the bar, get the pinball machine back from the shop, add a shuffleboard table and multicade machine and a few other furniture items, and finish filling the walls with pictures and other fun stuff.

But we can stream hockey games and TV, listen  to music, play video games, craps, darts, card and board games... and drink. A good enough start!

Pinball and the arcade machine will go on the left side of the first picture. The craps table is at the end; we still have to put our cool Sharks lamp up over it. Sliding glass window on the right is the entry.

Shuffleboard will be on the left of second picture, the bar counter area on the right.  And the sharp eye will notice the nod to early dz.com Bonfire culture to the right of the TV. 

Third picture is the room before. The TV is now where the wall cabinets were. We removed the benches and cabinets, painted, put in new light fixtures,  added a circuit and some outlets, put down an additional layer of underfloor, laid flooring and did baseboards and door and window trim.

The sliding glass door on the right in that photo doesn't open; the fourth picture shows it's view. This is where the bar seating will be.

Although it is located in the outbuilding 150 feet from the house, its a fairly easy stumble to bed at the end of the evening.  Kinda like a prime camp spot at your favorite boogie.

Overall we are pretty happy with our new hangout.  C'mon by (with mask), the beer light is on!

Ok, I can really see how you saw a game room there. That looks awesome! And it’s not like you’ve had nothing to keep you busy or anything...

Like most nylon poisoned individuals would, we saw a loft first. It took a while to decide the smaller room in the building would hold sewing machines just fine. btw, anyone need a harness machine or two?

It has been and hopefully will continue to be a good distraction from my ongoing parental drama. Retail therapy ftw. :D
