I noticed the couch. Box it in place raised so your non players can enjoy the games. As for the walls, I'd make sure they don't reflect ball sounds back/forth, it's very annoying after hours of play. As for hard floors, my suggestion no. Is this room garden level?

Carpet is much nicer to play on for both the feet and the ears. He can always take up peasant hunting as needed.

What kind of flooring is that? I have seen "waterproof" engineered wood. I am still unsure of flooring. The house is very modern so I would prefer polished concrete. I had a table on bare concrete in a previous house so I am aware of the downsides. We shall see. Carpet would be most comfortable...

Thats a good point. At first I was only going to make the bottom half for my pool room. I have now decided to use the whole area in the second diagram. If I put the tables at the bottom, I will make a larger theater in the top portion. Maybe just a small tv in the bottom.

Its 5/8 thick engineered wood put down directly on the concrete with a heavy mastic adhesive product that is also a moisture barrier and able to act as a leveling compound for small deviations.

Have a suggestion. If you will use the pool table more, switch it with billiard table. Glad you get to have the dream man cave. Best of luck, houses take to build than planned, been there done that.

the home stretch now... Closing is scheduled for Nov 12th. I scheduled Jack and Todd for the 16th. The tables will be installed before I have my bed moved in. Priorities are in order.

If I'm ever in Organ I'll stop by and hit some balls with you. Every time I see a cool home table layout I want to immediately go there and play some pool. Meanwhile I have a nice Diamond table in my living room that rarely gets played on. Go figure.

I think I'll invite the AZ crowd to stop by whenever they are in HelLA.
So if any of you are in my neighborhood please contact me and we can play a little. No table time and free drinks! How can you beat it. You might even get to hear some inside pool stories that I can't put on here.

I've been in houses that look similar to yours. They never look as big from the street but once inside they can surprise you. I'm guessing your new home is over 3,000 square feet, not counting the basement. Am I close?

Great thread...I built a house last year and planned for a 10 foot gold crown and 9 foot diamond...worked out the spacing issues by going end to end. I also had issues with the beams. The architect was able to bump the center line of the house over 3 feet, to get a 16 foot x 40 foot alley to get the tables playable end to end with full sized cues from all angles...supposed to be 16.5 feet but I lost space with basement insulation code requirements.
Looking back, I should've spent the extra money to completely eliminate the need for beams like you did...but as with everything, there are compromises and budgets....had to work with them.
Good luck and can't wait to see the finished room.

2700 above grade with 2700 basement.

I am a big fan of the modern california houses. I tried to find a balance of modern but not looking too out of place in an Ohio neighborhood.

Thanks for sharing pics, I have a few questions for you if you don't mind.

1. What did you do to the floor? Is that stained concrete? It looks great.
2. My basement is unfinished as well and I plan on hanging LED panels from the floor joists as well. On the LED sites, I see pre-made hanging kits with wire and fittings. Did you use a pre-made hanging kit? Any other tips you can share? I have a feeling hanging the lights will be a bit tedious.
