Building house - 03-24-2019, 09:18 PM

They will be breaking ground in the next 3 weeks on my new house. I have a 9ft GC in my current basement and a 10ft GC billiard table in storage. I wanted to have a room in the new house where I could have them both with no poles. After some work with an engineer and increasing I beam / joist sizes, I will have enough room for both tables as well as seating / couches / tables and a kitchen area. The attached image is the section of basement dedicated to pool room. Just playing with layouts at this point. No obstructions and 10ft ceiling. Hope to be finished with house around thanksgiving.

As I understand it, 10ft is tall enough to swing a driver, so I might have to get a simulator on the other side of basement.

Ian...That's a great set-up you're going to have. How long will the construction take? Pool parties at your house are going to be a blast!

Awesome.

And not that you asked or needed, more for those contemplating dual+ home table setups...

Tables can be closer to each other that they can be to a wall.

Put a bar box in too?!

One of the best things you can do is insulate every spot possible, forget code, you want better.

I have built a few homes, every single one of them is insulated far beyond code. Some builders thought it was a waste of money, I proved them wrong. Tap on any wall and it sounds solid instead of hollow.

Between floors? Yes sir, not required but it sure is nice.

Every single interior wall? Yes sir, the added silence is golden.

Talk to the insulation subcontractor if you can, the additional cost will surprise you, it's not that much.

Good luck, it should turn out fantastic.

Great plan for a room. One room in my basement has 1000 sq ft (43' x 23') with 10' ceilings and no poles. I don't think you can overstate how great it is having that much room. There are never any arguments when my wife wants to watch cooking shows or talent competitions in the family room.

You are going to have a tough time waiting until Thanksgiving.

Great advice here! I'm jealous when I read this thread. I live out West where there are no basements in houses. I had to appropriate my living room (16x20) and make a poolroom out of it. The wife came later!

Thanks for the feedback guys.

I never thought about the additional insulation. I think I will discuss with my builder on our next meeting.

When you say move the tables closer, what is a comfortable distance apart? I guess I could go to the pool hall and measure?

I also thought about going end to end?

Yes it going to be an anxious summer!

Ian

I know you were talking about a golf simulator but that 9x12 area (estimating) below the table and chairs looks like it would be big enough for a small half bath and if you plum that, you can add a wet bar beside it.


Anyway....it looks great

Yes I was thinking about the bar / kitchen in the nook as you described.

There will be a full bath on the other side of basement.

Looks like a solid plan and a great room. I know most of us are just salivating over an invite to check out the finished product. Good luck with the home build. I hope it comes in to plan, on time, and under budget.
