6 Months and untold hours of labor later! (56k go roll a joint) - 01-03-2014, 05:46 PM

I see I can only have 10 IMG's per post....so I just linked the construction pics if you want to see and left the table pics tagged.

Well, as I said in my intro thread last week, I've been out of 'the pool' so-to-speak for almost 20 years..... I was planning an addition to my place of business, and decided thius was a golden opportunity to make the addition a little bigger and add a pool room (the fringe benefit and still a tax deduction). The entire addition was 1200sq ft, making my facility just a touch over 5000sq ft of usable space.... I had the concrete already, it was a huge loading dock....I had no use for a loading dock that large, so why not put some building over it, which I can use.... I hired a crew of Mennonites to put the shell up, as working alone, I couldnt have it done as fast, and with the building opened up like that.....they had the shell up in 6 days. Anyway, here we go!!

The facing torn off the south and east sides of the building:

Framing the new exterior walls:

http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_4515.JPG

http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_4539.JPG

Trusses arrived

trusses being set

http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_4574.JPG

Framing done and roof going on
http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_4574.JPG

No need for that 7' exterior door between 2 interior rooms, so it got removed and relocated to a different exterior location
http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_4609.JPG

They're just about done...
http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_4622.JPG

http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_4621.JPG

Here's where that 7' door got placed:
http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_4633.JPG

....and done.... I took over construction after this.

Railings and some steps:

http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_4670.JPG

http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_4687.JPG

I added some porch lights

With the walls crammed full of R-19 insulation, drywall time came....ceiling first

http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_5020.JPG

The holy grail of drywalling a ceiling
http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_5022.JPG

http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_5023.JPG

http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_5035.JPG

yours truly from the back side....I dont post pics of myself online....but if someone really wants to look at this one, I'd have to wonder!!
http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_5050.JPG

ceilings done
http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_5071.JPG

now for the walls, and another load of drywall...

http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_5100.JPG

http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_5158.JPG

http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_5159.JPG

then came my most hated task in construction....taping and mudding...

http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_5172.JPG

http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_5173.JPG

sanded
http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_5193.JPG

http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_5194.JPG

Textured the ceiling
http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_5197.JPG

http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_5190.JPG

another task I'm not overly fond of....painting..

http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_5233.JPG

http://www.zmods.org/images/shop_rem.../shop_5235.JPG

Now for the flooring













now the part you've all been waiting for!!!









I will be adding some track lighting with some smaller LED floods to light the table better. I will have a TV between the two windows soon.....the last thing I want is the view of a football game obscured from the the other side of the room by some obnoxiously big table light.....just never liked them anyway.

I know I'm the renegade anyway, I already caught hell for my non-standard cloth color....but after playing on it a couple days, I really do like it. Blue chalk isn't too bad on it....the red chalk was really bad. I did find some wine/burgundy colored chalk, I'll see what that looks like....but blue didn't make as big of a mess as I thought it would. it cleans up easily with a vacuum.

Now to get my game back......I am playing embarrassingly poor....but improving with every game. I will also be refinishing the wood skirts on the table. The table was originally blue....then red....then someone painted it brown..... I'll strip them and redo them natural.

That's all for now....thanks for stopping by.


If you tolerate this, then your children will be next.

I'm sure there's more to be said, but all I can think of is... it must be nice.

Wow that's awesome. Great job. And it looks like you had every detail planned out for the table before you even began.

I know I'm the outcast for the color.....but I honestly like it very much. It's brand new Simonis 860, just installed the other day by the table mechanic. When it wears out, I'll definitely replace it then.....probably with tournament blue....but it has a lot of pool to still be played on it. I addressed the lighting situation above....

I did. I actually had the table bought before construction even started. the room was built around the table. the room dimensions are 22x22. The tile floor was also tailored for the table.

Appreciate the compliments!! The table was the final step in what was a long grueling processes.

I know what you mean about the remodeling process. When Cindy decided to have a kitchen remodel, I packed my bags and my cue case, telling her to call me when it's over.

I had a pretty good time exploring the byways of the west. AND..we were still married when the kitchen was done. Experience from another remodel time convinced me that may not have been the case if I'd stayed.

I actually really enjoy this kind of work. It was hard work, but it was a great learning experience and created a really cool sense of pride knowing that I built it.

My wife and I are looking to build a new house in about 5 years....I have to save cash again....I paid cash for all this, and I will when I build the house too.....I don't like making payments. It took me about 2yrs to save for this task.....but this is attached to my shop/garage/toy box/ultimate mancave.... Building a house might prove to be more of a strain on my marriage....LOL....so I'll keep your scenario in mind!

The room looks great! I can't tell for sure...but it looks line you used 1/2 board on the ceiling.... Ceiling board has purple paper on the ends and is 7/16ths thick and is a must when ceiling framing is two foot on center even if the boards are on flats.
Hope all is well.

Great looking place'

That's one great looking spot--that tile floor is a great job--know what I'm talking about--my family was in the biz for 60 years--as above--don't let the balls hit that tile--it'll crack
