Default Richard's Cave

Back in November I got a contract accepted on a new place. It was a short sale so lots of waiting involved. On Friday we got final approval from banks and the investor/insurance folks so we are moving into the normal closing part of the sale. Right now it looks like probably will be doing the inspection on Wednesday.

I've hesitated to post this up until now because I wasn't sure if we'd get the place. Now, unless inspection goes like shit, I'm pretty sure we'll be moving in soon.

I'll post some pics of the future cave below. Ideas appreciated from you guys.

Budget is not going to be very high unfortunately. So while I'd love to throw in a projector and 100 bajillion inch screen, it's probably out of the picture.

What I would like is create a "game room" which will have my prior projects I've posted on the forum, and then slowly add some more stuff to it and maybe redo the bar. I'd also like to redo the floor with something nicer than the worn out zero cushion carpet that's in there now. The current stuff looks like the cheapest office carpet you could buy. For current game room stuff I've got my round table, which I'd like to build a topper for, the arcade cabinet, jukebox, and I'm starting work on a driving rig which will be made out of PVC with a real car seat. See this for an example of what I mean. I've got the computer already, steering wheel, pedals, and shifter. I've got a foosball table too, which never, and I mean never gets used. Biggest waste of space. I'd also like to add a dart board if possible somewhere, not sure if there's a place for it.

I will most likely be buying a new TV for the family room, and moving my old 40" samsung downstairs to the cave. The current 32" LCD I have in my basement now I might re-use somewhere in basement on wall for a poker clock / second tv for watching sports during poker games. What I'd LOVE is to go buy 3x 32" TVs since they're so cheap now, and wire it up so I had them on the walls around the room for poker clock / watching sports. It would be great to have multiple tv's available for tournaments. I'd like to be able to also bring in an oval table with folding legs on occasion for two table tourneys. That might not be in the immediate budget but it's on my mind so I'd like to factor that into the plans.

MSpaint style floorplan


The hallway where the bathroom is continues into the storage/utilities area.

Some pics from my second walk through of the place:







Utility area - these double doors are right next to the stairs. I think the foosball table will go in front of these doors next to the stairs.



Looking back towards the utility closet area from where the wood stove is


No frills Bar - I'd like to eventually remove this. Not sure to replace or what.



Anyone have any idea what the hell this is? Looks like some kind of audio patch panel or something? You can also see this in pic 1 for an idea of where it is in the room.


Is this a doorbell speaker?


Thoughts and ideas appreciated guys.

Near the ceiling looks like an old doorbell ringer
Not sure on the multi-plug box, almost looks like something for a band
40" TV may be small for down there depending upon distance to the TV
We had a 42" TV as out main TV & finally upgraded to a 55"
Depends upon how much time you will spend down there watching TV

Maybe Trann can come in here and offer something serious.

I wish I had brought a tape measure when I took these pictures to get actual dimensions of the space. I'll try to get them on Wednesday when I am there for the inspection.

I wonder if the round table I have is going to take up too much space. The pole in the middle of the room is unfortunate. I wish it wasn't there.
