Home Remodeler Analysis

This was a great space for entertaining guests, and it provided us with the room necessary to deliver a full basement remodel. We also noted that the ceiling texture would present a challenge with the sound system.

The Client’s Goals

To remodel the space for an enhanced entertainment experience. They wanted a “throwback” look for the bar along with a new sound system.

Remodeler Approach

We used barn materials for much of this build, including barn wood (from a barn in Faribault, MN) and galvanized steel panels (from a barn in St. Cloud, MN). We also installed an artisan 3D multi-color barn wood accent wall. Other installations included NST Porcelain Plank Tile Flooring, a Brizo Wall Mount Bar Faucet, and a brick-style façade for the bar area.


The primary challenge, which we anticipated, was installing a sound system without replacing/updating the ceiling texture. We overcame this challenge by feeding the sound wiring from the basement’s mechanical space.

Another challenge was in the speaker and TV installation. We wanted a set-up that would be easy to access for the client in case of maintenance needs. To overcome this challenge, we built a faux wall with recessed space for the TV and speaker boxes which would be accessible from the mechanical room.

Challenges of the Remodel

One challenge, in particular, that’s worth noting: uneven subflooring. Uneven floors in kitchens can be especially hazardous for homeowners and can affect home value. The subflooring was fixed by pouring the floor leveler prior to installing the new LVT flooring.
