Dad turns an unused basement into a rustic bar

A father has transformed his previously damp and unused basement into a rustic bar that can seat up to 30 guests.

Adam Cone spent nine months creating a stunning underground bar in his home that hosts family movie nights, trivia nights, poker nights, soccer games and even family birthday parties.

The 34-year-old says 80 per cent of the materials he uses have been recycled and the whole project cost him £2,500, including a double fridge, beer pump, lighting and some of the other fittings he couldn’t get for free.

Adam, an excavator operator, added: “It was a wasted space filled with moisture. He wasn’t suitable for storage because things would be ruined.

“We enjoy having family and friends in our home so it made sense to create something to host guests but also a clean and comfortable place for the family to spend time.

“I would say the bar has a rustic and cozy vibe with a mix of traditional and industrial elements.

“I used a lot of wood I got from work, old pallets and items I found on Facebook Marketplace.

“All the tiles were free and other parts we used were extremely cheap like the door and flooring we got from Facebook.

“Other people also pitched in to help us. My girlfriend’s father upholstered the corner bench and my mother-in-law upholstered the chairs for us.

“My dad helped dig the ground, which had to go down almost two feet because we needed to gain enough headroom to stand up since I’m 6ft 4″ tall.”

David involves his children and friends in the project, who help carry materials and do other work on the transformation.

But the father has always been a keen DIY enthusiast and says his interest in the end result has paid off.

“The children were also there to help. My son and eldest daughter carried bricks from the original floor to recycle for a new patio outside.

“And some friends also helped pour in the concrete to make the new concrete slab for the floor.”

Adam says he has always been a keen DIY enthusiast and used the skills he had to complete the project.

However, he has also learned some new techniques, such as how to get materials as cheaply as possible, because he admits that he is usually someone who just buys without looking at the price.

His frugal approach and DIY ethos mean he’s saved money and in return created a space for his family to enjoy.

The move has saved him and his wife money on babysitting since they don’t have to leave home.

Adam said: “The bar has given us a brilliant family space where we have enjoyed numerous birthday parties, movie nights, game nights and family quizzes without leaving the house.

“It saves on the babysitters too, because when the kids are in bed and asleep, we can continue the night with family and friends, knowing the kids are safe.”

“My son Joseph had part of his birthday party down there last week and Ruth my wife had hers there over Christmas with about 30 guests at a time!”
