    I used to have a living room that was similarly equipped - before I re-married...

    Yeah, they were , um... "challenging"...

    When the house was built, no thought was given to where the HVA ran, since finishing the basement wasn't in the plans for the previous owners...

    I pretty much had the same problem here. When the house was originally built, I think the basement was only meant for utilities and storage. As a result, between the I-beams, poles, HVAC ducting and 94" clearance between slab and joists, I had lots of compromises to make and wall positions and room shapes were partially dictated to me.

    I was determined, for one thing, not to have any exposed infrastructure - especially the poles. So, there are some lower ceilings where the beams and HVAC run and all poles are hidden in walls. When I finish this last room - I'll show some shots of the other rooms.

    Oh, decisions, decisions.... I have payed drums a lot longer than I have played guitar and quite a bit longer than I have been enjoying adult beverages...

    So, I'm torn. How about building a bar around the drum set?

    Great Project!
    When we built our new house the Family got a pool, I got THIS:



    16x25 music room - I can keep my drums and PA set up and I'm on 2.5 acres with no neighbors on 3 sides - Full VOLUME band practice 24/7! Well.... As long as it's cool with the wife! LOL!!!

    We'll have some cool man-cave items at the Experience this year. Stop by the T shirt tent and check out the new stuff.

    I'd love to have one of the posters for my music room! Maybe they will add them back to the store?
