DIY Basement Bar


Been working on this for better part of a year, the bar as well as the entire basement, would love to hear any feedback or questions you may have... cheers
P.s. I still need to finish the top and design the back bar...

What materials are you using? Counter top, wood, etc. Looks good.

Did you run any electrical under the bar itself?

Looks great. Personally I'd go granite on the bar and counters.

Thanks for taking a look guys... I'm gonna use granite for the back wet bar, and use hardwood maple with a Chicago rail for the bar top. Wanted that real bar feel. I didn't run any electric under the front bar, but I'm thinking I may run led lights under the bar over hang from the wall outlet. Thanks again for ur comments... cheers.

For code compliance reasons, you may need to provide some electric somewhere on that bar. The reason being, if you have people over for a football game (or whatever), crock-pots only have a 2' cord. Stretching extension cords to use those is frowned-upon. Or, a blender, or whatever else you might want to plug in on that bartop.

(I don't think there is any bleed-over from Reddit here, I just happen to follow /r/DIY over there).

Re: DIY Basement Bar


I believe your bar falls under the same requirements as would a kitchen island or peninsula:

Quote:
At least one receptacle outlet must be installed at each island countertop space with a long dimension of 2 ft or more and a short dimension of 1 ft or more [210.52(C)(2)]. At least one receptacle outlet must be installed at each peninsular countertop with a long dimension of 2 ft or more (and a short dimension of 1 ft or more), measured from the connecting edge [210.52(C)(3)].

No, he's fine.
The counter recept rule that your referencing is for kitchens. For it to be classified a "kitchen", he would need a sink, a food prep area, and a cooking appliance. Basically as long as he doesn't put a oven in...he's good. (I'm a journeyman electrician)
