I posted on here a few weeks back for some suggestions for a door at the bottom of my basement stairs. I settled on a French style double door and finally have the drywallers coming to mud and texture next week. The last issue I'm dealing with is a support pole somewhat in the middle of the room. The room is about 25' x 20' and the pole is about 4' in from one wall and about centered on the 25' run. Eventually I will be building a bar that will be in the location (the pole will be encased by the bar so you will only see the top 3' or so). Any suggestions on how to finish around it? Do people typically just frame a stud on 2 sides and hang drywall or would a better idea be to encase it with wood to match the trim?
