Very cool setup, I like the separate TV's for Sega & Nintendo systems. And the urinal is great. I'm a single guy, I need to put one in my house.

The urinal is the mastertouch. Makes your place feel like a fine drinking establishment.

This is my dream basement, seriously, this is almost PERFECT!

I especially love how simple it looks. I can't tell where exactly the games are located, but I would prefer they had more exposer, but that could kill the simplistic look. So, I dunno.

Is that Urinal actually the kind with the IR sensor? Awesome! No game room is complete without that!

Looks great sir. I'm not a sports fan but I dig the bleacher bench. :mrgreen:

I'd suggest getting something waterproof set up around that urinal though. I had friends in school that were renting a house that someone had put a urinal in. No matter if it is all your friends being careful, accidents will happen or someone will think it is funny to throw crap at the person taking a leak. You don't want spots on the back of that sheetrock. :lol:

Is that ice in your urinal? I see that at the bar I got to all the time to play darts. I always thought they were just dumping excess ice in there because they were too laze to carry it 3 more steps outside. Is there something more to it I am not aware of. Also, love that the man's bathroom is also the cat's bathroom. I have been there. Charge your friends to use the bathroom, make them scoop the litter first.

You need to invite me over King. Your parlor looks great.

Back in the day, a urinal was basically a trough with a drain at the bottom. Ice was poured in the trough. When men peed in the old-fashioned urinal, some of the ice would melt thereby rinsing the urine down the drain. It was sort of a low-tech "flush" mechanism.

thanks for all the kind words guys.

To answer a couple questions, I did all the work myself other than the carpet. I sprayed the ceiling with a paint sprayer. Very messy, so that was done before most things. I really like the look and keeps things nice, open and big.

here is what it looked like when I started, from where the bar is now looking back at the poker/arcade area.

I know someone voiced concerns over flooding and believe me I had that issue at my old house, so much so that I couldn't sleep well when it rained, but I'm pretty confident I shouldn't have issues here. The house is only 10 years old and there's really no excuse for newer basements to leak, etc. I have a sump pump that even in the heaviest storms really doesn't run much and the grade outside is setup right. Saying all that I do have a rider on my insurance for the issue, but I don't expect any issues.
