project update; rathskeller progress

February 29, 2012

What are you doing with your Leap Day today?

If you had your very own rathskeller, you might think of spending the day down there cuddled on a comfy sofa with a blanket and a pint and perhaps a movie! A ‘rathskeller’ is the German word for a bar or restaurant located in a basement or lower level… well we are in the midst of designing and building one of these delightful in-home pubs for some of our lovely clients!

Take a look at some of the progress…

It all started with an idea, and then a drawing... here our drawing shows the wall of the stairs and the door to the wine cellar. It shows horizontal plank paneling along with a custom built-in tufted bench.

Here the guys are working on the ax-hewn posts that will find their new home as support posts in the family's new lower level rathskeller.

Top: Ax-hewn posts in waiting. Middle: A close up 'beauty shot' of the aged and labored wood. Bottom: One of the posts installed under the barrel vault with a peek-a-boo shot into the wine cellar.

In progress! The space is on its way to be something spectacular!
