Part of the challenge in creating spaces in basements is designing around existing ductwork, plumbing pipes and structural beams.  This particular project houses all three–can you tell where? These homeowners wanted a large and inviting entertaining space. Using maple hardwood and creative design, a bar is born!  The columns and ceiling treatment mask those necessary but inconvenient obstacles.
