Yes indeed a good job. Can't really comment on your first bid being high but it doesn't take much to eat up 25 grand these days. Seems high for 850 sqft though. Depends on what the plan was but that's almost 30 bucks a foot. There are too many variables to estimate from here but 20 is probably average....and it only took you 6 months.

I have friends come over every friday to shoot pool and drink beer
The wife picked out the colors and i did the woodwork and lettering.
the room had some existing woodwork that i just mached. the area behind the bar was a long hallway that seemed like wasted space.
so i closed of the entrance to the hallway and blew threw the wall to create the bar.
And i made the stools out of old pallets i found on the side of the road.

Have I mentioned I am SERIOUSLY jealous yet? I'm heading over with the smoker for the weekend OK?

Interested in my woodworking, workshop and whatnot? See http://daves-workshop.blogspot.com, want to see my other interests such as hunting, fishing, off roading, and camping? See http://wildersport-outdoors.blogspot.com
