Dad transforms damp cellar into his own PUB that can fit 30 pals for £2,500

A DAD has transformed his damp cellar into a pub for a dirt-cheap £2,500 – and it comes complete with a beer pump, fridges and a TV and can fit 30 people.

Adam Cone, from Sheffield, spent nine months creating the stunning underground bar in his home which hosts family film nights, quizzes, poker nights, football matches, and even birthday parties.

The 34-year-old said 80 percent of the materials he used were second-hand and that the total project cost him £2,500 – including a double fridge, a beer pump, lighting and some of the other fixtures and fittings.

Adam, an excavator operator, added: “It was a wasted space that was full of damp. It wasn’t useful for storage because things would get ruined.

“We enjoy having family and friends around at our house so it made sense to make something to host guests but also a clean and cosy place for the family to spend time.

“I’d say the bar has a rustic and cosy atmosphere with a mix of traditional and industrial elements.

“I used a lot of timber that I got from work, old pallets and items that I found on the Facebook marketplace.

“All the tiles were free and other bits we used were extremely cheap, such as the door and flooring which we got from Facebook.

“Other people chipped in to help us out too. My friend’s dad upholstered the corner seat and my mother in law upholstered the chairs for us.

“My dad helped with digging out the floor which had to go down nearly two-foot because we needed to gain enough headroom to stand up as I’m 6ft 4inches.

“The children were there to help too. My son and eldest daughter carried bricks out from the original floor to be recycled into a new patio outside.

“And a few friends also helped get the concrete in to make the new concrete slab for the floor.”

Adam says that he has always been a DIY man and used his skills to get the project done.

However, he also learnt new tricks such as how to source materials for dirt cheap as he usually buys without looking at the price.

Adam said: “The bar has given us a brilliant family room where we have already enjoyed numerous birthday parties, film nights, game nights and family quizzes without even leaving the house.

“It also saves on the babysitters because when the children are in bed and asleep, it allows us to continue the night with family and friends knowing that the children are safe.

“My son, Joseph, had part of his birthday party down there last week and Ruth, my wife, had hers in there over Christmas with about 30 guests down in there at the same time!.”
