Stunning!!! I don’t think there are any of us on AH that are not envious!!!For more than a year we have been working on our guest house/trophy room/gentlemen's club/ and now gun room. We are finished! At least till the next piece of preserved fauna appears.
The gun room was a real challenge. The guest house is a carriage house design sitting above the carport. So, pouring yards of reinforced concrete wasn't an option. Steel plate was also a concern due to total weight and the difficulty of constructing over it. With the advice of a security company, what we went with was the "Deadwood Jail" solution of building a steel cage - walls, ceiling, and floor. It won't stop a professional with a cherry picker, power tools, and a couple of hours of time (neither will my gun safe). But it will stop a couple of punks with thirty minutes and a crowbar. And hopefully, the security system will alert the sheriff before the pros are done.
I am really happy with the final product. I am no longer beating the hell out of fine rifles and guns trying to get them out of the safe, and I have a comfortable spot to clean them and enjoy them. And because it is adjacent to the trophy room, it makes looking over one or more an easy and fun thing when friends are out at the place.
And I think the design works well with the rest of the trophy room. I have posted pictures of it before, but it is now pretty much complete.
So, yes, all the woodwork was to design. The one feature we carried throughout were the hardwood sunken panels. They define the gunroom, the bar, the supporting beam, and the light boxes. That served to tie everything together.Very tastefully executed @Red Leg.
I was wondering about the gun room itself, I suppose all the cabinets/wood work were custom done per your exact wishes. Did you have any specific considerations when designing the cabinets/furniture/table ? Specific minimum sizes, width’s or lengths? Doors, instead of drawer’s?
