Wet bar rough in

laura1202June 20, 2006

We had our final walk though with our builder last week and everything loooks pretty good. Of course there are some things that need to be repaired/replaced but basically we were pleased. One thing that did not make me happy, though was the rough in for the wet bar in the basement. This is in a finished area and the pipes are just sticking out of the wall. No....I don't think so. We won't be putting in a wet bar (or whatever) any time soon, so I can't have this looking like this until we do. If it was in an unfinished area, it wouldn't matter....but it's not. What can I have them do to make this look better (besides repaint around the pipes, that's a given) some type of cover, build a box over it or ?? They said the pipes could not be cut down any more.

Thanks for any suggestions/advice.

P.S. I cross posted this in the Building a Home forum.

That's actually a good looking rough-in.
You do not want them to cut the pipe any shorter or even flush with the finished surfaces because that would involve re-working the dry wall when it's time.

I'll say just paint around it and maybe put a planter or two in the meantime.
