A home built to fit your life

Custom Rustic Wisconsin Bar


Have we mentioned we love what we do?


Recently we worked with clients who relocated from New York City back to Madison and their Wisconsin roots. They asked us to build a bar in their finished basement. They had two main requirements: 1) They wanted it to have an authentic Northwoods feel, and 2) it needed to be complete by the second Packer game of the season.

We sketched an original concept for our clients and included custom matching soffit for the lighting above the bar. Upon approval, we sourced knotty pine from northern Wisconsin for the bottom of the bar and the soffit. We placed 3-inch, 4-inch and 5-inch pieces of hickory flooring in a random pattern for the top of the bar. The result was gorgeous and, with hickory’s reputation as a sturdy and stable wood, we know it will stand up to a lot of activity and entertaining.


Our client requested some special features such as a door monogrammed with the letter “Z”, a drink splash on the bar and built in shelves with space for two small refrigerators behind the bar.


The finished product is beautiful. It captures the sturdy, rustic quality of the Wisconsin Northwoods and is sure to hold up through many, many seasons of Packer football. What do our clients (who found through our website!) think about their new entertainment area? They are enjoying hosting friends and family. In their own words, “We love it. It more than meets our expectations!”











Thanks to our clients for the opportunity to work on such an enjoyable project. If you or someone you know is thinking about finishing your basement or adding an entertainment area, contact Home Comfort Company for a quote.
