The inspiration for this site came back in the 1970’s from nostalgic basement bars found in the upper Midwest. At the time, almost everyone had a home bar. After purchasing my first home in the late 90’s and searching the early internet but finding nothing, I developed my own rough plans that evolved into illustrated CAD drawings. In 1996 the first PDF based plans were released online. These plans have been here ever since.
Bar Construction Community:
Since then, Barplan.com has evolved into a community of over 50,000 home bar enthusiasts worldwide. Today the web is awash with photos featuring home bar and pub projects, many inspired by these very designs. Regardless, we strive to keep offering the best value and plans. Occasionally new designs are added to the collection. At Barplan.com “You Always Get More Bar for Your Buck”. The current bundled plans package give you over a dozen plans that boils down to about two dollars per plan set.
If you’d like to see examples of projects built by members, check out the Home Bar Photos area. Check out more projects on our Facebook page. Feel free to share your project photos with the world. Watch the Bar Tour Videos to see even more of the awesome projects always coming from our member’s basements, garages and workshops.
Providing affordable plans for a home bar may seem like our primary goal, but there’s a lot more. Each year, thousands of people die needlessly on our roads due to drinking and driving. We strive to encourage people to drink safely at home and hopefully save a few lives.
We continue to improve the membership site and develop new projects. When you join our site, you’ll find you get much more than you expected, which is my personal promise to you. We have had a BBB rating of A+ for over 10 years, but recently ended that program since social networks and business reviews abound.
We humbly consider our site the as “The Home Bar Authority” and we’re dedicated to give you the absolute best deal and the easiest to build projects you will find on the web for twenty bones.
The Royal We:
When you hear “we” it means myself and two others, one part time. “We” are not a big stuffy corporation, just a small digital publishing service. We are also NOT related in any way to those Click Bank “10,000+ woodworking plans” sites.
The Barplan.com site is hosted on powerful web server to deliver fast downloads and reliable access to forums and gallery.
Thanks and Have Fun!
