“So here’s where we started – a room under our house which we called “The Dungeon”. Full of junk left over after moving in. We left it like this for nearly a year while deciding what to do with the room.”

“We wanted to make it feel like you weren’t in a basement and wanted the flooring to be durable, so we went with fake grass. We both play golf so it made the room a bit cooler for us a the same time.”

In particular we love using it for our regular Game Of Thrones nights…which by the way…”
