Jamie Gough has kindly shared some photographs from his snooker room construction for us to enjoy.

Foundation and concrete slab preparation work

It never ceases to amaze me how small the snooker rooms look before they are built. At least you get an idea of scale from the wheelbarrows standing there. The area at this stage looks nice and flat, not sure if it was that way at the start!

Foundation and concrete slab prep. work.

Here we can see how close the project is to the boundary and how deep it needed to go to get that solid slab in place ready for a structure to sit on top.
Looks like a small channel at the front for the electrical supply.

Materials

This looks like the materials are ready for the timber framed sections (cls timber) and the external cladding.

Timber framed building

This is quite a nice picture showing the start of the building construction. We can clearly see how the timber has been put together with the external wood cladding.

Timber framed building

Starting to take a bit of shape now. Looks like 6×2 roof rafters spanning the sides; it would be interesting to know what is the maximum length you can take them before sagging occurs? Nice sloping roof though so no trouble with water!

Here we get another view of the timber construction. The build looks pretty straight forward at this point; and the weather!

We get a better view of the roof joists here and they look a little more substantial than in the other picture.

This is a great angle to see how tight the building is within its surroundings. There’s not a lot of room here for mistakes or to manoeuvre around as soon as you get to the roof level. See the way the roof joists are butted in at the lower end?

The building is really taking shape now and nearly weatherproof. Windows on their way in and I guess the table may be going in the middle by the looks of the wooden frame on the floor.

Roofing

Nice to see marine ply being used for the roof. You know that’s going to have a great chance of keeping the room dry if the roof gets a leak after a few years.

Insulation and Vapour Barrier.

You can’t really see if from this angle but the vapour barrier would probably wrap the stud work to protect from moisture to the internal construction. Looks like a standard lagging between the studs. It may not be Celotex but this insulation definitely won’t move unless wet. Without any insulation I can’t see anyone venturing out for a game in the winter and the room would probably be too hot in the summer without it.

Plastering

The whole of the internal space has been plastered and ready to dry before painting.

UPVC door fitted to the stud frame and all outside cladding finished on this face.

External Cladding

As we can see here the cladding has been completed with all window areas ready; nearly there!

Finishing off

Well the builds really moved on here with the room decorated, carpeted, wired and now the base of the table making an appearance. The tv is up and running before the table so this may slow down the completion, it certainly would with me!

Table set-up

Well here goes the table set-up. A nice new cloth and slate in place, I would probably have to go out for the day or the day would drag whilst waiting.

The room is already starting to look beautiful and like it’s been there for a while, what a great set up.

Decent cue rack installed and I think that might be a cue case making an appearance ready for the off.

Table set-up

What a beautiful table. I love it when you see a nice green baize let alone when it is in a brand new building. What a superb set up.

Job Done! So there you have it, another completed snooker room. Thanks to Jamie Gough for sharing his project and now we can all sit back and be green with envy again. Check out the other snooker room builds on the blog section of the Snooker Crazy Website.

Now that’s a snooker room to be proud of and a great achievement. Most of us dream of something like this but even if the opportunity arises the whole task seems enormous. Well done Jamie!

Many times I have considered building a snooker room and this type of build really does look achievable no matter which country you are in. If you want to save money, you could certainly do a lot of the work for yourself if you have the skills and if you’re looking for a weekend thing, this will certainly reap rewards at the end of the project.

Hopefully more people will share their snooker room builds with us and we will keep posting them on Snooker Crazy.

Good stuff Jamie!
