So the build plans include a room at the front of the house, that I plan to install a nice home bar in. The room is rectangular, and the bar will be along the back length wall. The front length wall is an exterior wall, and will have double French doors that will exit onto the front courtyard, which will have a fountain feature and a nice outdoor (gas) fireplace.

I do not need/want wine storage, which so many pre-made home bars I'm finding have. Let's see pictures of your home bars for ideas.

Are you thinking of making one on your own/having one made, as opposed to a pre-fab/furniture piece?

Good question. That Cribs pic I liked, I'm only stealing the recessed fireplace under flatscreen with side built ins for art display on top and AV equip on the bottom. I am not going for the rest of that package, although it does look very sleek and Miami Vice.

We will not be completely traditional, but we won't be ultra modern either. I can't even decide on what to do for the counter top of the bar. Matching granite from the kitchen? Wood? Some of the more contemporary art glass bar tops I am seeing?

Facing the bar, will be a set of double French doors, the flow out to our front courtyard. I don't want ultra-mod coloured diode mood lighting, but nicely done lighting on the bar, might look killer from the courtyard. I need to post a pic of the house floor plan one of these days. Anyone know a good free program to convert pdf into jpg or something else photobucket will host?

If you have full Acrobat (not reader) you can export to TIFF or BMP. From there, open it in any of the windows image viewers/editors and you can re-save as a JPG

You could also try the "Print to image" option or the MS Image Writer but they don't work so well.

You might just want to open the PDF and hit ALT+PRINTSCREEN and then paste that into MS Paint and save as a JPG
