me and a buddy are getting a house here soon and are trying to figure out where we can get a table in.I'm sure we'll have to add on a room for it. Long ago I found a site that had what a good size for a room is for different sized tables, but I can't find it now! So if anyone has a link or just happens to know please let me know what size the room should be to shoot comfortably. (I plan on getting a 4X8)

Hi there,
18' x 14"-go under www.bca-pool.com (http://www.bca-pool.com) under equipment then room size!
Good luck!

Figure an 8' x 4' playing surface + 6" of rail, 59" of cue and 12" of stroke and you're at 14'5" x 18'5". Now you'll have to leave room for the wet bar, hot tub, big screen tv and entertainment center as well, so why not just take up the whole basement? /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

part of a building below ground level under your house. It's usually the same square footage of your whole house without the walls

You can never have a room too big. Add about 5' around each side of the table and that is just for the table. You don't want to have to use no short stick. Then figure your sitting and what ever else you want to add to your room. I have a 4 x 8 table and my room is 14'6' X 19'6". It is big enough but I sure wish I had a couple more feet all the way around. It gets crowded quick. Just a thought - Joel

So I'm REALLY considering getting a table, but am having problems with the room and my feelings about using a short stick, etc.

The room is 14'5" X 15' and I want a 9' X 4'5" table.

Two of the walls are open and there are rooms open rooms on the other side. So there will really be only one problem area. What do you guys thing? Scrap the idea?

If that corner you have pictured is a load bearing wall, you could always have an I-beam installed. The cost depends on the total span. It would be expensive and would depend on what is around it. If it is in a basement, it would be easiest as you could pour concrete supports for the beam. Needless to say, this might be going overboard.
