My Putting Green Build

After seeing everyone on here building putting greens, I decided to do my own. We had a crawl space that had approx 10 foot ceiling clearance (our house is on a hill). I would've preferred the builder poured concrete so I could've turned it into a man cave but we bought it right before the house was completed. Aside from the putting green and chipping area (14'x16'), I build the same type platform for storage (area pictures are taken from) that is 16'x8' that I built last year right after we moved in. I kinda just winged it but it turned out pretty well. Only thing I don't like is the carpet I used wasn't wide enough so I had to add 1' strips length wise on each side...it only affects a couple cups that are closest to the chipping area. I'll probably buy different turf next year to lay over top so there will be no seams and to help cushion chipping. I added 2 underlayments under the putting turf. The chipping fairway is just AstroTurf from Lowes but I have some better rough and fairway I ordered from Home Depot that I was going to screw in chip off.

    I'm a little bit lost? what is the ceiling height?



    I love the idea and the use of the space. a true man cave.. are you wanting to add drywall or something to finish the walls and ceiling?

    The finished height after the putting green is 8ft. It was over 10 before but it was sloped and I didn't want to remove dirt around a couple footings or it would've been taller. The man cave comment was referring to if the building actually poured concrete and I could've finished it into a man cave tv room.
