The brief from our client:
- To build an outside bar within the confines of an attractive bespoke shed, which could also house BBQ equipment when not in use.
- The bespoke shed should fit neatly into the garden and not stand out too much.
- A fold-away table should be incorporated, to allow food and drinks to be served.
We constructed the shed using shiplap softwood treated timber. Bearing in mind the requirement for it to fit neatly into the garden and not stand out too much, the shed was constructed to be fairly small – 2 metres wide and 1.2 deep, and sits snug to the fence. Shelves were built to hold those all important bottles and BBQ equipment, not only along the walls of the shed but also on the inside of the doors to maximise storage space.
Our client, who was away for most of the build, was very happy on their return to see the completed bar, and call it shed envy but I’m now tempted to find a space in my garden to build one too!
