My Shed of the Month
This months Shed is the 3 Steps Bar , Ayrshire Owned by sheddie Garry Garry has been a vocal member or readersheds for a few years and his Pub shed is a great commmunity place for him and his mates and family. Good luck to Garry and all the sheddies for Shed of the year 2013
I chose a shed as it was an affordable means of building my own pub, Ideallly I would love to build an an extension for an outside toilet but it would have to be plumbed in as I don't fancy having a portaloo and having to slop out with a hangover after a night in the shed.
2) any tips for new sheddies
Advice I would give to someone building a pub shed is not to use rockwool insulation as if there are any stray nails the rockwool absorbs moisture and as I've lined my shed with mdf I've had to repair a few damp patches. Carpet tiles are ideal as they can be easily replaced and are cheap to buy. eBay is a great place to get pub items..
4) Bit about yourself if you want.
I'm 36 married and dad to Dylan who's 7, enjoy drinking in my shed listening to oasis and watching football.
My bars been open now for three years and it actually feels like a proper pub with the lads calling it their "local" if I were to do anything different I would have bought a larger shed as there's so much more I want to do but just don't have the room.
We have a pub flag that has been on our travels around Europe and the walls in the shed are covered with photos of the regulars holding the flag up. I have a friend serving in Afghanistan and I'm posting the flag over there to get a photo of the troops with it.
We have a charity tin on the bar collecting for clic Sargent a local charity for kids with cancer. Our last tin raised £211 for the local hospice.
I've used loft board flooring as the hut floor had a springy feel. I spend an hour every Sunday cleaning the shed, hoovering, empty the bin, wash down the bar etc, lol more often than not its with a hangover.
As far as pub shed go I think the 3 steps is the best (I've got to say it) it's a standard 10x8ft shed from the outside and when u walk in it looks and feels like a proper old boozer complete with 10 pack fags for sale (I bought them so its just a £3 donation into the charity tin) peanuts, cold beers and live football on the tv. The shed opens the first sat in march and closes the last in oct.
I've spent well over £2500 so far and I've reached the point where there's no room to do anything else.See more photos
