The Dog House not only acts as a pub, it also turns into a brewery; double bedroom and a recording studio. Instead of buying in beer for stocking up the bar, I brew it myself, in The Dog House. All home brewing equipment Is hidden away in confined storage spaces within the pub and is easily accessed when required. The Dog House also converts effortlessly into a double bedroom with a slight rearrangement of the horseshoe seating area. The Dog House boasts Wi-Fi internet access, ice machine;draught beer; novelty fridge and an integrated sound system. When not in pub; brewery or bedroom mode The Dog House finally acts as my very own recording studio. I have an array of stringed instruments hanging from the wall, all of which can be hooked up to the PC behind the bar for recording or jamming along to. The exterior sports a beer garden complete with decked seating area and a bespoke beer Barrel Bench, made out of 2 beer barrels, for the punters that require the occasional breath of fresh air. Finally there is a homemade wood fired oven that has been recently added to the beer garden for those nights where a hog roast or a 12"pizza is required for the hungry masses.
The shed originally was a standard 3m x 2.5m timber shed with concrete floor. In order to achieve my Dog House vision I took off the gable end of the shed where the original doors were and extended it out by a further 1.2m to accommodate the seating area. Rebuilt the extension with the inclusion of a double glazed window, the side of the shed was cut out to incorporate the new entrance, using the original doors. The interior was wired up for electrical sockets;lighting and speaker wire with the installation of a consumer unit hidden within the seating bench. Walls were insulated; plaster boarded; papered and painted. The floor and ceiling where also insulated. Seating bench and bar built with timber framing, cladded; beaded and varnished.
