The Purple Shack is a multi use shed used as storage and a summerhouse for most of the time but then on occasion very quickly turned into an entertainment venue that can seat almost 20 people in comfort on fold up bench seating and with a working bar. Everything can be hidden away and used for alternative purposes reducing storage requirements and clutter. As most projects do the Purple Shack began as a simple idea but then began to run away with us when the vision of a beach shack took hold. We have loved every minute of this project and have had so much fun trying to create our own piece of paradise. Nothing gives us greater pleasure than inviting friends around for a few drinks in our own little piece of the Caribbean.
The shed has full power for lighting and heating and a working aerial. Everything is designed to be dual purpose and the shed is used a lot in the summerhouse set up. We realised that 98% of the time you would not use it as a bar so the idea was to create both a bar and a comfy summerhouse with separate storage that would get plenty of use all year round. The summerhouse furniture is moved out into the garden and the folding bench seating is raised when required for an event. The whole transformation takes minutes (the finishing touches take a little longer) and the result is a place to really enjoy with a wonderful beach bar atmosphere.
