    Shed Features

    Welcome to the "DOG HOUSE." My Bar is a purpose built property at the end of the garden. The Bar itself is 18' by 24'. There is a large corner bar area built into the room, with split level gloss black marbled work top. I have working pumps, optics and bar lighting. Behind the bar is a cocktail bar full with every beverage you could imagine. There is a funky blue mood lighting under and behind the twin seater black leather sofa. I have a proffessional dart board opposite the bar. I have a 7' by 4' slate bed pool table and a 6' inflateble WKD bottle! I am now on the look out for two fruit machines... Anyone know of any, drop me a comment and I am sure I can sort you a drink out.

    Other Shed info

    The dog house was built to be a workshop but when I saw the overall size of it I changed my mind. A number of the neighbours already have their own Bars in there gardens or houses, and as the pubs in this area are either closing or too dear so i decided to make my own. I went all out and got the pool table as its great when you have had a few too many. Me and my partner love to throw garden partys and bbqs so the "DOG HOUSE" was ideal. With the "DOG HOUSE" being a purpose brick built building with electricty we have been able to enjoy it throughout the year regardless of the weather. I have been called two house phil down my street as its not a shed its another house the room is 18ft by 24ft and even has a loft for storage and 9ft by 7ft shed off the end I wouldn't like to think how much it has cost but everyone that has been in so far loves it; so money doesnt matter as long as we enjoy it. bars to also look at in my area is als bar and the fat newt as these are friends pubs (rivals) Should anyone like the "DOG HOUSE" and are interested in having one built, I am a builder drop me a comment or email.
