    Shed Features

    SIMCO Bar is special because, what was once an unused, un loved brick out house. It is now a thriving Mini Bar. Used regularly since 2015 by friends and family, special memories have been made within this small brick shed, from Birthday Parties, Garden Parties or just a place to have a chat, or watch football on the mini tv or even a movie in the outdoor cinema. With room for three in the pub and 10 the bar garden. There is plenty of space for everyone even with Social Distancing. It even has a facebook page, detailing what is happening to friends and family.Designed to make the most of the space available, this 5 x 5 Mini Pub has a bar, 3 bar stools, shelving for beer bottles and beer glasses and over 200 beer pub badges adorning the walls and ceiling, there is even a dartboard.The outside of the shed is clad in slatted wood, with a wind cooled beer fridge in the porch with hideaway door, integrated water butt, fed by a bottle rain chain and raised bed under shed window.It also has a porch for rainy weather and a sun sail for better days. In the evening fire pits are avaiable to add some outdoor heating for all year use. I am really pleased with what I have built.

    Other Shed info

    I have also added plastic grass on the shed roof, with an artificial hedge with the shed window doubling as a garden mirror with optical illusion window frame to finish the look.Other extras I have made are Adidas shoe box cool box and a table made out of an old cable reel topped with bottle tops.
