Backyard English pub

Backyard English pub

Unsure what to put at the end of the pool we narrowed it down to two ideas, A pergola or a backyard English Pub. Surprisingly the pub won. We landscaped the area ready for a 'Stilla shed' to be installed (not done by us as we wanted it to be perfect). Once installed the fitout began and 'The Shoddy' was born. A place to create new memories while chatting about old ones in our own English pub. To watch the pub tour on You Tube search 'the shoddy pub tour'.

Re: Backyard English pub

Wow, what a fantastic addition to the backyard @Theshoddy. You must have great fun with mates in there. Thanks so much for sharing plenty of photos of the build. This is sure to inspire many Bunnings Workshop community members (or at least make them very jealous!)


Watch out for plenty of incoming questions from other members who want to build their own...
