Couple transform garden shed into their own lockdown pub
    2020-06-30  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

ONE solution to fill the pub gap without stepping too far outside your home? Making your very own drinking hole in the back garden. That’s exactly the project Sadie Jones and Nick Threadgold, both 45 and from Wilmslow, Cheshire in the U.K., decided to take on in lockdown, turning their garden shed into a pub over the course of three days — for just £500 (US$615).

Sadie, an estate agent, and Nick, an interior designer, kept costs down by sourcing materials from Facebook Marketplace and their friends.

Sadie said: “I came up with the idea of converting the shed to a pub as a way of getting to go somewhere with all this lockdown.”

“But when we thought about it more, it just made sense to have somewhere with an inside as well as outside with the glorious British weather. My partner Nick is an interior designer so he set to drawing up an initial plan to give us the layout and we set to work from there.

“We had some carpet from a bedroom, and Nick got some mirror board from his work,” said Sadie.

“The brick wallpaper and the tongue and groove was from B&Q. We had a Beerhawk Keg dispenser which we moved into it. I picked up some old pumps and beer mats off a friend for display only. A lot of the interior decor was from Amazon, like the pictures and LED lights,” she said.

“We have some friends who own The Edge Gin so they gave us some bottles to start off the bar, along with Brisa Marina for some colored and flavored vodkas. In all, it cost around £500 including the £80 fridge and £50 freezer we picked up on Facebook Marketplace.”

In addition to the end result being quite the treat, the couple enjoyed the process of working on the pub, with all the DIY giving them something to focus on to battle lockdown boredom.  (SD-Agencies)
