Turn Your Shed into the Hottest Hangout Spot with a New Bar-Shed
The new home and garden trend is sweeping the internet, and it’s actually pretty amazing and doable. We’ve seen she-sheds and man-caves but the BackYard Bar Shed puts a different spin on making the most out of your shed. Bar sheds are popping up all over the place, and some of them are pretty darn creative. With a wide array of different options, this is one of the least daunting projects we’ve come across in a while. Let us build the shed and you can customize the inside.
Backyard Watering Hole
The fun thing about bar sheds is that you can get as creative and elaborate as you’d like. Plus, it gives you a place to put all of those beer mirrors and bar games you’ve been storing in your garage since your college days.
What comes to mind when you hear the phrase “bar shed?” I’m guessing many of you have never heard that phrase. It’s so simple, yet until we built our first one, I’d never heard of them, let alone walked inside of one.
It’s pretty genius, right? When we had a customer send us a picture asking us to build it, I was blown away. How have I never thought of this? I wondered. You’ve got a private area, outdoors (yet still covered), disconnected from your regular living space. An attainable retreat at almost anytime. It’s perfect.
From what I’ve learned, the trend started because everyone has their fresh fruit and vegetable gardens and they needed a shed to be outside near their garden retreat. Many people have sheds for storing gardening tools but that’s their only purpose; to keep a $5 rake safe. Naturally, folks started enjoying a quick beer or cocktail in these sheds, and eventually, a few people gathered, mini happy hours casually formed, and from there, the natural evolution of bar sheds began.
This trend has been taking off for many years in the UK, and it’s now starting to pick up steam in the US as well. Many home brewers use their sheds on brew day and refer to the space as a “brew shed.” And of course, we’ve all seen a backyard shed fitted with tiki decor.
We even have a family member who has a bar shed. He doesn’t call it that, and I never realized it until writing this article, but it’s the size, shape, and build of a standard shed, located near their pool. It houses all of the pool supplies, alongside a nice 4-person bar, a beer fridge, and a sizable selection of other adult beverages.
It was right in front of my eyes all this time. I just never really thought of it as a bar shed.
After all, it’s a great way to re-purpose a storage space (if yours is just gathering dust and junk), an awesome venue for small get-together with friends, and a perfect refuge for you and the people you live with when you need a few hours apart. Here at Livingston Farm we can create your next backyard bar shed, it’s up to you to dream!
