How to Build The BEST Pub Shed in 5 Easy Steps

You might be feeling like your house is missing something, or that your life is missing something now that popping down to the pub with a load of friends isn’t the same or as simple as it once was. 

Staying at home is the new way of going out. You will have seen the new craze of Summer 2020 online and will know that this year Pub Sheds are the next big thing. Why not take the leap, if you can’t go on holiday this year brainstorm some outdoor ideas- bring the pub to your backyard and build your own Pub Shed.

Get your materials together. 

Make it easy for yourself and find a great DIY kit online, get the parts delivered to you in exact measurements so all you have to do is piece it together. Dunster House specialises in sourcing quality slow-grown spruce timber, with pressure treated bearers, ensuring your cabin will last.

This allows you to spend time on the interior design of your backyard project and making it your own! 

Choose a model. 

You have some key decisions to make when you build a pub shed. What kind of roof style and size will suit your garden? Do you want insulation? 

Browse some designs online and decide if you would prefer a log cabin or a fully insulated garden room with uPVC windows and doors. Both suit the function of a Pub Shed perfectly.

Your garden might have a more modern feel, in which case a modern-style log cabin with a pent roof might suit it better. If you want to keep it traditional, choose a chalet style garden building.

Find your ideal location. 

If you have a long garden, you might decide that a Pub Shed will tuck away nicely in a bottom corner. Some log cabins are designed for this purpose. If your garden is more open, you could have a Pub Shed that opens out onto a seating area. 

Add a fire pit, patio heaters or a chimenea for the perfect evening setting. Bear in mind you might need to be able to connect up to mains electricity or water if you want to build a toilet too.


Fit the interior. 

This is the important part- time to add the pub to the shed! Build your log bar. You might want it to fit into a corner to add more storage space inside it. 

Choose your indoor seating, this could be stools or sofas..or both…do you want a TV? A pool table? The opportunities are endless. Take a look at our customer inspiration page for ideas on how to design your pub shed or she shed!
