A handyman has transform his garden shed into a pub complete with all the drinks he could ever want and a karaoke machine to keep the family entertained during lockdown
With the UK continuing to navigate the coronavirus pandemic and people forced to self-isolate and social distance, it’s been a very long time since anyone has been able to set foot in a pub.
Nipping out for a cheeky Nando’s and a pint is a thing of the past.
But it doesn’t have to be.
One man has taken matters into his own hands and created his very own pub in his back garden, inside his shed.
David Higby from Leigh-on-Sea in Essex has spent two years giving his 20-foot shed a makeover and finished his efforts just in time for lockdown.
The 56-year-old was inspired by the pub, The Mitre in Camden, which his partner’s parents used to run.
When Amanda’s mum and dad passed away, he decided to pay tribute to them by re-creating the beloved pub.
He even tracked down the original pub sign.
The makeshift pub has real brickwork inside and 22,000 pennies individually stuck to one of the walls.
The bar is fully-stocked with all the beverages you could ever wish for, there’s draft pumps, a Darts board on the wall and even a karaoke machine to keep David and Amanda entertained.
All of the hard work on the place was recently completed and they can’t wait to show it off to all their loved ones.
“When all this s*** is over I’m having the biggest party ever…all welcome,” David said.
