So, my step-son and daughter-in-law to be decided they needed an outside bar to complement their decking in their party garden. Yours truly decided that it would make an excellent wedding present. Costing it initially in sawn treated timber proved to be prohibitive - even for a small corner style unit!
A quick visit to the local builders merchants and a bit of cadging later I managed to get 20 old pallets delivered to my drive. 2 hours of pressure washing later I was ready to begin. As with all things the design and size changed as ideas developed and I ended up building a full-scale beach-style tiki bar complete with galvanized steel roof for that authentic look. Again the roof was kindly donated, and the final cost of it all came out a just shy of £ 100! I hope you like it!
