I like to keep my eyes peeled for creative home/design/living trends, and this is one of my favorite growing-in-popularity home projects: the creation of pub sheds.
New to this phenomenon? It’s what you’d think: homeowners turning simple storage sheds (or, in some cases, garages or other detached buildings), adding some creativity and elbow grease and creating a favorite bar right in their backyards. Some folks go truly all out with the design and finishings — I’ve been seeing photos of pub sheds with more put into them than some of the full-time beer and cocktails businesses I’ve been to.
Sure, storing tools and things is necessary. But having a fully stocked pub in the backyard seems like a lot more fun.
Feeling as drawn in by the pub sheds idea as I am? Enough to add another must-have item to your house-hunting list? I did a little looking around, just in case — here are a few homes in the area with detached buildings that might just fit the pub shed (or pub garage) bill with a little time and a little vision:
2225 Pennington Ave.
Out behind this cozy, 2-bedroom mid-century cottage in Inglewood: a shed with what was designed to be a super practical 2-car carport, but, after a pub shed project, could always be designated an al fresco covered cocktail patio…
1115A Biltmore Dr.
This spacious, Cape Cod-style home near Oak Hill is charming on the outside, impeccably finished on the inside (check out the sleek open kitchen and the modern soaking tub in the master bath). But the clincher for you pub-shed project fans: a big, two-car detached garage that’s just waiting for a new vision…
4075 Clovercroft Rd.
Going out would be easy, since this 3-bed, 3-bath farmhouse is right near downtown Franklin. But staying in for cocktails in your pub shed could be easy too — the finished, heated/cooled space in the detached garage was being used as a studio/office, but with a little creativity…
by TJ AndersonI’m intensely excited about our new Inglewood hom
"In short, TJ was awesome. He never once pressured us to look for something that was outside of our budget or didn't fit our style. His main concern was that we found the right house for us. He really cared about us and our future life in the home. He was also very knowledgeable about the areas (not just the architectures) that we might be best suited for. Now that we're settling in to our new (and first) place, we couldn't be happier! We're ready for the warm weather to stick around for a while so that we can get cracking on our outdoor projects! I have already recommended working with TJ to some of my friends who are currently looking for homes in Nashville and will continue to do so."
