Ways to Make the Most of your Garden Bar and Store
For many of our customers, having a bar at home has long been a dream, but they simply don’t have a space that would be suitable. With the Garden Bar and Store from Shire, that dream can become a reality as it provides you with a stylish bar area to enjoy on a summer’s day. As the backdrop to a lively gathering of friends and family, perhaps a summer BBQ, you will struggle to find a better focal point for the festivities than your very own bar. You can also rest assured that the fun can continue into the night, and you won’t have to worry about hearing “last orders” (unless you decide to call it yourself!) You really can be the host (or hostess) with the most, and your garden bar is certain to become a real talking point amongst family and friends. But what about the rest of the year when the weather doesn’t lend itself to garden activities? For these months, simply make use of the bar’s removable hatch. Your serving area, when being used as a bar, has a hatch covering which can simply be fitted to your Garden Bar as required to turn it into handy, secure, sheltered storage for the rest of the year. This all means that the Garden Bar and Store is more versatile than simply a purchase for increasing your enjoyment of the outdoors. Whatever you decide to store inside and however you decide to fit out your bar, you are certain to love making the most of your Garden Bar and Store however you decide to use it.
Why Others Tell us they Love the Garden Bar
It is well worth mentioning again that we often hear how our customers had always wanted a bar in their homes and didn’t have the space, only to have this dilemma resolved by a Garden Bar. Plus, with its relatively compact footprint, our customers have been surprised at how straightforward it was setting up their bar even with limited garden space. Taking up no more space than many sheds, and of course with the valuable feature of doubling up as storage much like a shed, this versatility and usability has made the Garden Bar and Store a very popular purchase. With its attractive tongue and groove timber exterior, it is sure to look stylish in any garden. Plus, with its overhanging roof, you have the perfect shady or sheltered area for yourself or guests to relax with a drink or two. Many of our customers can’t wait to get their hands on a Garden Bar so they can customise it to their liking. Whether that means adding electricity and lighting, a custom bar sign, bottle holders or shelves, you can let your imagination free as you design the home bar of your dreams using the Shire Garden Bar as your base. You can also personalise your bar by adding some colour. Shire, the manufacturer, recommends that you use Protek paint, available from elbec in a wide variety of colours. Whether you want a traditional, wood finish to your bar or prefer bold colours for a more modern look, Protek have a colour to suit any taste.
The Garden Bar and Store has a number of quality features that go beyond simply being a fun and stylish purchase for your garden. The Garden Bar gets its strength from its robust 34mm x 34mm framing, giving you a garden building that is built to last. It also boasts a shiplap tongue and groove construction. This 12mm thick cladding is high quality and ensures fantastic protection against the elements as well as adding extra durability to the overall construction. With its panel which can be fitted when required to make the building interior secure and sheltered when not being used as a bar, these features ensure that the Garden Bar’s contents will remain safe and dry. It also features a 12mm tongue and groove roof and floor. This adds an extra touch of quality that provides additional protection against the elements as well as an attractive finish to the Garden Bar package when compared to more unsightly, alternative roof and floor materials. Mineral roofing felt is also supplied for further protection against rot and damp. With a secure, fully framed door with a rim lock and key, you are given extra peace of mind when storing items in your Garden Bar and Store. With the whole building protected by a 10-year anti-rot guarantee, you can be certain you will be buying a product that will stand up to the test of time. We’re pleased to offer the option of booking our dedicated professionals who will assemble your bar quickly and correctly. However, you can choose to use the comprehensive instructions included with your Garden Bar and construct it yourself.
About the Timber
You will be impressed by Shire’s use of natural products and their environmental credentials. A high quality timber product starts with high quality timber, so it is important to know exactly what timber is being used for your storage solution. The most commonly used timber for garden buildings is pine (pinus) as this is widely available for a very cheap price, however all of Shire’s garden buildings are constructed using high quality spruce (picea) and is sourced from Siberia and Scandinavia under strict FSC guidance. Spruce is more durable than pine and provides a higher quality finish. This timber is slow grown unlike fast grown British and Eastern Europe’s timber, being slow grown timber means a tighter grain, less sap and with far fewer knots. The timber used on Shire’s range is therefore a more durable timber that will last much longer than other timbers. Spruce is therefore the timber of choice for companies such as Shire who always look to produce the best garden building.
Established in 1945, Shire are the country’s leading, and one of the oldest established, manufacturers of garden buildings. Shire benefit from being adjacent to the Port of Wisbech, through which Shire discharge timber into their warehouses. Shire is the proud manufacturer of the largest timber garden building range produced in the UK. At peak times they produce thousands of buildings a week. Their range includes Garden Sheds, Log Cabins, Eco Homes, Home Offices, Sheds, Workshops, Summerhouses, Playhouses, Arbours, Storage units and Pet houses. Their production facilities cover some 23 acres and include huge undercover stock holding facilities for many of their ranges, an advanced high speed timber planing mill, modern well equipped joinery production facility and semi-automated production lines. All Shire garden buildings are manufactured in the UK using the finest spruce timber, imported directly and machined through the most up to date machines to ensure the best quality and best value for money products in the UK.
