Default Outdoor Bar

Bored here at work so I thought I'd show how my outdoor bar build is going. I repainted the outside of my house and put on a metal roof and decided to add on to the back of the garage since I am never inside and wanted a place to hang out. Here are some pics of the progress we've made in the last couple of weeks.

Gonna stain all the deck boards and concrete. Picked up a trailer full of old fencing for the walls and center ceiling.

Yes sir. The top center will be barn wood. I left it open to put electrical outlets. I'll cover after I'm done. I want to get the barn wood up on the walls also and then I'll put in some GFCI outlets. As far as fans, I'm going to go with the wall mounted oscillating fans. Ceiling fans just don't push enough air on a hot day. Light will be neons hanging straight down.

None on my phone. It's added to the back door of the house and wraps around the back. Mine is 3x3 square tubing and c purlin that's welded together with r panel roofing.

With a gas grill,pellet smoker, small cabinet with a fridge, table and 2 benches it doesn't seem that large really.
