Couple Builds Mini Pub In Backyard During Lockdown (24 Pics)

Thanks to the never-ending nightmare of the coronavirus pandemic millions of people have now been stuck indoors for over three and a half months. And with bars closed nearly everywhere former barflies are getting creative with their drinking. After all, when you can’t go out you have to learn how to stay in.

While many people are drinking on their stoops or in their yards one couple in England has taken things to the next level by having their very own pub built in their backyard.

The Crabtree family, from Wigan, in the U.K., hired Octavia Chic to build them the drinking shed of their dreams and the results are amazing. 

The construction and final result of the backyard watering hole was documented in photos shared by Octavia Chic on Facebook.
