Couple go viral for hand crafted interior of their newly built garden mini bar
It's funny how much we've discovered about ourselves over the last couple of years. I can't believe this only took them 3 weeks to build.

The last couple of years have thrown humanity a lot of curveballs. One of the most notable, of course, has been the lockdowns. But, as they say, every cloud has a silver lining.

While we’ve all been through a whirlwind of challenges, many people have discovered newfound talents lying dormant within themselves.

Many of those hidden talents seem to lie in creative home improvements.

After a day’s work, isn’t nice to head out to your favorite bar and have a drink? What about office celebrations or mini-reunions?

Looking forward to these events doesn’t only relieve stress, but it also allows us to spend quality time with our friends.

Sadly, many of us have had to forsake our favorite hangouts in favor of hunkering down, so to speak.

Some people came up with brilliant ideas, such as drinking with friends via zoom, while some decided to look for a brand new hobby to avoid missing their hang spots.

But this couple from Greater Manchester had the bright idea to combine the two.

Their love for drinking led them to an awesome idea.

The couple built their own mini pub in their garden.

They wouldn’t let this pandemic stop them from doing what they love, and what a great way to spend their time than to create something that they both want?

It’s a fun and clever idea, but this is just the start.

The Crabtree family thought about bringing the fun right in their own home, and their idea was superb!

The couple decided to talk to Amy, the woman behind Octavia Chic, and there, they decided to lay out the plan for their project.

Amy was as excited as the couple, and from day 1 of the construction up to the last day of completion – she has been hands-on witheverything.

She wanted to make sure this tiny garden pub was really beautiful.

Amy documented the process of this project on her Facebook.

According to Amy, it only took 3 weeks to complete this amazing mini pub, and the owners are in love with it. If you can’t go out and enjoy your free time in a pub, then why not create your own personal pub?

They even came up with a name that’s as catchy as the bar is cute- The Drunken Crab.

We know you’re excited to see the interior, and we are sure that the finished product will even exceed your expectations!

Now, the inside of the pub comes complete with whatever you expect to find in an actual pub. They have tables, chairs, stools, glass jars, expensive wines, a dartboard, a bar area, a fireplace, and even Scampi Fries.

If you think it looks good on the outside, you’ll be awestruck at how it looks on the inside.

It’s okay to feel jealous. Anyone would understand.

You have guessed it right, Amy’s post instantly became viral with 32K reactions, 48K shares, and of course, 72K comments!

People have been messaging and commenting on her post on how they can avail the same service.

Who doesn’t want their very own pub in their garden?

To which Amy replied:

“We are based in Wigan and as this took 3 weeks to complete we can only consider doing garden pubs in the Northwest. Also we would need to come and have a consultation before pricing.”
