Customer Case Study: Transforming a Garden Space into a Rustic Bar Oasis

Customer Case Study: Transforming a Garden Space into a Rustic Bar Oasis

Location: Wakefield, UK
Project: Custom 7m x 4m Garden Bar with Outdoor Decking Area and Veranda

Timber Building Specialists were approached by a client in Wakefield who envisioned a unique garden retreat—a bespoke garden bar that would serve as the perfect venue for entertaining guests and enjoying scenic views. The objective was to create a rustic yet functional space that could be enjoyed year-round.

The primary challenge lay in maximising a relatively compact space while ensuring it blended seamlessly with the natural surroundings. Additionally, the structure needed to be well-insulated to maintain comfort throughout the changing seasons, and the aesthetic had to evoke a genuine rustic charm.

The project was executed in several key phases:

  1. Initial Planning and Design: Detailed consultations were held to understand the client's vision, followed by the creation of comprehensive design plans.
  2. Construction: The construction phase involved erecting the structure, installing the apex roof, and insulating the floor and roof of the log cabin. Careful attention was paid to the craftsmanship, ensuring each log was perfectly placed.
  3. Finishing Touches: The final stage saw the painting and varnishing of surfaces, installation of the bar, and setup of the interior decor, including the TV and seating.
