Neighbors build a pub between their houses
Little alleyways like these are everywhere in the United Kingdom, usually between row houses. They are usually just dead space, but two families from Willenhall had a brilliant idea!
In 2015, Kelvin and Samantha Mayes and neighbors Rob and Helen Sheldon teamed up for a very special project. Between their houses was a six-foot wide gap, standing unused. Well, the friendly neighbors decided to do something about it.
Lo and behold, a private mini pub was born! The room is less than 15 feet long, and six-feet wide: enough space to create something marvelous!
The tiny pub, named The Outback Inn, was made for less than $125. Half of the money went towards the roof. Old bus seats serve as banquettes, while the bar was made from an old work surface.
The many treasures that decorate the interior were either donated by friends, or found on eBay or at flea markets.
It only took about three short months to get the pub up and running.
The two couples then stocked the mini pub with their own home brewed beers, lagers, wines and ciders.
"We believe we have achieved something really special," Kelvin Mayes told reporters.
It looks this these folks will never have to go far for a good time!
Inspiring! Already thinking about how to turn your unused space into a dream spot?
