The wife asked me what I want for Father’s Day. I told her a chainsaw sharpener.

I now change my vote.

I feel like there was some photographic voodoo there because it looks MUCH bigger inside than it does from the outside.  It looks like it might be 10x10 in the one picture of the base.  But I can imagine being in there on a cool and drizzly Saturday afternoon with soccer on the telly, playing darts with a pint.  Also, you would only need about 5-6 people in there for it to be jam-packed to capacity!  :D

If we had a larger yard at the house we are building I might actually give it a whirl. I don't think it would be that expensive to construct. Only two windows and one door.

If you bought all new materials then pushing $10k for the completed building. If you scoured and secured the door and windows as well as most of the materials from salvage/overstock probably under $5k. The expensive things are the fixtures and those would depend upon your tastes and needs.

It looks like the "pub" version has a higher ceiling than the base kit.  Someone could have ordered the base kit and tricked it out a little bit.  Now, to get it delivered across the pond.  :P
