Might actually be this one

Oh yeah, definitely.  The ceiling is right and check out how the wood overlaps (for lack of a better term) near the entry.  The original one doesn't do that.  This one is actually slightly smaller and cheaper.  How did you find these things?!  :D

I have a knack for finding information on the internet. I followed the original link to the Facebook page. Then started reading the threads for each photo. Followed that to a link which lead to the cabin link.

Another example of how to find things. Needed to speak with the owner of a property near mine and had no contact info. Went to the GiS system, found the property card, googled his name, went through a few sites, found one which listed his vocation, added to his name, found a professional listing with a phone number and called him. Voila!

I don't really want to buy one of these (okay, maybe I do) but I would love to see one and maybe even help build one.  I see that 3m is approx. 9.8 ft. so this thing is basically 10x10 which is the size of one of the bedrooms in our house.  I feel like you could do something in that space but the 'pub people' really put a lot inside that small space. 

Pardon me, where is the loo?  :D

Outhouse!

Yeah, that pub is sweet. Why can't actual pubs here in the US have that atmosphere? All the breweries these days prefer an industrial feel which is so cold feeling. There's a place called The Sanctuary in Iowa City that has, or used to have, that sort of old world feel, but new owners kinda killed the vibe a few years ago. So sad...

I'd stick build it. If you want that corner door the most important thing would be to create a beam support to the corner which wouldn't sag. If the roof materials are kept light it wouldn't have to be that dramatic.

Because here, that stuff is hard to procure initially and hard on the maintenance budget. Industrial's also helluva lot easier to keep clean and working.... unfortunately.

It's a shame. Bars and breweries would be a helluva lot cooler if they were like that... But then again, I'd probably be a helluva lot more broke too :D

My wife said I could have one if I put in the corner door.

I'm not kidding, I have been rubbing my chin and looking at a corner of my yard.  I even emailed the company that sells the kit and asked if they shipped them to the US.  No answer yet.  It's very cool looking and I feel like I have the ability to do some cool things with it.  That section of the yard (miraculously) is covered by a new wifi system I put in place and I have access to electric although I would probably play with using low voltage lighting (I have a big LV system in the backyard and it's already right in that spot.  But maybe you want a fridge back there and a TV and maybe even one of those in-room air-conditioners for when it's hot out.  I dunno... I feel like building it would be really cool.

If I were you I’d source the materials myself. That kit is WAY overpriced.

I'm sure it's overpriced but I am not a master woodworker.  All of those pieces are notched to fit together just so.

If I tried building that from scratch it would look like this...

Don’t short change yourself. You could build something similar for AT LEAST 50% (if not more) of the cost of that kit.
