Don’t short change yourself. You could build something similar for AT LEAST 50% (if not more) of the cost of that kit.
Your too kind, Big Monk.  I consider myself 'mildly handy' but if I see something about a project that I either can't do or I think it won't come out right, I consult a professional.  I think I could build that thing from the kit but sourcing raw materials... might be too much.

My wife wanted a greenhouse she-shed.  I built a deck for it, put the greenhouse together and even threw in some low-voltage lighting...









But that was relatively simple and the greenhouse itself was easy as long as I followed the directions.  Maybe I'll just reclaim the greenhouse and turn that into an English Pub.  :D

Well, I couldn't help myself.  I made an English Pub out of my small shed in the backyard.  I have been noodling with this since I first saw those pictures.

Here's the outside:



And here's the inside:



It came out better than I expected.  :P

Doesn't look like it would be that large on the inside. I guess mine would be a mansion at 8' x 13'. ;)

NICE!  Do you have any beer engines in there?  ;)

Clearly if anyone made a pub from their current shed, the yard would be littered with a lawnmower, grills, charcoal, rakes, brooms, flower pots, etc. and our wives would be PEEVED!  :D

The base was old deck boards from our deck renovation. The storage kit went up in a few hours with ease. It would make a great gathering place if it wasn't filled with stuff. ;)

You can call it the Tardis--- it looks bigger on the inside than from the outside.

I think what you're seeing is the look from the basement.  The spiral staircase is just out of sight on the right.

You haven't put this down, have you?  :P 

It looks like the smaller and least expensive model has the higher ceiling which could be nice.  So... gonna buy it and build it?
