Before You Build an Outdoor Bar

Posted by Dan Jolly on Sep 10, 2015 3:41:00 PM

Having a built in outdoor bar at your home is truly a great thing. They’re usually built under the patio awning staying cool in its pleasant shade. They are often connected to a grill and have a built in refrigerator near by. Shade, warm food and cool drinks all within reach from the comfort of your very own backyard. That is a recipe for a good day. Now, if your home already has a built-in bar, then unfortunately the following advice may be too late for you.
