- For a finishing touch add signage to name your bar and create a delicious signature drink.
Seating and Space
Is your current outdoor space big enough for your lifestyle? Or perhaps the size allocated on your plan is a little large for your needs. These are things you will discuss with your builder when they customising the new design or renovation to you.
When project is completed, will you have enough seating for all the guests who will be fighting for an invitation to your fabulous backyard warming party? You may not need a 12 seater dining set but an extra chair or multi-purpose ottoman/seat could be more than enough.
