Handyman builds his wife a pub in their garage for just $300

After eight weeks in lockdown, one Sydney man has had enough. 

Unable to visit the pub due to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, Daniel Rule decided to bring the pub to him. 

His wife Kaylyn told Sunrise that she had mentioned to her husband that lockdown was making her miss going to her local pub for a cold one.

Agreeing with her, Daniel pulled his resources and decided to build a pub in the garage of their Sydney home. 

“I honestly didn’t think it would happen as fast as it did - it was all done within a couple of hours,” Kaylyn told the Channel Seven breakfast show.

The impressive set-up features a bar bench made out of wooden pallets, flashing lights and bar stools. 

Daniel purchased all the materials at a cost of $300, after browsing Bunnings Warehouse and local businesses on Facebook Marketplace.

Kaylyn decided to document the construction process on her TikTok account, and the video has been viewed over half a million times. 

In the video, Daniel creates the bar by nailing together wooden pallets before sanding down the surface and applying varnish.

He also mounts two shelves to the back bar to hold alcohol and a television for watching their favourite sports.

Kalyn said the reaction to the video has been “crazy”.

“I just wanted to make the video so I could show our friends and family - we honestly didn’t think it would blow up like this.”
