Old Western Saloon


Recently Randy built a single story saloon building for some friends down the street.  It's a one-room building which looks like an old western saloon - complete with the tin roof!  They plan on using it as a entertainment room - sort of an extension of their house with a wild wild west theme.


I loved how it looked and thought it deserved a post on the blog, even though it doesn't really have to do with our property!  I can just picture a cowboy coming out of this saloon with a drink in his hand after a long day of robbing banks and riding horses.

Farm Girl said...

That is so cute, what a great idea, yes, I agree it needed its own post.:)

Very impressive building! Congrats to Randy! He probably would enjoy talking to Nick about his shed he made with no nails. Japanese style!

Cindy - I'll tell Randy you want one!!!

John Gray - I asked Randy your question, he smiled. He had plans of putting up the shuttered doors mounted to the 4x4's which are to the sides of the front door. But it didn't work out. Oh well, if he builds another for someone he'll def have to add shuttered doors.

Farm Girl - Thanks!

Gail - Coming right up! I'll slide it down the bar!

Barb - I told Randy about Nick's shed. He asked if wooden pegs were used in the place of nails?

As long as you don't have to be the saloon girl. :)

That is VERY cool. Lee wants to know if Randy installed break-a-way windows for those exciting saloon brawls? :)

Razzberry Corner said...

Nope. No break-away windows! lol.

I love the saloon! I actually found this page searching diy saloons. My wife and I are thinking about doing something very similar. Can you maybe give me an estimate of how much this building cost? We're trying to figure out whether it would be better to build it ourselves from the ground up or to buy one of those Tuff Shed things and make modifications. Thanks!
