Dad Builds Backyard Coffee Shop Called 'From The Ground Up'

Dad Builds Backyard Coffee Shop Called 'From The Ground Up'

While some of us have missed the pub during lockdown, others have missed their daily coffee. Take this dad in California, for instance, who has gone above and beyond to give his family their coffee shop fix.

Julianna Astrid's dad Ed decided to make a coffee bar in their backyard called 'From The Ground Up', and it looks incredible.

Proud Julianna shared her dad's handy work on social media and it comes complete with everything you'd expect from your favourite Starbucks.

Posting on Twitter, she wrote: "Did my dad really build a coffee shop in the backyard by himself within three months? Absolutely."

The pictures look stunning, and the fact that he did it in three months - on top of his full time job - is even more impressive.

Speaking to Newsweek, Julianna said: "I've grown up watching my dad build amazing things around our house and for other people, he is truly an extraordinary builder.

"He has always had a love for coffee and cozy spots and recently decided to fuel that love into something for his own backyard where the family and our guests can sit back, lounge and bond."

From the photos you can see just how much effort Ed has gone to, making sure every little detail is covered.

The coffee shop has an area for family and guests to chill out together, a table with a chess set on, a magazine rack, a TV and a bar seating area. There is a coffee maker, a mini fridge, a cabinet for pastries and a menu board.

Julianna explained: "Something that really makes me proud is his eye for seeing beauty in everything.

"My dad is a contractor and has been on so many job sites where he has to throw old materials away to make room for the new remodels, but he saved some of the 'trash' from numerous jobs and repurposed it to create his coffee shop.

"These things included materials to build the structure, the coffee shops doors and the front window!"

She said that when the family heard about Ed's plan they laughed, but the man clearly had a vision and he pulled off the DIY coffee shop better than they could have imagined.

Julianna added: "My dad loves looking at little houses and different structures on Pinterest and randomly one day he told us, 'Yeah, I think I'm gonna build a coffee shop in the backyard.'

"All of us started cracking up because it was so random and honestly, just a funny thought!

"Three months later, this thing was built!"
