    How to Build a Backyard Bar: 4 Simple DIY Solutions

    Are you ready to step up your entertainment game? Nothing says backyard fun quite like an outdoor bar! A patio bar is the perfect gathering place for family and friends and will make your outdoor space the envy of the neighborhood.

    Whether you add some accessories to your current patio or you go all-out and create a full free-standing bar, you’re sure to enjoy this upgrade for years to come. Here are a few ideas to inspire you as you make plans to build your own DIY patio bar.

    How to Build a Backyard Bar? Start with a Plan!

    The first step in building a DIY patio bar is deciding what size is best for your backyard and what style you prefer. Some homeowners like to go all-in, pouring a foundation and installing a freestanding structure. This will give you the widest variety of options and will allow you to create a fully functional bar space. Others prefer to choose portable bars or patio accessories to create a more versatile option that won’t take up as much room.

    You’ll also need to decide whether your need a wet bar or a dry bar. A wet bar comes fully equipped with running water, an ice maker, a refrigerator, and, sometimes, beer or wine taps. Obviously, this requires more space and is a larger DIY project. On the other hand, a dry bar is used for storing liquor bottles and other bar implements. So if you entertain a lot, you might want to go all-in and install a wet bar. Otherwise, a dry bar is an economical solution that is fine for small gatherings and less frequent use.

  2. 5 Fun Ways to Use a Gazebo with Curtains

    5 Fun Ways to Use a Gazebo with Curtains

    When the sun is too hot or if rain threatens to cancel your plans, a shelter like a gazebo can keep the outdoors enjoyable. However, hot weather and storms aren’t the only threat to a good time outdoors. Summer weather also brings out the bugs and hot sun, which can seriously put a damper on an outdoor soirée.

    Beat insects and blistering temperatures at their own game by outfitting your structure with gazebo curtains. This expands your entertainment options by giving you the ability to block out any excess wind and sunlight on all sides. 

    Gazebo curtains also serve as an additional barrier against pesky mosquitoes, wasps, and other nuisance pests. This guide will explain how curtains can make outdoor time more enjoyable and give you some fun gazebo ideas for your next social event.

    Why Gazebo Curtains Matter

    Gazebo curtains add an extra layer of protection from outdoor elements. While most Sojag shelters come with tinted bug screens, these barriers are perforated to allow the open fresh air breezes. Bug screens grant you more exposure to outdoor elements — which is excellent when you’re in the mood for full sun and wind. However, sometimes you want more privacy or protection from events such as a mild rainstorm or a day that is particularly hot. 

    This is why Sojag makes summer curtains that you can add to your gazebo. They are useful accessories for a shelter that needs coverage beyond bug protection. They add more privacy and shade from the sun and can block wind-driven rain. 

    When you have both bug screens and curtains, you get the best of your yard while leaving out all the elements that make it difficult to sit outside long-term. You don’t need to slather on bug repellent or sunscreen every time you enter a gazebo with double curtains because you’re entering a protecte

    Extending Your Outdoor Space With a Wall-Mounted Gazebo
    A wall-mounted gazebo is a terrific structure to get the most from your patio or deck even in the winter months. Whether it uses steel, polycarbonate, or fabric, a wall-mounted gazebo can allow you to use your patio or deck throughout the year. You might have questions about wall-mounted gazebos: What is a wall-mounted gazebo? Why would I want one? What’s the difference between a hardtop and a soft top? Can I use it to drink hot buttered rum outside in the dead of winter? (Yes, yes you can.) Below, we answer all these questions and more.

    What Is a Wall-Mounted Gazebo?

    Just as you'd expect, a wall-mounted gazebo, sometimes known as an attached gazebo, is a gazebo that connects to the outside of your house. SOJAG offers hardtop and soft top wall-mounted gazebos with sturdy powder-coated aluminum frames. These structures provide excellent sun, rain, and snow cover so every day can be a good day to relax on the patio. SOJAG's wall-mounted gazebos also come with mosquito netting and curtains to provide extra coverage and privacy during buggy summer evenings or brisk winter mornings.

    Benefits of a Wall-Mounted Gazebo

    When you add a wall-mounted gazebo to your house, you add an additional living space where you can host guests or just enjoy your time outside. Sure, your patio may already be a well-used part of your house, but what happens when it rains? Chances are you aren’t going out there with an umbrella to enjoy your breakfast. A wall-mounted gazebo means you can have your breakfast outside, rain or shine.

    Extreme Versatility

    Wall-Mounted or Freestanding Outdoor Gazebos: Which is Best for You?

    Imagine starting your day with a great cup of coffee in the shade of an outdoor gazebo. You can turn this dream into a reality with a stylish backyard gazebo from SOJAG, but how do you know which type of outdoor gazebos is best for you? A wall-mounted gazebo creates a protective cover over your back deck or patio. On the other hand, a freestanding gazebo will create a shady spot anywhere in your yard. Here’s everything you need to know about outdoor gazebos to help you make the right decision.

    Wall-Mounted Gazebos

    Wall-mounted gazebos are the perfect way to upgrade your backyard deck. As the name suggests, wall-mounted gazebos are attached to an exterior wall of your home. SOJAG wall-mounted gazebos have powder-coated aluminum frames that provide stylish support. The galvanized steel or polycarbonate roof provides protection from UV rays and heavy rain. They’re also strong enough to withstand snowstorms in the winter. On hot days you can enjoy the cool breeze wafting through the three open sides of your wall-mounted gazebo. Then, on cool evenings, you can opt for added protection from bugs or cold weather by using mosquito netting or curtains. You can enclose the gazebo to create a sheltered space and extend your outdoor season well into the fall or winter.

    Freestanding Gazebos
