Like so many of us, dads are really breaking out their DIY skills as they spend more time at home—and some of their projects are truly next level. One dad went as far as to build a personal coffee shop in his backyard from the ground up, and it will desperately make you want your own.

Twitter user @Juliannastrid shared photos of the coffee shop her dad built in his backyard in just three months. He's a full-time contractor who built this coffee shop as a side project. “He worked on it ONLY after work & on the weekends,” she shared in a tweet. “He took pieces that were ‘trash’ from old jobs (the doors, materials to build the structure, the front window etc) & repurposed them to create his coffee shop.”

The tiny shop—named “La Vida”—features a rustic-meets-modern vibe with white paint and wood accents. It has two large windows for ample lighting to read, hang out, and enjoy coffee. On the outside, there are gorgeous string lights for a nice ambience and a cute table with two chairs. Inside, there’s plenty of seating–including a nice game table and bar seating by the windows. It’s decorated with a simple menu, coffee bar, mini fridge, TV, reading material, large clock, and what looks to be a small fireplace.

"I’ve grown up watching my dad build amazing things around our house and for other people, he is truly an extraordinary builder," @Juliannastrid tells House Beautiful. "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."

Her dad, Ed the Builder, just made an Instagram where you can follow him to see what he builds next. TBH, I’m not sure how he’ll top this masterpiece of a tiny coffee shop, but I can't wait to find out!
