Apart from vintage bikes the other money pit has to be the garden, although doing it ourselves instead of getting up their own arse overpriced landscape gardeners in :roll: has saved a fortune and its been well worth it as we could decide as we went along just how the finished article would be, well its near as dammin finished and I is well chuffed :) so I thought I would share these piccis with you

Oh, the links above the pics are the befores

Yeah,

had a bbq & beer session on sunday since it was good weather, the sail awning thing was one of those ebay bargains as they sent 2 by accident :twisted: .

looking forward to some nice summer this year now instead of slogging dirt around :wink:

Really nice job, you managed to create several different rooms - pergola adds height too.

Wanna come and do mine :?:

well noticed, we fancied our own bit of ibiza for when we wer'nt there and also a bit of english, so the back garden and side garden were split up at the narrowest point to give us a choice of either or either

wanted to put decking on top of the pergola and put a doorway in instead of the landing window but the idea was poo-poo'd by the missus, would have been great for nosying at the neighbours :lol:

as for doing any one else's.........................................give a guy a break

We're in the process of re-gardenizing.........my only input so far is 'Bigger Shed'- or at least somewhere else to put the non-bike stuff.......'cept for the mower- retro '85 Qualcast that is........but 'Bike Photo Corner'!!- that one thing to be incorporated!!

I'd be happy with the way it is, but 'apparently' sitting on a couple of old pallets drinking Special Brew is not 'Having Drinkies on the Decking Area'........bah!

Anyway, I'll second Gump- excellent use of a fairly small space......G.O.T.M. winner for sure

Cheers,
Dav
