Quality effort @Bluewolf mate! Good story, actually informative and makes me feel like I’d have some hope of doing similar in the near term if I had the balls to try it. My little man turns 3 in 2.5 months (and little girl on the way in Jan) so maybe I should look at least at the playhouse part of that. Could be a good project for me and my (recently retired) old man once the weather improves a bit!!

Is the turf artificial? It looks absolutely pristine either way.

Yea it is mate... After trying it every other way without success I went for that this time.. A few years ago it was poor quality and I didn't want to spend a shit load of money on crap but it's come a long way now and so much better.. nice and safe for the little ones as well underneath, no hard surfaces and a 10 year guarantee.. I got a bit lucky with that as well in truth, The one we wanted to get was out of stock and the next one would not have been available until mid August so told him I would need to go elsewhere as it needed finishing sooner. He was a real big help and he swung it so we got a more expensive one for the price of the one we were going for in the first place.. It's like a big outdoor carpet.. xD

 Good one. We have a dodgy lawn too and it annoys me greatly. But just too many deciduous trees to go for an artificial option. Big oaks that drop leaves everywhere in autumn. Ill probably turn it and reseed it in spring. Need a shade tolerant type of grass i think...

Do you have a photo of the staircase you installed in the playhouse? Interested to see how you made that happen.

Yea, not too shabby... Miles better than what it was before and now I won't have to keep going back over the same old ground over and over again.. got other stuff I need to be getting on with.. That's where we were playing footy yesterday before she rugby style kicked the balls over the fence and that put paid to that.. xD

A book you say.. interesting..

Actually no I don't as it still needs a bit of sanding and painting but once it's painted up I will put up a picture so you can see it..

Post of the year right there. Actually felt part of the journey. I’ve just taken a look at my garden and I think we could utilize your skills, Joe!

Recovered one of the missing pictures and the reason for so much time spent in the garden... Little did Mrs Bluewolf know!  :whistling:

That looks pretty fucking awesome.

If you need a new project, I have rooms that need painting, a wardrobe that needs putting up, bamboo that needs removing and a garden that need levelling.
