Are you planning to tackle all of it yourself, or getting some trades in?

I've cleared all the dirt (around 5tonnes of it ), done the layout and bought all the material, but I'm paying a guy to lay the patio for me.

Hopefully should be doe by end of next week, weather permitting!
Planning on doing it all myself as I’m expecting what I want to cost a small fortune as it is.
We have already changed our minds on the paving which are half as much again as the original choice and that’s after steering her away from the marble paving

Yea we haven't gone too mad with the paving and that.

Just standard turf and indian sandstone paving slabs.
I did the fencing myself too, so saved a fair bit there.

Think the most expensive things are the three new trees I bought...couldn't believe how much they were!

My little mixer came today £98 from eBay.
Itís not the biggest (70L) but as long as it lasts me through this job I will be more than happy, if itís still going I will sell it on so all good.
Hiring one would have worked out to expensive as I will mostly be working over many future weekends.

Thatís good to hear, were the instructions a waste of time and the bolts numbered in the bags totally useless ?

I almost commented about the fact that coming out the side brown door depending which foot you lead with you're either onto level ground or falling down a step, but then changed my mind as you might've built it like that originally haha. Glad you never and are sorting that hazard out pal.
