I have come out of the side door many times forgetting about that stupid step and nearly gone over.

Got a little more done today after I finished work.
Took the slabs up that ran down the side of the garage and then took the slabs up that were under them then took the 3rd layer of slabs up !!!!
Decided to take a slightly different route with the drainage pipe than originally planned so dug a trench down the side of the sleepers and then down and under the sleeper out into the garden for the soakaway.
Also repositioned a sleeper to give me the same height along the length of the garage.

haha that is surely THE best way of making steps, slabs slabs and more slabs. Perhaps the previous owner got a load of free ones so just made an effort to use them all.

Since replacing my kitchen in 2016 I've just had no motivation for any forms of DIY projects for some reason. Don't know why but feel that I need to get some changes done outside so keep up the good work and who knows you might inspire me enough to get my ass into gear!

That looks like good progress, will look great when finished. I like threads like these just as much as the car ones

So today I took up all the old flags up that were under the the original patio, got the drainage in and back filled.
2 bulk bags of type 1 shifted and put down but not whacked down properly yet as I have another bulk bag to put down tomorrow so I will whack it all in one go.
The weather held out which was a nice bonus.

It was fun to use, boys and toys and all that .......
The most satisfying thing about using it was knowing I didn’t have any more type 1 to move from round the front.
