to do a deck is pretty basic if you have the tools especially if you have a level patio to build frame off already.

That's what I thought, thanks.
Can you get decking that looks the same?
Also my patio really isn't big enough, I need to double size (at least) so I don't think it would work as a base for a frame, did you do yours yourself?

I didn't do ours it was a much bigger undertaking than just building a deck at ours built fences at same time in same materials and raised beds and deck is on 2 levels.

But a simple deck is pretty basic if you are ok at DIY I think especially if you already have a level to go off.not sure about if you can decking like those tiles in theory there's no reason why you could not build a base for those tiles to sit on I guess.

Sym may well be most qualified to advise here

I got mine instore mate, it was 100% cotton, worth a look if there's one near you but wouldn't waste your time if you're ordering online!

The link illwill posted looks pretty spot on though to be fair.

Used to have an enormous rat turn up in our backyard at my old gaff. Did some research and it most likely lived in the void under the next door neighbours decking (it's pretty common). Put me off ever having it Eek

On the decking talk, wooden decking looks fantastic when you first get it but is a pig to keep on top of and looks scruffy as fuck really quickly. Having had it I wouldn't get it again, patio much lower maintenance.

Any ballers on here interested in buying a Matthew Hilton Blazac sofa?

I've got two 3 seater sofas in the light buttery leather colour for sale. Bought from SCP in Shoreditch a few years back and are now surplus to requirements.

This. Patio so much nicer, easier to maintain and you won't break your neck in the rain.

Anyone recommend a dining table for my new place? After a circular or oval extendable one, looking to drop a few grand for the right one but equally open to something cheaper if it looks good. Room is fairly square 4x4m. Wooden floors, white/cream walls and a 50's teak sideboard in there at the moment. Nothing jumpin out at me from heal's etc.
