As some of you may recall, I have discovered an 8 metre by 4 metre
patio under a heap of soil and compost at the end of my garden. The
patio is now clear.

I intend to use the patio to build a log cabin and garden store.

Mad Dave doesn't believe I can do it - but given the quality of his
decking I have no confidence in his judgement.

The log cabin is now ordered, and I expect delivery in a couple of
weeks. But today I took the first step in the cabin's construction. I
picked up 15 breize blocks to lay the cabin's bearers on, and
positioned them roughly.

Here are a couple of before and after shots.

I know you can't do it. Have you not spotted the flaw in the
instructions you posted?

- but given the quality of his
decking I have no confidence in his judgement.


You still haven't explained, using your vast experience & knowledge of
decking, what exactly is wrong with it.

No doubt you can support that claim?

The class is waiting boy.

Personally I would have used Breeze Blocks. Are you really a teacher?

You are not seriously going to use that as a base?

This could be a Perrier Award winner.

I think he may have attended the same school of construction as Simon Mason.
He's certainly got Mason's eye when it comes to attention to appearance and
making a nice tidy job of it.

I would have put a pond or small swimming pool in that area.
