Looks good on that artificial lawn. Now when the ole lady kicks you out, you have a place to go but of course you’ll have to share with the dog.

That is one magnifico build pottzy... You’ll have to build a matching chair so you can sit at the end of the bed all night and admire it.

By the look at the number of slats you are not planning on heavy sleeping and if it’s not heavy sleeping

maybe you should increase the number of slats…

Nevertheless, I always knew you were a generous person and like to share… but your night-time with the neighbours???... you kinky dog you…

Hope you have a bloody good umbrella for those rainy nights.
