I like it  :D the wood looks a bit thin, so it would probably need to be in a sheltered area, but it has my approval  :D reasonable price too. Not the silly 200 a lot are going for.

Hi Nicky, it looks great but it isn't very wide?  770mm is only about 2ft and a little bit wide.  It is about 4ft ish long and about 4 ft ish high at the highest bit. (Sorry about the feet and inches but still work in those to get an idea of how big or small something is) ::)  If you are thinking at any time of getting more girls it could be a bit small? ;)

make sure you treat it with preservative first Nicky as sometimes they are only stained and the wood isn't properly seasoned. Repeat the treatment every year  :)
Staffies are softer than you think.

I got mine of ebay, probably the same importer. There was more than one selling from the same place, so I went with the one I could collect.  Found there was a piece missing when got home, but it did not matter. We did use decking screws in places. The sliding drawer I waxed to make it easier.
P&P is a fair price as it is very heavy, but get a quote for your postcode.
