  • What an awesome relaxing space you've created! Seriously, so cool and well built!!

  • Very cool! How deep did you bury your 6x6s and did you cement them? I just worked on a fence project with 4x4s cemented 2' deep, and the comments about it at work are frustrating.

    • Thanks. Minimum depth is 28” for 10” diameter concrete encasements. Ideally you just need to meet your local frost line depth. So check this map and you’ll know if yours are deep enough. Fence posts are less critical than a structure such as this.

    • Good thing fence posts aren't structural! I’d have to go about 5’ deep to avoid frost; probably be better off insulating. Went with 8” tubes, so I’m crossing my fingers... thanks for the info.

  • This is so impressive! Did you use plans for this or come up with it yourself?
    By RYOBI NATION, on August 21, 2018
    • Thank you! I was Inspired by a product my wife found online, but I drew up the plans myself. 
      By Wreckn89, on August 21, 2018

  • Looks awesome!   Would love to see plans on this!!
    By Bbrownww, on August 21, 2018
    • Thank you! I will release them on the Ryobi tools Facebook group once I'm done refining them to make it easier for others to read. 
      By Wreckn89, on August 21, 2018

  • Looks amazing! I have been eyeballing a product like this online. Yours looks amazing!!
    By Crazylady34, on August 22, 2018
    • Thabks, materials for this cost me about a third to a quarter of what I was seeing online for similar designs. Plus I'm sure this is built with better materials and will last a lot longer! Join the ryobi Facebook group, I'll be posting the plans there soon. 
      By Wreckn89, on August 22, 2018

  • You did an amazing job, hubs and I have been talking about making this for me, we've been looking at it online and it's so very expensive. How much do you think you spent on material? I'm sure it was a fraction of the cost. Great job!
    By ksanchez, on September 4, 2018
    • Thank you! I spent a little less than $500 all said and done
      By Wreckn89, on September 5, 2018

  • great job, my wife has been looking for something like this - I see the list of materials - but no drawings of the plans. Did I miss that link? 
    By user_hayes_183494, on September 4, 2018
    • You can't post plans on here, just pictures. 
      By Wreckn89, on September 5, 2018

  • I need to make one of those, do you have any plans?
    By gidget6868_111564, on September 5, 2018
    • I'll be releasing the plans on the Ryobi Facebook group in the near future. 
      By Wreckn89, on September 5, 2018

  • I love this! We've been working on other projects but this will be next. Any chance we can see the plans?
