I decided to take on a backyard project at my house by myself without my guys and friends which I would have definatley taken in a heartbeat but it's amazing how everyone disappears until the need something. It took me a about 3 weeks from start to finish and some very late nights with spot lights out and a ton of hand blisters (my hands must have gotten soft) but I am happy with the end result. There are some flaws but only that I notice. I will admit I was a little rusty. But the guys were impressed and I think it gained their respect a bit and got my wife to quit bugging me why I can build something for everyone else but never for her.
