In the summer we all want to get out of the house and spend as much time as we can in the great outdoors.

Yet, no one likes to get into a car and then drive to a green place. A car ride robs you of precious time you can be spending with your summer buddy, Mother Nature.

So, wouldn’t it be great if you could have the perfect outdoor oasis in your own backyard?

Of course it would! But creating a gorgeous outdoor space is hard work. Yet, if all the beautiful DIY projects we’ve recently seen are any indication, it’s not an impossible task.

All you need is a tiny bit of inspiration to lead you on your way, and Reddit user irytek102 has created a splendid backyard escape anyone would be proud of.

In fact, he built his handsome structure right into a hill and the end result is pretty impressive. And to think, he started with a big ole mess of stones…

First he had to dig the right kind of hole. One that was strong enough to support the structure within the hill.

Next he got a large bunch of yellow sandstones and started piling them up.

Once he completed a stone bench, he quickly realized that the bench alone wasn’t strong enough to support the hill. He needed more.

He began building an addition.

He got some concrete and steel and built a wall behind the stone bench. But then he got another idea.

Once the wall was built, he added more sandstone to match the bench.

The wall and bench were completed, when suddenly he was hit with another spark of inspiration.

Yet, in order for him to complete the next phase of the project, he needed to dig up the raw earth.
