Man Turns Back Garden Into 'Love Island' Villa Replica
But one man has taken his home decor challenge to a whole new level, completely transforming his garden into "a miniature Love Island".
The ITV dating show's distinctive style has become part of its identity over the years, and its fire-pit and wooden decking an integral part of each sun-soaked villa's exterior.
And Merseyside dad Derry Green, 37, decided to replicate this in his own home, with the help of his two kids - aged five and eight.
It's not surprising Derry's home has a Love Island vibe, seeing as he works in Spain - where the TV villa is based.
Unfortunately, he's not able to go back at the moment due to the coronavirus crisis, so he's brought a bit of the country to him.
Explaining what inspired the DIY project, he told Tyla: "We were planning on going on holiday this year but as the situation got worse I realised we wouldn't be going anywhere. I'm not one to just sit around and watch Netflix I want to do something constructive with my free time.
"With the kids being off school and trying to find things to do, we decided to build somewhere that we could create a holiday for ourselves instead."
The garden re-vamp was supposed to "start off a lot smaller", but Derry added: "As the weeks turned into months it started to grow larger and more luxurious to the point it's at now."
He begun working on the project on April 1st, and has been spending eight hours a day on it ever since.
After laying down decking, fitting a hot-tub, comfy seating areas, a fire-pit, a sauna and even adding a 'pod', the garden fully took shape.
"It has been a lot of hard work especially with certain things where you could do with two pairs of hands," he said. "Although the kids have been helping with lots of it, they're only little".

However, Derry says that the graft has been "100 per cent worth it".
Now, his kids love the Love Island themed garden so much that they're all sleeping in it every night.
"We pack up the car like we're actually going camping, drive to the end of the road turn round and come back and pretend that we've arrived at our destination," he said.
"The time spent over the past several weeks doing this with the kids has been some of the best weeks I've had in my entire life."
The whole project cost Derry within the region of £6,000 in total.
However, he says the reception has been priceless, and he's even in a position to make money off the venture in future.
So many people have been asking to stay in the garden that he has now made the decision to list it as available to rent on Airbnb.
"And in 24 hours - since yesterday - I have had 160 bookings and over 1000 messages!," he gushed.
"Everybody who has seen it has fallen in love! The online response has been unbelievable, [and] I've had people messaging me constantly - my phone hasn't stopped!"
Beyond Airbnb, Derry thinks his venture could even be the start of a whole new future.
"People [have been] asking me to design them all sorts of things from gardens to houses - I think this is going to be a new career for me once the pandemic is over."
