I finally finished the Fence on the side of my yard–a few months ago the wind decided to help me with my aging fence and lent a hand by doing some of the demolition. Then Grandpa Joe and Jared Thomas (big thanks to both) came over and with the help of Greenback rentals, we dug in and concreted 13 or so “Z” posts that i had chosen to provide the support of the cedar beast. Grandpa Joe finished his “vacation” by stringing up the runners and the baseboards. Leaving me with the rest… the rain being nice and consistent… just how i didn’t like it, had me checking the weather and leaving work early on a day with sunshine. It felt like any waking moment over the last 6 weeks, if it wasn’t raining and no other higher priority loomed i was out there slapping up the 400 planks of cedar and the 2 gates (1 single 1 double). I found working on the fence to be quite enjoyable, so when a few people offered to help– i kindly told them to get lost and go find their own fun 🙂 the most enjoyable part for me was building the Gates– they were a blast to build and delivered a great satisfaction when they completed — all in all, we have a fence that actually keeps Isaac in the backyard, an extra gate that provides access where there was none, less useless area with grass to mow, and about 700 more sq feet to our backyard. — oh yeah, and it looks way better than what we had… we will be paint/staining it as soon as the rains break and the wood dries out.
