I have wanted the dog lot for the grand dogs to run in for a long time, so I finally got around to doing the job. I mentioned it briefly about my grandson Luke helping me dig the holes. I must tell him of his earning his Phd (Post hole digger) thanks to Bonnie.
I have seen many chain link fences but never installed one. Now I have. It is not a big a job as the build up said. The largest challenge was a fence stretcher, being cheap, I was not about to rent one. . I cobbled up one using a small come-a-long. It worked well.
(Some classic woodies)
Again being cheap, the chain link gates were $57 +$20 for hardware (around 80$ w/tax). I built the three WOODEN gates required for the project. One gate for the fence itself and two gates to the deck it is attached to. Total cost for material was right at $400 including about a $100 for the gate materials.
Any way I am happy with it and the job looks pretty good.
I have also been pretty busy installing some gutters on the Car/Motorhome ports.
Shirl has actually been a lot of help on her end in getting a building moved which is encroaching on our property over there, and also supervising the culvert job.
I have been able to accomplish a few jobs for friends and family while home, but to be honest no matter the fun I am having ‘showing off’ I am ready to head for the North East, some lobsta, and some time in the woods hiking the AT.
(This is here just because I like it)
(very hard to explain)
I miss a pickup truck for building supplies, but out little trailer works well since I put the hitch on the little Honda Fit.
I apologize but I guess this is all that is on my mind lately.
