Building the fence 1 – May – July 2015

Filed under: Uncategorized — aroundthebend @ 4:40 pm

As you may know there are strict rules for fences around pools and ponds.  Typically a chain link or board or steel fence. We wanted to go with a bit more rustic cedar rail look befitting the country.  So we negotiated with the city and got permission for that, but some other pieces of the rule (spacing of posts, requiring concrete around each, etc) meant pulling all the fencing we had in place and starting anew.  May long weekend we drilled all the holes and then started putting the posts in with the concrete.  We are now ready to put on the fencing itself.  Here’s a few pics of current status, including one gate area that is complete next to the house.

The gate area before and after.

And some more of the fence perimeter.

And finally adding some of the fence wire with my excellent help.
