The hardest part about building a fence is getting good help. You need someone to work with that cares about the project as much as you do.............Problem solved!
Grace worked so hard, I was truley Amazed! From cleaning holes to delivering the posts where they needed to go to mixing all of the concrete for the job (over 3 tons worth).
This really is a joint effort. We are working so hard on this, we literally drag ourselves in the house at the end of the each day and treat ourselves to a "Motrin Coctail".
The holes are 3 feet deep, the posts are treated 4"X6" and the rails are 2"X6" Douglas Fir.
It is coming along nicely, but there is still a lot of fence to install. Not to mention 2 double gates and 2 walk gates. It is a good thing I learned so much about building fences from my Dad! (And I have the Best help I could ask for!)
I was born and have lived my entire life in the state of California. My parents moved to the little town of Thousand Oaks in 1959. The first year there, we did not even have a school. We had to go to school in makeshift classes in a cul-de-sac of new homes. The town has since turned into a beautiful town with a population of over 100,000. I married the girl I dated in high school and for some reason, she still keeps me around (35 years and counting). About 10 years ago we moved to a smaller community about 7-8 miles away in an attempt to re-capture that small town feel. Oh I forgot to mention that in 1976 we were blessed with the birth of a wonderful daughter. Our daughter married about the same time we moved (10 years ago) and now we are all getting ready to make the next journey in our lives. We are going to be moving to the Spokane area (in 2007) of Washington state. We are hoping to be able to buy homes as near to each other as possible (on acreage). Look out Spokane, here we come!
