New Fence

When we bought this house last March, we knew the fence was rotted out. In fact, we got a little money off the purchase price to be able to replace it. Of course, we decided we could live with it for a while in it's poor condition.

But winter came with wind and rain. And the old fence had clearly come to the end of it's life.

Bad Fence

See? The only thing keeping the fence up is the bottle brush trees that we want to take out.

This morning, 3 guys showed up and took the old fence down in about 15 minutes.

New Posts

New fence holes and posts went in.

Framing Up

Tops are squared off.

New Slats

Slats installed.

No More Lean

All done! No more lean!!!

It took three guys, four hours to demo and put in the new back fence. It seriously would have taken Brian and I a week and marital counseling to do this.

Back of the House

So pretty! The side fences need replacing too. Unfortunately, neither neighbor seems on board with that at the moment. They are in bad shape but not falling over. We'll just live with it for a while. The major issue was the back fence and now we can really start to make the yard into the garden/living area we want.

Ug, we had our fence like that blow down the street in one of our windstorms....not fun fixing it in wind and rain, but with dogs who need to pee had to be done. Looks fabulous!
