I suppose that this little project was not one that I did "for fun", so technically it probably doesn't belong on this blog. But it does count as something I made. For the last two weeks, I've been working on the 9' long fence (counting some delays due to rain). I finished it this afteroon. We had to cut down a huge sweet gum tree on the side of the house last year and lost a lot of shade (and privacy...hence the fence). "Favorite part"...spending a whole weekend digging 2' deep post holes, cutting giant roots that were from that old tree.
Nothin' like a face full of cedar-sawdust on a hot sunny day!
Here's the finished project! Next phase...planting some new grass where none has ever survived under the tree...we've tried it for years...wish us luck!
