We had resisted putting up a privacy fence on this side of the yard for a long time. We have always felt it isolates you from your neighbors...and makes a yard feel "closed in" but the deer aren't giving us any choice...so the picket fence and chicken wire started to come down and the privacy fence has begun to go up.
Did I mention we still had an extra pair of hands to assist...which was a good thing because I am only a mediocre assistant. We still have a long way to go but the posts are set and most of the framing is done (and the picket fence and chicken wire are down)...which is a good thing because our extra pair of hands leaves for home today.
We really need to get the outer slates and the gate done by the end of the week. The hard part is done (I think) Looking ahead to some full evenings and a busy "Furlough Friday"this week.
