    Replacing the fence

    last year we bought this place and we knew that we had to replace the fence at some point in time, so last month we decided to take it down and build a new one.

    This is how it looked like, concrete posts with panels, the concrete posts were not really long enough with the loose soil we have here, eventhough they were set in concrete, it didn't took us long to take the fence down.



    We dug holes for the new posts, set them in concrete, attached new rails and gravel boards















    We started this on Friday and on Sunday we had it all done,

    The next project was a bin store and a raised flower bed - pictures to follow

    Chris, was there a murder in the second picture in the middle of the street causing you to get on this project so fast and furious? I saw the chalk outline and was just wondering!!
    Anyway, WOW!!! That is one awesome fence!!
    One thing I don't do when building fence is use concrete around the posts. Posts rot off quicker as the concrete blob is constantly wet. Plus around here if not below the frost line, the posts will heave quicker/faster. Great looking place!!

    Thanks for the replies

    The chalk lines is to outline the putholes in the road, the council still has to fill them up

    and yes I have some good helpers, The wife, and my two sons. things wouldn't go that quick without them

    That's a great improvement, Chris. I'll bet the neighbors appreciate it, too.

    Great-looking neighborhood, too. I like all the trees.

    Oh and by the way Chris, welcome to the family! I somehow missed your first post. Don't give your specific mailing address, but if you would put your locale in your information, we would know general location and if anyone is close to you to drop by and hassle you!! Not really to hassle, but when answering a post, it many times is easier to know a general location for an answer.

    Great looking job on the fence. Only problem is the cars are driving on the wrong side of the road.
