The Fence Post

Yesterday I finished building the fence that will be the backer to the deck we’re going to build in the back yard.  Heather helped a lot with the measuring and getting things square and plumb. I don’t work fast so this has taken awhile to finish.  Framing in the deck is next but that will have to wait awhile.  Likely it will be later in the fall or spring before deck construction begins.    Heather planted a few  flowering vines that we’re going to train over the fence to create a nice green back ground for our new seating area.  Here are a couple of pictures that Heather took:

Me putting in the last 2×4.

The fence is finished. Now it just needs a deck in front of it.

 

The fence needs a little more work to trim the posts to the right height and there is a trellis on the left that needs to be attached.  Seems like there is always an unfinished part of any project.

And yes, I am not writing much this week.  I did write a long piece yesterday but it’s not ready – it was all about what my next writing focus is going to be.  I feel like I am sitting on the fence looking into four different backyards.  All look interesting but I am still undecided which one to jump into and explore.

So for another week you get pictures and not much text.
