We started out in January - the month was so dry that it was okay to start right away. The Geek designed the fence and then one Saturday afternoon began building.
Everything of this fence is handmade (except for the nails and screws and stuff like that). We bought the redwood and then set up the miter saw and cut, cut, cut. After I had asked him, the Geek showed me how to handle the saw and I was happily cutting the pickets.
The Geek dug the holes in the ground for the posts, sometimes with the help of Kaefer. I was the one who screwed the pickets in place for a big part of the fence, slowly working my way along.
Until, one day in March, the fence was completed. It was a day to celebrate.
It feels so much nicer now with our fence. We will keep it in this natural state, even though the color will gradually change to gray. But that is okay.
I'm linking this to "Good Fences" at the Run *A* Round Ranch for the first time - this definitely is a good fence!
