Fencing project over Memorial Day weekend



Here is a glimpse of what I did over Memorial Day weekend. All day Saturday was taken up by doing this fence, mainly by myself til my neighbor came out and helped later in the afternoon. I did a majority of all the hard work like digging the post holes and mixing the cement and placing the posts in. I also put up all the 2x4's and the 1st 3 sections you see I put all the cedar boards up. Lot of work. The last 3 sections had to be taken down 3 times, cause things got lopsided, and another time we decided to try and step it down, then I contacted my contractor friend who came over and took a look and said why not just cut it with the skilsaw, so that's what we did. I also cut all the posts to match. It was a lot of hard work but so worth it. The price I was quoted by some fencing co. would've set me back $1200, but I was able to put this up for about $500. Big difference. Damn labor jobs...They kill ya, but they get the job done a lot faster than some scrub who's not sure what they are doing :) Here is another photo
