Whitmore Fence thought it would take three to four days to install our fence, and I'm happy to report that it took a very reasonable three days of work.
It included about 176 feet of cedar fence with pressure-treated posts, plus two regular gates (one on a slope) and a double gate, mostly separating the house (including the front and back yards) from the driveway and the road. It's not a complete fence, but it does make it much easier to know where the boundaries are.
I was especially impressed with the gate-building. It went smoothly, and produced gates that open easily with a minimum of fiddling, even on the double gate. They offered us a choice of hardware, and we passed up a pretty design for something Sungiva would be slower to open.
The finished fence looks great to me, though putting a fence there makes a very big difference. In particular, it provides a different backdrop to the hillside right in front of the house, and makes me want to do something more attractive there. I spent some of the weekend chopping down sumac and honeysuckle, and now we need to figure what will go there instead.
As always, I've posted a gallery of images if you want to see more.Posted by simon at April 12, 2010 8:40 PM in my house
