A Gated Community?

Before I built a wall I'd ask to know
What I was walling in or walling out,
And to whom I was like to give offense.
-Robert Frost "Mending Wall"

So now I guess we have a gated community to take care of.

After the road was mostly in we had to put up a gate to keep the four wheelers and curiosity seekers out....we can't have THEM wandering around up there now can we?

Actually we've heard some horror stories of people having building materials stolen from the job site because the owner was not staying on the property and there was no gate.  We also heard, from the previous owner, that from time to time he would get people driving up the lane and doing "donuts" in his hay field.

So a proper gate was in order.  Ken and Terry were nice enough to help me...even though Terry was getting ready to go on vacation (something he detests doing).

Ken likes digging holes...and climbing in them.

Terry likes holding posts....and watching Ken work. 



  1. OK... vacation wasn't THAT bad... Note also, that the distance between the poles was 16' 1/8" apart. Not bad for lay workers...

  2. I am enjoying following your journey. I love your posts...keep them coming!!

  3. Enjoyed reading about the "cord wood catch-up". Each time I understand a little more what you are & will be doing. I see what effect the glass gives, nice! Will keep my eyes open. It's fun to
    watch all you children are doing to help too.
