    This might be a project people would like. I wanted a simple border fence for my small yard and had some of those landscape timbers just laying around and a customer gave me some more so I made a simple hitching post fence to go in front of the cabin. It is designed for looks but could be...

    In the Spring I spent alot of money and had a 72' of cedar fence installed. The advice I was given at the time was don't do anything to it until the fall, let the cedar dry etc. So now its fall and since I spent so much money on the fence I want to do whatever the right thing is in order to...

    Other than by hand! We are putting in a split rail fence (we got it used!) and need to dig 25 3 foot deep holes. Our ground is incredibly hard and very rooty, because we have so many trees. It could take weeks to do it by hand. What would be the best, most managable tool for 1 person to use...

    While we were picking up reclaimed brick for a gardening project, we found wood! The redwood is in excellent shape and fairly new. The owners of the building tore down some walls while remodeling. All we have to do is remove nails and we have some amazing wood to repair our very long broken down...

    Is already broken. It was fine when the kids & I got home. The neighbor & her new tenants were over there doing something. I have no clue because it always looks like crap over there. Just a few minutes ago (we've been home an hour) Darcee goes outside and comes back to tell me the fence is...

    I haven't been around much this week due to my starting a new job, but I wanted to update everyone on this stupid fence thing. I contacted my attorney and explained the neighbors were threatening a lawsuit. He sent them a letter explaining what they could and couldn't do according to the law...

    Well I called the city (again) about this fence the neighbors want to put up. Their is no survey filed with the city. The neighbors have not filed for a permit to put up this fence either. The person who cut down our tree is a brother n law to one of the neighbors. They did come and talk...

    Well here is another fence story....lol. My neighbors want to put up a privacy fence. We have absolutely no objections to their having a privacy fence because they do have five dogs that they let run off lead. These dogs come in our yard and 'relieve' themselves and it gets to be a big...

    Just curious as to how things are with the new fence and your neighbor? Has the game of musical cars in her driveway begun yet? Fill us in please, I need an update (I fell like an addict - LOL) All of the events and photos last week were so entertaining.

    Isn't it gorgeous? If you look just over the fence in this one, you can see her pool with her permanent set of steps (by law, she should either have a 4ft fence around the pool or removable stairs ;) ). They came around 3pm while she was at work. They were done by 3:30pm. These pictures...

    NAIL IN THE FENCE Make sure you read all the way down to the last sentence. (Most importantly the last sentence) There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His Father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the...
