Gates and Fences

The wind has blown itself out - for the moment.
Winter has finally arrived!
I'm not used to the cold.
By the end of the day my tiny feet were frozen.
So have a guess what I've been doing today. Yes , you're right. Fencing! Lots and lots of minor repairs, plus a couple of replacement panels, and a post to replace. Not a bad days work. It's got to the point that I'm starting to enjoy repairing lap-panel fences. I know they're cheap, but they're so flimsy (even the "quality" ones). Overall, I'm sure they work out much more expensive than "proper fencing. If you need to renew some fencing, I suggest you order it from a proper timber merchant, rather than going to the superstores - there is a VERY BIG quality difference. I've been using Alsford Timber in Birch Road as my supplier. Try them, they're nice people to do business with.

It wasn't all fencing. I also had to hang a couple of Ledge and Brace gates, which doesn't take long. I suppose I should say it's all in a day's work.
I'll freely admit, by the end of today I was ready to come home and thaw out.
