The New Privacy Fence

Over the holiday weekend, we put a privacy fence in to make an effort to barricade in our devilish perfect little Westie. In the last couple weeks he has escaped twice.. two days in a row. Thankfully the first time the neighbor found him wandering around her backyard and carried him home thanks to his id tag. And the second time I happened to check the mailbox and saw him doing his business in the front yard, this time no collar or id tag. He managed to somehow unhook his collar and I am still amazed and confused about this fact. Anyways back to the issue.. privacy fence. We had been putting it off, mostly because of procrastination and avoidance. But we planned it out finally and decided to just get it done. I don’t know what we were so worried about. It was a thousand times easier that I thought it would be. A couple hours the first day to dig the holes and get the posts in and a couple hours the second day to add the cross beams and attach the planks. So simple and it looks amazing. The best part of this project is the fact that we did it for under $75 and a contractor quoted us about $750. Totally, completely worth it!
