We took a short hike in Forest Park…

Finished project

The chain link side gate/corner fence, held together with a bungee cord is no more! We don’t have the RV pictured so the utility trailer is tucked behind he gate now. Jason does good work once again.

Jason’s current home improvement project

Jason ripped out a section of chain link gate and fencing we had on one side of the house and is replacing it with wood.

He wants to install an eight foot gate and a four foot gate that will open barn door style to allow for RV parking. We’ll be sticking our utility trailer back there for now, since we sold the RV, but it’s good to have the option;)

An eight foot, wood gate is going to require a BIG post. A big post will require a BIG hole. Jason had to dig through a layer of roots and then a layer of clay but he did it! Simon jumped in the hole a couple times to show the progress of a four foot deep hole.

I was outside with him and the entire time he was digging we discussed the pros and cons of renting some kind of digger. We chatted and chatted about it and then the hole was finished. Ha! He has two more holes to dig but they will be small.

Simon’s crazy face, “help me!” He and Xander are both standing up straight. It’s deep!
