Backyard Development – Stage One

2009
07.29

This year is our second summer in our house, but the first with our grading certificate. So with that little piece of paper in hand we can get down to some serious development.

Stage one of turning our yard into a baby oasis, is to turn it into a jail… Ups I mean add a fence.

After confirming with the neighbors we decided that a cedar fence with pressure treated posts was in order. So we ordered up the material and got to work.

The first thing that was done was a bobcat was hired to put in post holes for both our house and the neighbors. We followed that up with hours of work installing posts, cementing, screwing boards and finally putting on the gate.

    LOL. The bobcat took both of the survey pins right out of the ground! Guess we know who's job just got harder if they ever have to survey our place…

    Sorry ;)

    Everything looks perfect! Good luck, A & B! Your baby is almost here – what an exciting time!

    Alexis, you are gorgeous! Blaine, you look delighted with, well, everything! And so you both should be. :)

    Best wishes,
