Building a Fence

I want to share with you our new and beautiful fence along the front of our block.We were so lucky to have the other three sides of our block already fenced in when we bought it, but with little Molly and little chickens running around we really needed the front fenced in too. I definately didn't want a packet type fence along the front; i wanted something we could make ourselves and most preferably from recycled materials. We were so lucky to source 16 thick cowrie posts and plenty of second-hand corrugated sheets from which we built it. Yes!

The view from the balcony.

 Haha, happy Graham in Bunnings with the farm gate and cement.

  So much achieved in one day! ;)

Once the first post hole was measured out, the rest came together easily.

Graham just loves digging holes...

   The gate sits in a bit from the road.

 This cute neighbourhood hen comes by to visit the block from time to time.

Lining the drive-way with aggies.

And there you have it! I've since started scattering various succulents like hardy aloe vera along the council strip, and we'll finally get rid of that awful concrete stump next weekend..its just so damn heavy! Just look at the gorgeous colour of the wood, we love it :)
