New Picket Fence

Hey, y'all!  I was so happy to have the picket fence sections replaced.  Yes, I know we must be rich right?  The cost of lumber these days makes one jump not step back!  But, this has been a long time coming.  We had to make a decision about the thing. Were we going to let it fall down one picket at a time or were we finally going to replace it? 

This was done in July.  We are letting it dry out before priming and painting.  I can't wait to see the finished project.  For now, it is a work in progress.

It is amazing just what you can do from the comfort of your own home.  I ordered the fence panels from Lowes and these two picked it up.   

We've been doing lots of things from home for the last year and a half.  I've always been a homebody, guess I get that from my daddy, but lately, it has become more apparent. Guess that trait comes in handy these days!

We left the 4 x 4s in the ground of course they are fine and makes sense to reuse them.  

These three are hard at work

The panels are different in size than the older ones we are replacing.  They had to measure and cut them to fit the posts.

I'm thankful to have these two to do this!

It is amazing to me how small the area looks now without the fence

This is the white rose garden although at this moment it sure doesn't look like it

The area immediately looks larger with the fence up!

Thanks to Doug and Catie for all the hard work on such a hot day

It Looks Good Y'all!


  1. We replaced our deck, oh my the price of wood!

    1. It sure is expensive now. I'll bet your deck is beautiful.
