Fence

Horizontal slat fence planks stained

The iron fence around the front walkway was pretty well finished, so with the parents wanting to take on a project we decided to do a wood slat replacement.


Destruction was pretty easy. Sawz-all, angle grinder, the usual.

The next task was to dust off the hammer drill and put in some galv fence poles. We decided to work around the tree that had grown through the previous structure. At the same time, we stained the redwood planks.


We attached vertical supports to the poles for mounting the slats.

The slats went on pretty easy.

We also snuck in a trip to the zoo food night.

Sounds like support has officially ended for Battleborn. It was a fun, brief ride.


It's too bad, really, but I think J enjoys the e-sports so we may move on to Paragon.

Even played some Battleborn at J's place, along with Switch with Lil'J and the usual sampling of brews.

I've had enough fun playing the X-Wing tabletop game that I picked up a sizeable used set. Around the office we've had a monthlong Axis and Allies Anniversary match.
