Starting the Fence

Here's our backyard, where we cut a tree down not too long ago.

This weekend we started building a fence. On Friday we got our lumber delivered.

And then Saturday, Kyle picked up a monstrous post-hole digger.

Kyle, John, and I pushed over the remaining old fence. Then they dug a trench and placed a retaining wall so that our gravel wouldn't wash out into the neighbor's yard.

Cory came over from Kansas City to help.

Holes were dug, posts were sunk, and the basic framework was set before dark.

Tuesday night, Kyle and Zack nailed in the pickets. It's all done except for one corner, but here are some after pictures.

Hopefully in the next weekend or two we'll be able to finish and get the shed up.
