my fence is stuck in limbo because my dad's an old stubborn nutter with ocd.
began it 3 years ago, left 30' unfinished, why? see above.
he took out a 'regular ole fence' & put in:
12"x3' deep steel posts(i.e. chain link), jointed, keyed, & steel-reinf. curb at base between posts, painted & hand-cut dog ears, like it's a jewelry box. he had to buy a drill press (for his posts), and rent & jackhammer 2' for each post. because he wouldn't shift his posts away from the ancient fence post footings.
I lived in a similar setup to the one at the thread's start... 55 acres, unfinished, drafty-ass house with animal roommates, heh, (not just the grower dude--like, owls & bees & shit). Ever since, i feel like my suburban 1/4 place now is like living in a downstairs apartment in the ghetto. I need to see more trees than people tofeel safe these days.
hash in the morning coffee, left on the filter again
