Fence Building

I feel like every time the duck is home, we undertake these gigantic house projects.

And every time I tell him what we are going to do I feel like he wants to murder me more and more every time.

This particular trip home of his, I have decided he should build the 60 foot fence on the side of our house and landscape as well..

(consider me murdered)

See there is a back story here..

We share our property line with a SUPER CREEPY old dude and his SUPER CREEPY OLD mother

I mean Creepy...(he hit my gardener with a hammer because he blew a leaf on his rented property, yikes)

Anyways

Here is whats happening with it thus far.

Monday



Yesterday...



and tomorrow...





(in my dreams)

  2. That's going to look so good! And I love the first picture...."Mean Neighbors House". My aunt has the same problem with her neighbors, The Basses. We call them the Asses. :-) Have a great day!

  8. If ever anyone needed a fence, it is you. The progress photos look great, and you will enjoy the privacy. The Duck (note, I think he deserves a capital letter)appears to be a talented and efficient fence builder, and I love the design.

  17. Wait... you call your neighbor creepy? Hitting someone with a hammer is assault with a deadly weapon! He's beyond creepy. He's dangerous! The fence looks wonderful - glad you gave "Dexter" the bad side.

  19. Your neighbor is more than creepy, more of a psycho... a potential criminal lol. Anyways, the fence will surely looks nice when it gets totally finished. This will keep your neighbors off and will make the view outside the house more pleasing to look at.

  20. HE HIT YOUR GARDENER WITH A HAMMER?! Geez, that's horrible. I'm sorry about that, Amber. I hope your gardener has physically and mentally recovered from the incident. :) Anyway, building a 60 foot fence on the side of the house isn't that hard - that should keep you away from the troublesome neighbor. Whew.

  21. I have a neighbor like that, old lady on her own never goes out and her vocabulary does not surpass four lettered words. Just sooo mean and evil spirited won't bore you with details but the fence was a fantastic idea, looks fab too.
