Fence Project Update - End of Day 1

Please visit and like my new facebook page Georgia Home Garden.

The fence project is off to a great start.  So far I am really pleased with the quality of work being done by this company.  I have been taking a lot of pictures and here are the highlights from day one.

The first step was they measured off approximately where each post would go based on the string line I had set for them.  They dropped a post and a bag of concrete at each mark.

Another view from the driveway, gorgeous Spring day.

Now the fun part, they started digging each hole by hand.

Each hole was approximately 2 feet deep.

After they had an entire set of holes dug, they dropped in the posts.

They started by plumbing each corner post first, and then tied a string to each corner post.  This string line was used to plumb the additional line posts in a perfect line.

How do I know it is a perfect line?  Because it looks like one post from this angle straight on.

I stepped to the side and snapped a picture and you could see all the posts on this side have been set.

Another angle looking toward the driveway, next step, putting up rails.

Thanks Carrie, it is amazing how excited one can get over just a fence. Ah, the simple pleasures in life.
