The New Gate

Our new gate is up.  Keith got it from the steel company who made it for us, and hung it a week ago.  For five years we had had to drive clear out on the gravel road to get out and shut the gate behind us... and many times were a target for people speeding on our country road.  We always worried that someone would be distracted and plow into us.  Keith began working in earnest this fall, and got the framework up, and about ten days ago, the gate came home.

He had to put the hinges on and some other customizations... so that the dogs could not get out

Ooops... liquid refreshment in this picture

Once the refinements were done, the gate was hung...

You can see the old red gate still hung... the hinges are almost one with the wood, so it will be a while (warmer) before it gets taken down.  But we are able to pull the truck and the car off the road safely to open and close the gate, that's what matters.

  1. What a great thing to check off your to do list. Safety must come first right?

    Wishing you all a Happy New Year!
