Finished side fence

There's only two weeks to go before excavation commences for our pool. Our builder has supplied our plans, we've a quote for pool fencing and several quotes for the coping and paving. Shortly we'll be meeting with our landscaper.

To meet the local pool regulations, we had to put sloping tops on our posts to extend them to the height of the rest of the fence. This required a few hours with clamps and a circular saw and grateful assistance from a friend with a well equipped workshop. I then attached them to the posts.

Last weekend we finished painting the side fence - it looks great now that it has a second coat. We used an exterior paint, with the first coat mixed with about ten percent water. It looks much better.
