Hubby’s Plan to Bridge That Gap

Following on from my cringeworthy post (no more puns here, I promise), here is the almost finished fencing.

As you can imagine, the lads weren’t pleased to find themselves short, so MOH went to the garden centre and came back with a roll of screening he thought would fill the hole.
Two things wrong, it was bamboo cane not willow, and it was only 3 feet high, not 4.
He thought he could simply turn it sideways and paint it to match.
Miss Fussy here said it would look dreadful (Hubby agreed), and he should take it back for a full refund as it was unsuitable for the job.
Meanwhile, Hubby had gone to get a tape measure, pen and paper and was drawing up an alternative.

I’ve said on MANY occasions that Hubby is useful. He is also resourceful, practical, and if he does a job, he does a good one.
I am so proud!

Yes, Hubby made a custom made panel for the job with featherboards, and then stained it with the last of the tin of coloured protector already used on the corner. It is properly supported on the other side by fence posts.

Mr Houseowner is gobsmacked at the end result.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
