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.
