rear fence plan

I did the ‘call before you dig’ (or now they call it ‘click before you dig’) and hung up my permit notices.  I marked the proposed fence line with marker paint.

Of course, this line will likely change, depending on the utility location markers when they come to mark, the tenant(s), Floyd’s advice, and my ongoing vision for the place.  It will change the rear entrance pathway for the guys in the house and the rear tenant’s entrance.

I’m still a little undecided on where the fence should be.  Originally, I envisioned a motorized sliding gate, keeping vehicles inside the fence line.

The neighbour down the alley has this fence.  It looks like it has been disused for some time.

This project will likely prove to be too complicated and costly.  So best go with an ordinary fence inside the property with the vehicles outside.

dead as a doorbell

The doorbell quit!  But I know why.  It was a clearance item at Rona.  When I installed it, I knew the button was sticky.  So when someone pushed it, it activated the doorbell and ran forever until the thing died.  Was it the transformer or the chime?  Hard to say.  But I replaced it all anyway.


In retrospect, sale items are not always a good purchase.
