More Fence

This fence project has been a long time coming. I'm not even sure how long, but it at least has been a couple years. It is a huge project, requiring a lot of time and effort, and to exacerbate matters, the next door neighbors have a dog. The faster everything could be done, the better. 

This is some preparation work some weeks prior to the fence demo. Chris initiated a morning of Fence Prep so that the actual day would run smoother.

Then, the day arrived!

Demoing the fence turned out to be  fairly straightforward. They had a different procedure for tearing down the boards, so we were able to take it down huge slates at a time. Nate, Ben and I were able to do most of that in half an hour.

Then came the auger.

That thing is a beast!!

Two of the guys would start on a hole, and just watching them made you hurt. Absolutely back breaking work. Sometimes it would get so heavy that they had to call all hands on deck and have four of them man the machine. These guys are a hardworking bunch!! It was not for the faint of heart.

And all the while, Riley watched, fascinated by the power tools and signing 'more, more, more...'

I'm not sure how the men felt about appeasing her wishes.
