We made the gate from a tree here on our property which we milled lumber from last summer. Made the gate and waited for a good day to get it installed. The photo above is putting the finishing touches on installation. From a tree to a gate, and it didn't cost a penny as I could use the hardware from the prior gate that had worn out.
So while we wait for the next snow storm to arrive day after tomorrow we took full advantage of the glorious weather today to get a new gate installed. We haven't received our usual 3-4' of snow at one time yet, so maybe this week will be the BIG one.
It was nice to finally be able to get out the folding lawn chairs and sit outside on the deck for a while today. Pretty nice break in the weather and we took full advantage of the nice change.
