Okay, being easily amused today.


All done. *pats the beautiful new fence* 3500 square feet of fence between me and the neighbors. All 7' tall and 50' wide of it. So tall! So beautiful! Only six hours!

I was afraid that having the fence grow by almost two feet would make the yard feel dwarfed and squashed. But noooo, it actually feels bigger now!

There will be pictures later. There may even be a "see my lovely new fence!" party forthcoming.

"A loverly Fence" party sounds like a winner to me. We will help bring refreshments. Pie even.

Fence party? Really? I'll bring the *looks around* sparkling cider? Eggrolls. Oh, healthier springrolls.

Actually posting to say your Hippo shoes remind me of Hipporit because that's the only way I can remember his name. Always forget the last part.

Awesomeness of fence-like proportions!

Please pass along the name of the company you had do it. It'll be painful for the pocketbook, but I should have the info for later.

I am quite amused that you are so excited about your new fence. Perhaps before and after pictures will help me understand better? Either way though, yay that you got the new fence! ^_^

It's largely a height thing. (Bigger, in this case, is better.) Consider the following:

- The old fence was 5'4" tall.

- I'm 5'4" tall.

- My house has a crawl space that lifts it ~18" off the ground.

- Two nice young guys live in the room opposite my bedroom.

I'm enjoying not feeling exposed to the prying eyes of my neighbors all the time. Plus the new fence somehow makes the yard look longer, which is nice. (It may have to do with having all the junk cleared away from it.) I'd been wanting to get it replaced for years, but thought it would cost $6k, so I'd been putting off even getting it costed out. Now I know better: get an estimate, so at least one has a concrete idea of what they're looking at price-wise.
