However, virtually all the fence boards we pulled off were basically rotten. Hint: If you're building a fence using non-pressure treated lumber, you gotta paint the thing.
We are now essentially ready for the big work. The current project schedule says 8 weeks with a finish around Sept 16. Let's see how well it goes.
