Done. Finido. The fence is up. The latch I bought for the gate isn't working right. I think there is a nut that is either missing or wasn't assembled correctly. I will return it later this week. For now, though, I have locked the gate so that the dogs can't get out. They are outside barking at passers-by and whining to come back inside. (That makes it all feel "normal" again.)
There is more work to be done on the house. The siding needs to be replaced/repainted, and then there is the carpet/water damage on the first floor. But having the fence and the roof up is good for the soul. It does something psychologically knowing that people walking up and down the road can't waltz through your backyard.
I'm going to relax and take a few breathers for the rest of the weekend. On to the Super Bowl!
