    Doing something I could not do too much of in Thailand, putting my old carpentry skills to use. We had a chain link front fence that gave us little privacy so I decided to build a new treated pine fence. I decided to build it myself after getting an outrageous quote from a company to build one. It's nearly finished and I will put up the gates today after I assemble them.

    They did not skimp on cement for those old poles. Did you get them out your self? Anyway nice job. I have ARC mesh fences in Darwin. I have never thought the need for a privacy screen.
    I have always been of the thought more open the better. All you do is create a privacy screen for thieves, they love it. You would know that. But I guess where you are the crime rate is low, as it is hard to burgle from a mobility scooter. :p Its not called "Gods waiting room" for nothing.

    I know, couldn't believe the amount of concrete and depth of the old posts. I didn't dismantle it myself, I advertised it on a local Facebook buy and sell page as free if you remove it, had a bit of interest, all from people with chooks!

    The old fence kept one out one day, a part aboriginal lout wanted to "fucken kill me" after I filmed him and his mates unlawfully on the property opposite. His mates had to hold him back he was fuming, the new fence will stop me from seeing bad people doing bad things, I seem to have a sixth sense for noticing things like that.
