Fence Project - Day 3 & 4

Our fence Project is coming along well. I am glad that we lived in a very nice neighborhood where neighbors care for each other. Two of our neighbors volunteered to help me put up the panels of the fence. Thanks a lot men, you guys rock!

Lowe's delivered our panels last Tuesday afternoon.
Then my wife and I tried to put one up to see how hard it is do it but our neighbor Don saw us so he came over and helped me.
We got done with one side of the fence pretty quick because of him. He is a builder/carpenter so he has a lot of tools and experience in doing stuff like this. He was so kind to help us and use his tools.
The next day, he came over again and the other neighbor also helped us. Dad also came to help and my sister Chris. Right now, we are done with all the panels, me and my father built one of the gates already. All I need to do tomorrow is to make the other gate and we are done. This DIY project saved us almost 5 grand compared to the expenses if we hire a contractor.

Yes, God is so good. He touched the hearts of your neighbors to help you as well as your father and sister. 5 grand is 5 grand and there are a lot of things you can buy with it for your family. Thanks for the feel good post. God bless you all always.
