Picket Fence #DIYproject

My husband's initial plan was to put fence  just around the back porch but  I thought  that it would be easier and less expensive  if we include the  concrete side of our backyard since we would need less material.  The  challenge he had was that he didn't know  how to put  a fence post on a concrete.  I told him that we will figure it out and he did.  
By having a picket fence attached to the side of the garage, we can let our  dogs  without  worry that they would ran out and wander around the neighborhood.  I mean it is easier to let them out  and I am glad that he agreed with me because  our backyard looks a lot bigger for the kids and  fur babies to run around to.
 He used his  special  tool to  make  specific cuts for the posts.
 The picket fence comes in a kits also so we  put  it together when it arrived.
We used a metal post holder for the posts.  His buddy at work lent him  a drill for the  screw.  He tried doing it manually but it was taking so long to make the hole so I am grateful that his friend  lend us his tools.
Our fence project took us a long time to finish but I am really satisfied how it turned out.  Our neighbors are complimenting us for  doing it by ourselves and we even had a guy who was visiting our neighbor's house came and  asked us where we got the  fencing that we had, he said it looks beautiful.  I told my husband that we should do this for a living lol.  It was  fun doing it with my husband and our kids helped us a lot too.

Your fence looks fabulous! My husband and I may not always find pleasure in conquering around the house tasks, but we certainly feel accomplished once everything is complete.

What an easy way to get your picket fence up. I need to have more fences here, I love them. I think they add a special appearance to your home where it just looks more "homey"!

I think this looks really nice! The hard work paid off. It's really cool that you were able to do this yourselves.

You guys did a great job. I've always loved a fenced in yard. It looks more appealing.

Wise move! You dogs can now spend some time outside and you know they'll stay within your property. The picket fence looks lovely. I love the color!

You guys did a great job! If I tried to do this I don't think it would turn out this good!

We have a picket fence similar yours that blocks off our garden from our yard. I don't think my husband installed it correctly because it is coming apart at places. I need to show him this post when he repairs it when the weather cools a bit in Texas.

I am in love with fences. My dream house is to have some kind of this fence too. I will fill it with many plants as well to make it more beautiful and refreshing to the eyes.

THat looks so good. I've always wanted to have a little cottage with a picket fence but this would be just as good.
