Hot Weather, Fence Project, and a New Tower Fan

The weather is getting hotter each day although we had a  couple of days of rain but I thought it was a needed  shower for the plants before the  summer officially begins.   We have  5 more days  of Spring and  summer  will be here.  My kids have been in the  pool   for few times with their Dad and during those times, the  temperature is up to 90+ degrees.  
Between my husband's busy schedule at work, we managed to  work on our fence project  every now and then when he isn't too tired and during the weekends.  I feel bad for him but  so grateful that he  just keep on doing what he has to for his family.  Right now, our garage is a mess.  All of our fencing materials are stored there.  We started this project late in May.
We ordered the  panels  online and  assembled it  inside our garage.  The first panel took a long time as we were still figuring out how to  put it together but  it got easier as we  work on it over and over again.
We hired our two kiddos who are off from school already to stain the assembled panels and they were excited  to earn money on  their school break.  We have to keep these young fellas  busy.   

We don't have an AC  in the garage so it is  scorching hot when the temperature is above 90 degrees.  For me, I can tolerate it as  I am used to it growing up but not them.  I decided to assemble the  adjustable oscillating tower fan that Ozeri sent me for review.  We  were using a big fan there but  that one is steady and it only hit the panels which is good as it  dry it out quick.  
I thought we could use this in there while we work but  I read the instructions and it said not to use outdoors depending on the kind of  outlet you have so I did not bother plugging it there just to be safe.  
Anyway, this tower fan is very easy to put together.  I normally leave assembly job to my husband but this one I can do just fine.  The only  hard part  of this is the base as you have to  align it well to  for the other part to fit in there.  
You don't even need a tool  to do this.  I assembled it without any  screwdriver.  When you are attaching this  extension part, make sure that  the  wire  is inside it.
I love that they  also provide you with the batteries for the remote.  The remote is pretty cute too, my daughter called it a stub knob.
You don't have to  worry about  the remote being misplaced as you can store it on top of the fan.  There is a cover to the top too so   dust won't be able to  get it.
At the bottom, the wire is also  snugged in there  safely with the outlet they added onto it.  So that's about it, the Assembly is very easy and what I love about this fan is that it runs quietly unlike other fans out there.  You can get this via Amazon and it's   a great time to buy it now while it is on sale.  It is regularly priced at $129.95 but it is on 51% off sale so you will only pay $64.24 with free shipping. 
I put the tower fan at the  dining area so we could use it when we are hanging out in the dining  area.  We bought  a portable AC that cools down the  first floor but we don't turn it on  when it is not too hot so  having the fan there is great.  I have to admit, I miss having the central AC  at our old house but it is what it is, we have to sacrificed that to have a bigger house.

That tower fan is really nice. We need something like that in our finished basement. It gets really hot and muggy down there.

It's nice to see the kids involved with the wooden fence. The tower fan can come in handy on the summer months.

That's a nice fan and I like that it doesn't take up too much room. I love your new fence and I think it's great that your kids are staining the fence.

Our A/C went out a few days ago and it was awful! This fan would have come in handy! Thankfully it was an easy fix for us and it was on the next day. The heat is awful. My son needs to work on our fence this year!

I love that you involve your kids in your projects! We love our oscillating fan and I think it moves air way better than a traditional one.

I hate hot weather. I love summer but couldn't handle the heat too well. This tower fan would be useful.

Wow, your kiddos did an awesome job staining that fence! I need to get my girls involved in more projects like this!

The fence design I really love and the idea of assembling it in the garage is a great idea too. The Ozeri tower fan is something I am going to have to check out for sure. Thanks for sharing this awesome product and your great looking fence project.

That's a gorgeous fence. I love the color of it. And you couldn't have picked a better brand for your fan. I own one of their tower fans and it's wonderful.
