I was out the door at dawn to shop at Lowes while it was relatively empty (and it was). I had a printout in my pocket for a 4' wide 6' tall silver gate panel listed on the web site (that I was going to have to paint black), but instead found a 3'5" wide by 5' tall black painted gate panel that will work just as well. It didn't look like the gate had a sales barcode so I took a photo of the price above that bay on that aisle. When I got to the register the SKU wasn't coming up but one similar in her register that was $45 higher. I got this one for the price in my photo - they had three of them, so I could have bought two and made the double gate I want, and I still may, but I now need to look at the hardware involved. It's time to check into YouTube fence and gate videos.
This run was just before the rain started. We could use a good soak, and it's supposed to clear tomorrow. Today I'll paint on the wood preservative on the stack of pickets (on the garage floor) and be ready to put them up tomorrow. And tie in the new part of fence where the gate will go. I'm looking forward to the day when the dogs can get a look at the driveway and that side of the house as far as my barking at strangers security system. That's one of the reasons I have dogs (aside from their company, of course - and now that it's a rainy day they all smell like wet dogs and I've had the big towel out to dry them off once already).
