It’s our second last day and we are almost there! Even though it’s volunteer day today, we are still very productive. We finished attaching all the chain links to the bottom frame by steel bars. Now the fence walls were straight and tight. For the ground, both side wood edges were assembled and sealed by clay. The middle ground was spread with black sheet and covered by a lay of rocks. Everything was almost done and we looked forward to Friday, the finish day!
It is a long and productive day! Since the interior vertical framing of the wood wall is already attached to the steel posts, We nailed horizontal wood pieces on both side with perfect level. For the chain link walls, we attached free hanging chain links to the bottom frame members with steel bars. We also dig ditches along inside edges of chapel and assembled one side of the wood edge fixed by vertical steel bars so far. There is still some work left, but we are almost there!
This proved to be a very productive Saturday for us! With the other wall secured the remaining concrete footings were able to be poured. The wood wall posts were all cut down to the same height and the cedar boards cut to the right lengths. The interior vertical framing of the wood wall is now attached to the steel posts. It is perfectly level and ready for the horizontal pieces to be added!
The chain-link panels were cut and hung. We had an exciting discovery when the chain-link was attached to the top, but still hanging free on the bottom there were a few panels angled back creating “gills” that opened up at the back. We took a vote and decided these “gills” added to our design and concept, so we cut two new posts that were a little longer to make it happen!
There is still lots to do, but things are really coming together!
