We had a rusty old chain link fence and gate between our house and the neighbor’s that was handy for keeping friend’s dogs and young children in, but did little else except define an area. Aesthetically pleasing? Hardly. Our friend Gail made a concept drawing of some gates for our backyard, and we were thrilled with it.

I helped with cutting metal, grinding and some welding. Gail did the bending, shaping, placing and more welding. Together we completed the project in about a week, working my kind of hours ( 9:00 until lunch).  Yesterday I installed the gates, using cedar posts for support.

Needless to say, the thrill we felt upon first seeing Gail’s design has been greatly superseded by the gates themselves. We think they are a stunning addition to our backyard patio.
