About 3 years ago I built a deck in the back yard. At the time the back yard was a hill that ran down to the back door. So I got to thinking it would be easier to move the dirt before I built the deck. That left a pile of dirt in the back yard I kept for back fill. The rest of the dirt I gave to the guy across the street. He had just the opposite of what I had. Well after 3 years Cathy told me “To get this pile of dirt out of her yard or die.”That motivated me to do something and in Auguast the hotest time of the year I started to work. As I am fond of live’n. My buddy Donny Hanson came over with his skid loader and dug the hole for the ten post in the middle (4 1/2 ft). But because of the hill could not do the others. That meant all the rest were up to me and a rock bar (rock it is). The post are 4×6. The rails are 2×10. It is 50ft in the middle by 4ft 7in tall. The sides come down 20ft and over 12ft. I worked on this for 4 weeks on weekends and after work till Iran out of light. Cathy helped me what she could hold this or that and go get things for me. She was a big help as I it was just me doing this. Any way let me know what you think. I have to go to town right now. When I get back I will post the pic of the deck that started all this and the porch that was last month’s project.
