It’s been a while since I’ve been able to update OPJ as we’ve had a few problems with the computer.
Not a lot has been happening at home as we’ve all been so busy lately but we have been slowly working on a small retaining wall and picket fence out the front of the house.
We drove around our suburb and some of the surrounding suburbs to have a look at all the different types of ‘traditional’ fences and to get some ideas. The one we were replacing was a picket fence and we were keen to build something similar.
From our observations from looking at the houses around us etc.. it seemed that colonial style is very popular here in Brisbane but after lots of hemming and hawing we decided to have a go at making our own ‘pointy’ picket.
We’re now waiting to get a permit from the Brisbane City Council for carport. Unfortunately due to the size of our block of land it will only be a single carport but it’s better than nothing!!
