This weekend we actually were able to follow through on our goal. We 'finished' the arbor and gate and could not be happier. We added the house numbers to the arbor tonight, and will be eventually adding matching house numbers to the house once the trim is back on the front door. I want to center the house numbers above the front door. Thomas leveling the posts Building the gates The view from the outside looking in And finally, a picture of the front door (it matches the back door) As for the arbor, we plan on adding some 2x4s at the top to make it more 'Craftsman'. For now, it is finished and we are very happy to have a complete fence and gate in the front. Our next goal is to work on the mailbox and get it set up. It will be next to the arbor, and will allow the mailman to drop mail off without coming up our porch.
