Homer builds gates for Gitte & Clay

Homer built gates over the winter, and had a chance to install this week. The gates are made from cedar and finished with a marine grade finish. It used to be that varnish could go onto cedar and last 20 years before needing to be reapplied. Now, if varnish went onto this in 1 year time it would flake off the gate. They guess it is a result of the reduction of the ozone layer.

 Here is the spot where the gates go in..a beautiful home in Chevy Chase. MD. The homeowners had their backyard terraced and landscaped, the front yard too. Now the gates go in, shutters in a couple of weeks and then comes the new driveway.

And here are the during photo:

Homer had to chisel out space for the hook where the latch will rest. The homeowners will get a finish on was an unanticipated field change!

and after:

I must admit, I have gate envy..they are just beautiful!
