House in Willcox (Pg 27)

While waiting for the shoulder to heal (Partial tear in the rotator cuff) and also waiting on the other window to come in I thought I might fill in the progress report with something that was done a few years ago before starting on the house. The front part of the property needed to be fenced and if it is fenced you need a big gate! Not wanting just any gate, I had to come up with something that was heavy enough, wide enough and that would not sag (I hate a sagging dragging gate). Here are some pictures of the gates, the gate posts and the latch that I built.

The gate post before and after it was set. My hired help is about 5'11" tall so you can see how deep the posts were set.
