A Great Backyard Physiotherapy Project

Roof Sheeting time.  Thank you SM Installs in Melbourne for delivering these for me.

Step 7 Flower Beds and Fencing

Now that the roof of the part of my backyard physiotherapy project was up, I could really get to work.  The space between the gazebo and the fence looked ugly so I came up with the idea to make flower boxes.

Making the frame.  Remember that old fence I mentioned earlier?  Part of the pailing was used for the storage room/cabin, the rest I put aside.  What I had left wasn’t enough, so I put in another phone call to my cousin to ask for another hardwood fence.

But all he was removing was treated pine for the next 2 months. So I looked through the local paper for other fence builders and found someone who had a hardwood fence coming down in a week’s time.  He would drop it off for free on the condition that I took the whole lot.  DONE. Redgum posts and all.

Come rain, hail or shine, the roof was up so the work continued underneath. All the wood from the fence I couldn’t use on the job was used in a fire pit right next to me (an old BBQ that was rusted and had holes in it…. but worked well to light a small fire to keep me warm).

Now that didn’t come out too bad.  Actually, it came out better than I thought it would.  I made some compartments for bits and pieces that we might need when hosting a party, or for the backyard.  I eventually put the places in another container with a towel over the top to keep them clean from dust when not hosting a party.  Another compartment for alcohol and drinks and then glassware.

When it’s all closed up, everything is concealed. I filled the top with pots & pots of orchids.
