We’re expanding the fenced in area for the dogs. Meant to do it last summer and just ran out of time/money/energy.
Yesterday we rented a single man gas powered auger to put in the post holes. Digging one post hole by hand is fine (and infact we have one left we have to do that with due to its location), digging 10 just isn’t going to happen. And at $80 for the day I’ll take it.
The auger isn’t that heavy, less than the 50lb bags of concrete anyway. But the muscle power required to hold it on target was noticable, and it was a two person job to lift it out of each hole. Husband and I swapped out every other hole, so that the work got spread around.
Between the auger and moving the 50lb bags of concrete I hurt today. Upper body’s not TO bad, just enough to let me know I did WORK yesterday. My legs though, the thighs and knees are sure yelling at me. Guess that means I was lifting right at least……
But the fence poles are in, the fence itself is going to be 10×6 chain link “kennel panels” which should be pretty easy to actually put in, so it should go pretty quickly now. Good thing two, I have a pair of dogs who need the extra space to run around in!
