Documenting the progress and remaining steps to finishing the front gate.
All wood slats are cut and stacked in the back wrapped with yellow caution tape.
They slot into the gate and should fit pretty snug. Some of them may need to be cut down a couple MM to get it to size. The rest can be fitted in with a mallet.
There are three of these pieces sitting near the welder (thanks to @reilytech). We need about 5 more. And they need to be welded to the bottom of the gate, and wall facing edge.
And we’ll need some of these to screw the gate down: concrete screws
Actual brand may vary. @JD would know the best variety.
Make sure to wash down the gate with some soapy water first. The paint won’t stick well to the oily metal.
This one is important! Before adding the wood slats, the metal should be painted flat white with the white primer under the outdoor table. And then given a coat of rust proof enamel paint
Pay attention to painting the bottom as well (perhaps multiple coats) as this will get hit by more water.
Fit the wooden slats into place and give the outside facing portion another coat of primer.
Add a cool mural to the outside, before it gets too trashed.
On some portion of the new gate we should install a through-wall mailbox.
