In keeping with my no money/frugal theme, I will be building it myself, with help from my family, mainly my dad and brother. The weekend just gone, I had a fence painting working bee with family and friends and we managed to get half the fence painted and put up. As the saying goes, many hands make light work. It only took six people about 6 hours to paint the posts, rails and 250 fence palings (front and back). There's still another 250 to paint and put up, which I'll have to find time for.
Here are a few progress pictures of the whole process...

My grandfather was a builder before he retired a few years ago, so he really enjoyed the weekend.
I'm very grateful for the help I received from my family and friends. It would have taken a very long time to do it on my own.
