Making a case for expert helpIn the back of my new office location, we have a patio area. I'm not talking about restaurant quality looks here (at least not yet). It's approximately 700 square feet of somewhat uneven pavement with an opening in the wood fence where a gate should be.
I've been talking about mending that fence and installing a gate by myself for a good long while. The problem with my last statement is how long we've been waiting for me to get to it. It's not that I'm lazy but there seems to always be a bigger task ahead of fence repair for me.
Well, I pulled the trigger and gave the work to an expert instead of doing it myself. How do I know he's an expert? Well, I did from time to time go into the back area of my offices to see how the work was coming. The methods he employed were far beyond anything I would have devised and I feel fairly sure that my effort at gate building would have generated a product which would have been uneven and rickety.
Now I have a secured area where I may put a little BBQ grill and perhaps some cheapo chairs and table. I had previously paid a guy some months back to remove the trash which had accumulated in the patio area over many, many years (not my trash but previous tenants). There was so much trash that it took him two days to fully remove.
Today, I need to buy a lock for the gate and then begin to enjoy the benefits of what I paid for. And you know what? I couldn't be happier with the result.
