I’ve been waiting for this one!!

Sometimes there are projects that get off to a bad start and are plagued from then on. No matter what you do, no matter how careful you are, things just don’t go right. Well this gate has been that way. It started with the first few cuts and drawing that was read wrong. After ordering more steel and building a beautiful gate, we sent it off to get powder coated. On the way back from picking up the gate a strap on the trailer broke and scratched up the paint. So we sandblasted the gate, re-prepped it for paint. Sent if off again, only to have some weird blistering pop up with the paint. I won’t get into the rest of the issues but, this gate took way longer than it should have and I have to say “thanks” to the client for his patience. In the end, the gate turned out beautiful. Enjoy the pics!

Here’s a few shots of a little landscaping job we did. The homeowners did a great job of all the stone work and we just added a small touch of steel to tie it all together.
