Addition to a six foot privacy fence

Addition to a six foot privacy fence

Our neighbor put up an ugly six foot privacy fence so my wife designed elements to make it look better.  I made them, milling everything from treated lumber so it would match the fence.

My wife designed the rose arbor and I made it out of cypress recycled from an old water tower from Chicago.

Re: Online Reviews Can Hurt Contractors and Homeowners

I was involved in a defamation of character suit because I made negative comments about a local contractor. The comments I made were true, not even exaggerated. The truth wins in defamation cases. The problem is that it is difficult to prove and very expensive. Even tho I was right it cost me a lot of money. After two years of motions, it was settled out of court. E-mails I sent were used to make their case. I will never put anything in writing again.
