The Building Construction Process Explained

If you want to learn about the construction process and the steps that are taken to complete a project, you should read my blog. My name is Darren White and I've always been fascinated by the way that a construction crew can erect a building so fast. I work in an industrial park and there's always new buildings being built and I see the progress every day. A few months ago, I was at a neighborhood picnic and I started talking to a neighbor that lived down the street. It just so happened that he was a contractor that worked on the buildings in the industrial park. I asked him how the construction crew could build a huge building so quickly and he explained the whole process to me. That's when I had the idea to write a blog to explain the building process to others who are also interested.

Decorating Your Wood Fence For The Holidays

by Edwin Johnston

After having a new wood fence installed around your property, decorating it for the holidays is a great way to showcase the work you had done. Decorating will make your home look festive and exciting. Your neighbors will look at your house in awe and may be inspired enough to start adding some decorations to their own properties. Here are some ideas that you can use to decorate your wood fence for the holidays:

Start At The Top

Buy some sparkly garland in red, green, gold, or silver. You can string the garland from the top of your fence, attaching it to every fourth or fifth picket. When figuring out how much to allow the loops to drape down, try to keep them uniform so that the fence will look pleasing and not haphazard.

You can continue to drape the garland all around the fencing, or you could stick to just decorating the fence in front of your home. After you have put one color up, use another color but stagger the loops so that they are not copying the first color you used.

Using Holiday Ornaments

You can use plastic ornaments that you have purchased to hang on your fence. Hang on each side of each garland loop with a green hook so they are not noticed. If you really want to do something to attract attention, write each neighbor's name on an ornament with a silver permanent marker. Imagine the school children walking past your home to catch the bus to see their name on an ornament! You can hang candy canes from the garland, as well. You may want to send a small note with your holiday greeting card telling your neighbor to walk on past and grab their gift from you.

Add Some Lighting

Decorations are not the same without festive lights. String lights along the top of your fence. Purchase a few floodlights and set them up so they face the front of your fence. Trace some holiday cookie cutters onto black construction paper and use a utility knife to cut out the pattern. Cut the perimeter of the paper to fit over the front of the floodlight and tape over the LED light bulb.

Plug each flood light and the blinking lights into a power strip and use an extension cord so that you can plug them into your home. Your fence will be lit up with white holiday characters and symbols when the floodlights are turned on. The twinkling colored lights will help set the mood. Play some light holiday music outside to help enhance the mood even further.
