Well, we're moving at a turtle's pace, but we've gotten started on the fence. We went off last Friday and bought the wood.
Custom Cedar Products and I need to rave about their fabulous service. We went in with our drawings and a materials list. After we'd talked to a salesman for a few minutes, the owner, Chris Bilyeu, came through the lobby and started talking to us. He spent probably 40 minutes helping us and offered some great advice about what materials he would use and how he would construct it. (I was not paid or compensated for this opinion; I just wanted to share the good experience we had in case other folks in Portland were looking for fence materials.)
My dad works with cedar all the time and always stains after install! But it's probably because he's impatient to get started on projects, haha.ReplyDelete
Stain after so the stain will get inside any cuts and holes you create on the way. Good luck with the fence construction!ReplyDelete
How's that fence coming?ReplyDelete
It's raining. Haven't made any progress since the holes were dug. We need to go buy cement to set the posts.Delete
I agree about Custom Cedar Products-they are great! We had a great experience with them as well and their cedar seems superior to the big box store stuff! Good luck!ReplyDelete
