Gate Repair & Kayak Storage

This week I have a two for one project. I have a kayak that I store in my back yard but I wasn’t very keen on the idea of leaving it on the ground for critters and snakes to crawl into. I also had a problem with the gate to my back yard which was poorly constructed and in need of repair.

The big problem with the gate was the way it sagged out of parallel and scraped the ground. It was hinged to swing into the uphill slope of the land as well which was quite annoying. When I moved in I had to put up some high fencing to keep my three chickens in the back yard and I did this in a bit of a hurry without extending the gate upward as well. This meant I had to duck under the fencing each time I wanted to enter the yard through the gate!!

So I set forth with my tools, some lumber and a bit of know how with the goal of fixing the gate and finding a way to store my kayak up off the ground. As usual, my solutions were simple ones as you’ll see in this week’s video.

Keep on hackin!
