This continues our report about a winter project for our construction and groundskeeping crew and volunteers, the renovation of the East Foundry Apartment access and surrounding landscape [see posts from 12/16, 12/18, 12/20, 12/23, 12/27, 12/30/2013 and from 1/3 to 1/20/2014].

Fence posts and railings have been welded into place. The fence itself will be steel mesh.

Ron and Isaac cut and prepared the sheets of mesh in the welding shop.

The steel mesh is to be welded suspended from the railing. Ron is using wooden spacers for the right distance.

Here you can see one of the welded spacers.

Part of the fence is on a slope and Ron is puzzling out how to adopt the fence grid to the slope.

More to come.
