Then, a client dropping their dog came.
The first post is right where the main gate opens at the moment. I couldn't open the gate more than a few feet! I was laughing so hard at my blunder. Why didn't I think of THAT??? This is why I should never be left alone to build anything. I just don't think of all the eventualities.
Luckily, the gate also swung outwards, so I can still let clients come and go until I get the gates in their new homes.
