Fence (3)

The front of our property,
bordering with the barangay road

This is a picture show of the building of the front fence, as part of phase 1 of the fence building. Phase 2 has started already and I will report about it in a next blog early next year.

Period: 28 October to 1 December, so 4+ weeks.
