    I don't even know why, but I am crying. This video was amazing. I live in Canada, but originally from Zambia, where all my family still live. My dad welds fences, frames, bars, you name it, he will make it. I can only imagine all the things I would have had him help me build if he lived closer. Your dad is amazing and he did such a great job helping you get the yard cleaned up as well as making the fence.

      Crazy. I was thinking the same thing. If only I had a house to work on, I'd call my dad over to San Antonio from New York, my mom too and we would have a blast building my first home.

    I absolutely love all the incredibly strong work ethic you and your family have. Creating a beautiful home isn't just buying everything new and have contractors do all the work. Your home is a testimony to hard work, family support, canny shopping, creativity, re-using vintage pieces and designing a space that you and Romeo will love and cherish forever. It's certainly inspiring following your amazing journey.

    The fence looks amazing! Just be careful of the soil when it comes time to plant anything! We painted our house over a decade ago and some of the paint got in the soil in a small ~5’x2’ area. Even 10 years later, we haven’t been able to plant anything there - everything dies within a year just in that one 5’x2’ patch where the paint got! You may want to just replace the soil around the fence before planting anything since I know you wanted flowers planted in front of the fence ☺️

    I am so impressed with how this fence came together. The thought that went into its design, the fact that your workers had more time to put in the posts, and the fact that your dad could weld it together for you! It seems like this project was one that came together easily or at least nicely. Your dad is such a hard worker and it's so great that he has all these skills and the equipment to help you.

    You were absolutely right about the black making the fence disappear. There was one point during the video when you were painting the black over the white primer and as a viewer I could see it happen before my eyes. Looks really pretty. Not gonna lie I was thinking it might be too modern, but with the adjustment on the bottom it’s perfect! You have such an amazing eye.
