I have been trying to find a handy person to build a back fence. It's the back section that would attach to the two side sections and make the yard enclosed. It's only 16' wide. It only needs two fence posts - one at either side of the gate. I got an estimate from a local big box hardware store: $1,074.97 tax in. I haven't heard back from any of the handymen I have contacted.

Well, a friend posted on FB that she was looking for work and mentioned she can do home renos, so I asked if she could build a fence. She came by today and said she figures it will take her 4-5 hours. I will be paying for the $100 or so of materials. We are having an argument about her hourly rate. She only wants to charge $15/hour and I find that unreasonably low.

She's coming on Thursday to build it. w00t! If we are happy with the fence, I will ask her to fix the ceiling in the living room and some other stuff. She told me that she would really much rather do this kind of work, than work in an office.

That's wonderful TL!! Tell her she gets your preferred hourly wage or $10 cdn more an hour...her choice (i.e. $20 OR $30/hour).

Wrestling is back as an Olympic sport! It beat out squash and softball, which I'm pretty sure weren't part of the original games!

I did not understand why it was dropped in the first place. It will we back in 2020. There re so many events more worthy of being dropped.
