Wanted: fencing bloke

By emd - 13 June 2007 19

I need a new gate for the back yard. Don’t care if it’s wooden or metal, but must be able to keep curious toddlers and stupid chooks in, and neighbourhood dogs out. Plain is good, cheap is better. Woden area.

DIY is not an option as I am a big fat pregnant heifer, and the blokes in my life have better things to do than fulfil my nesting urges.

Any recommendations on who I can call for quotes?

What’s Your opinion?

Well Emma, you now know why my keyboard is sticky.

But just a warning luv, your defence email address is visible. Better cover up now.

Dear emd
you can have mine, he’s a welder too!!

Ah. If only I’d known you in my distant youth, when I wielded foil, epee and sabre with little style but great enthusiasm, wearing an embarrassing top that tied from the sides and the .. umm … up inner-leg region. And a sweaty faceguard with what looked like heavy duty flymesh. We looked so COOL!
For that is what fencing will always be to me.
Seriously, though, try Ken at Custom Home and Garden Maintenance.

Pandy, you’re a wanker and you should learn some basic reading comprehension skills.

I also prefer “quitte”, I’m sure it would go down well with Canberra’s latte set.

Personally I think changing it to “quittë” would be preferred, Mael.

Maelinar 7:29 pm 13 Jun 07

Would the entire world changing Quit to ‘Kwit’ help people out ?

I’d recommend Jim’s fencing, the Tuggeranong area guy except he recently quite and is now Jim’s Painting.

Need fence builder too – so the bogans below my fence will let their chain-mad dog off to roam the yard! She’s chained all and every day because there are holes in the fence. Thanks for reminding me emd, and I’ll keep an eye on the replies!

emd (how is defence these days?) I why does your husband not know how to use his tools?

BTW I know lots of men who are piss poor maintenance.

Better to do one thing well than many things poorly.

Being a master of one thing, is usually at the sacrifice of another.

apehammer, there have been frequent discussions on RA about “where’s the best fish n chips” or “where’s the best hairdresser”. All I want to know is “where’s the best fencing bloke”.

bonfire – he’s capable, just too busy chasing the rest of the kids to build a gate. I blame lack of good TV programming for our situation. Although I can’t say I’m disappointed 🙂

you need a new husband – if he is incapable of installing a gate, you are facing a life of endless disappointment.

Sorry to sound like a stick in the mud, but when did RiotACT become a classifieds forum?

From memory…”Steve & Johns Fencing” out of Qbn. Good job, cheap rates.
