                                 Building Our House in the Caribbean

                                                                                     Step 68 - Front Gate Fix Up
                           Clada spent about 40 hours sanding and painting the gate to our housing area private road.  
                      Then Chip removed all of the all faded plastic security signs.  Clada patched and painted the pillars
                      and made two new mosaic signs for them.  
Just think...we installed the aluminum gate 3 or 4 years ago,
                      and it already needed to be sanded and repainted.  Salty air is sooooo corrosive.

                    This is how the address sign progressed.  This is the first time Clada worked with triangles as a background.

           Clada made a second sign after one of her palms was knocked down by someone who turned around in the drive way.

                               The gate looks a lot better since it was sanded, patched, painted, and new lighting installed.
