After three months, the gate is mostly finished and it’s just needing a few more extra touches from the initial landscape design. There are a few configuration items in the gate mechanism that still need to be addressed, but the structure and landscaping are complete and the gate mechanism is functional. We had to rent some tools and equipment for the landscaping job such as a horizontal grinder equipment to get rid of the tree stumps because of our location.
One item not installed yet is a video camera tied into the homes real-time video recording system. We’ll be able to see who is at the gate and monitor the system if necessary. I’m going to install the wireless network system to bring the home network up to the gate. You can see the red barn in the distance, I’ll mount one wireless transmitter there and another on a pole at the gate.
Here are a few pictures looking at the gate from different angles.
