How much should I expect to pay for an iron fence with electric gate for the front yard? We're talking roughly 80 feet across.

Probably at least $600-$800 with that electric gate

No. That was materials. That electric gate will be the bulk of it. With install I'm guessing $1800-$2000

Yeah that’s gonna be pricey.

To be clear Ruddo are you quoting that in dollars or pesos?

Still less than I expected. I've been putting it off for so long because I feel like I'd need to take out a loan, and I ain't about that. The time is nigh after that dog escape scare in Austin, though.

But if you are just going across the front, is it connecting to two side fences? Otherwise I'm confuse as to how it will keep the dog in.

not knowing your budget or particular needs, i'd recommend you go full-on Mr. Burns

a wrought-iron fence like that with a gate around here would set you back about $5-$7.5 grand.

Unfinished drywall in garage. I want to paint it. Will it turn out halfway decent without a coat of primer first?

I need to cover my pipes for this freeze, which I have little experience doing. Supposed to get in the teens by Tuesday.

I have a pier and beam foundation. Do I need to do anything under the crawl space? Doesn't seem like I would need to, but figured I'd ask.

Any exposed pipes under your house with a crawl space theoretically are already insulated. So just your outside faucets. If I don’t have any of those foam covers laying around I just wrap an old towel or shirt around them.

Yeah, I'm just doing bar towels and duct tape.

Damn, I guess I have to cover the pipes at the bar before we close too.

How about the whole, leave the sink cabinets open and trickle water overnight bit? Worth the hassle? It's going to get into the 20s and teens for a couple of days here. One thing I've got going is that it's an 80-year old house and the poor insulation will probably mean the heat from inside will seep out and warm the pipes...right?

slight drip on the faucet is key

keeps the water flowing which significantly reduces the risk of freezing
