Photos of Naturist Legacy's early success
24. Building the fence that would enclose the new swimming pool
In late March, I applied for a building
(a public record) from the RM
for our swimming pool, a splash deck and the fencing
that would enclose the pool area (see the Pool
). Three sides of this fence were to be permanent chain link
while the fourth side was to be a temporary wood fence that would eventually
be replaced by the south wall of the yet-to-be-built clubhouse. My wife
and I began site preparation by removing trees and stumps to make way for
the new fence and pool. We built the wood fence first. I hand selected
and hauled all of the treated lumber from Winnipeg
to Naturist Legacy Park. It took us several days to set the nine posts
and then attach rails and fence boards. In mid-April, a member with a truck
and large trailer hauled a load of chain link fencing, posts and rails
to the park. Another member had by this time crafted a special auger that
we would use to dig holes for the metal fence posts. After I plotted their
precise locations, a fellow member helped me dig holes and carefully set
the posts (we would leave one section open for excavation equipment to
access the pool site). Post tops and rails were then added. With these
steps now done, I and several other members worked together to unroll,
size, tension and then attach the actual chain link fencing. The last job
was to hang the gates. The completed enclosure was 60 feet wide by 64 feet
long. The fence was a minimum of six feet high to comply with
for swimming pool enclosures.
