Default halfway through my current project

I need to fine fit all the joints now and add the bare steel accents/reinforcements, but here is an entrance way to an acreage to get your attention

Dude is a rugby boss, he probably just jammed them in there. Probably had to use both hands though.

Used an auger on a skidsteer to make the holes for the 4 shorter poles. The smallest ones up the driveway, I just tipped up in the holes. The taller ones at the front of the structure I tipped into the holes with the skidsteer. Concreted them in place. Then used a mini-excavator to dig the holes for the tall and double poles. Because of the height, the holes have to be deeper. Then had a crane come in and lower those four into the hole, and hold them plumb while I braced them back to the already concreted in poles. Then concreted in those four poles. Then had to carve all the saddles into the various poles - the fun ones being tallest ones, since the ground isn't level, and the scaffolding has a lean to it. Today, had the crane come back and sit the three cross pieces into place.

Now I have to clean up the saddles and improve the fit, put corner braces in the top corners, bend steel straps to fit the assorted connection points, seal said connection points to water proof them, and put the fence rails around the bottom. Next spring I have to make a set of large gates, and replace the page wire with wooden rail fence. The gates are similar to these, hung from the tall poles.
