acreage renovation: a real clothesline

We have lived in this current house in the country for nearly 3 years. In that time, I have been using everything imaginable as a clothesline- dog leads, fences, and decks. 

Because we are constantly rearranging things around our property, we weren’t sure as to where we should build a proper clothesline. However, my pregnant state sort of decided things for us this summer. I needed somewhere that was close to the door and where it still caught all of the daylight. We settled on putting one up directly behind our house.

We had always planned on building it properly. That entailed some sort of deck and many large treated posts. That said, after Geoffrey was done with the dog run, he had a couple of smaller posts left over. Not being someone who likes to waste things, I asked him if he could build me a makeshift clothesline using only two of them. He protested (mostly because he knew the construction would be subpar), but in the end, I won. I didn’t care what it looked like, only that we had one.

So, here is our zero waste clothesline. She’s not going to win any beauty contests, but she certainly is useful.
