I finally completed the back gate for the studio. The new gate includes a passenger door for ease of entry when not driving in. This is the main entrance for the downstairs studio. The two gates also swing open to allow a truck/vehicle to drive through if loading or unloading.
I have welded in the past, but this was the heaviest functional piece I’ve ever put together. At times I felt overwhelmed, and the fact that I couldn’t move any of it on my own made working on it difficult. But, I stuck with it and hired help for the installation and I’m pleased with the outcome.
I had to add some diagonals, as the weight of each panel causes even the tightest weld to shift. The overall dimensions are 15’ wide x 8’ tall.
