duck yard gates

i started building the gates for the duck yard.  i will need a total of three, two for the covered part of the yard and one for the pasture area.  i got one built today but still need to staple wire to it and pick up some hinges and latches at the hardware store.
i used 2x4s with lap joints.  i've had good results building gates this way so i figured i'd stick to what works for me. 

the 4x4 gate posts are a bit twisted and bowed which means the gate opening is not exactly square so instead of building a nice square gate i built it to fit the opening.

one down, two to go.
