I love working with your design, and the responses I get tell me it is admired by others too!
This next two weeks will be my third bridge of your great design.
Oh! And thanks for (ALL) the help with my many (silly) questions.

Hi Frank
Attached are a couple of pictures of my 15' bridge that we purchased back in Oct. The results are great and we are very happy with the bridge.
All the neighbours have commented on how nice it looks and one of them is even wanting to get one for himself!
I'll send you some more pictures in the spring when things green up and it will look even nicer.

Dear Frank,
Sorry to be so slow about getting pictures to you of the bridge that my husband and I made for our pond. He did make some changes to the pattern we took from your site. We enjoy it and so do the Grandkids.

Mr. Petersohn,
Thank you for making your plans available.
I made this bridge last summer. Once I started, it was amazing how simple the design is to build!
It is a 2x4 15' bench to bench, approx 21' overall. I was going to make it 5' wide but the 5/4 decking mat'l was too flimsy. I went 4' with 5' decking. Thanks again,

Thanks Frank,
thanks for the advice. I built the bridge and had no troubles at all. Very simple design and it looks great. All the neighbors like it too.

It spans a 4 foot creek and another 8 feet of rough land. I built it so I could drive my lawn tractor over the creek instead of driving all the way around.
(now if I can get my wife to finish painting it!!!)

Still have a few things to add, but it's up and standing! I REALLY appreciate all of your help and patience! I made a few little mistakes here and there, but they are mostly cosmetic and was able to fix them without too much trouble.

Obviously couldn't have done it without your plans and your personal help. I'd do it again in a minute. As always, now I know a few things that would have made it much easier and faster. I think they call that experience ;>)

It's a fascinating design that seems to combine the attributes of visually appealing and scalable, while still being simple in concept. I wish I could come up with those kind of designs.

I sure hope that you are able to profit well considering the amount of information and help you provide for people freely.

I certainly appreciate greatly the information and help I've gotten from you!
Thanks again and all my appreciation!

As promised, attached are some pictures of the 15' 2x4 bridge I'd built using your plans. The lawn tractor manages the grade just fine.

I thought the least I could do was share some pictures of the end result which is terrific!
Many thanks for sharing your plans and all of your assistance!
