Corners of Our Home 25

more work on the front entrance

new fence

trying to establish a courtyard feel - and provide the front of the house with a bit more privacy. (another view here.)

it ties in with the fence d put in front of the carport.

playing a lot of catch-up this week. hope to be working in the garden all weekend long...

enjoy yours!

Your home is gorgeous. You must be having so much fun renovating -the original house has such "good bones".
All of your interventions really seem to compliment the original while still standing out as fresh and modern.

I think this is the third time I've done a screen shot of your fences. I'm simply obsessed with their horizontal, modern vibe. I must have horizontal fences. Where did you get the metal fence posts and were they hard to construct?

tracy said...

thanks all.
blair - the mobile is from ikea
amy - the aluminium posts are from home depot, but you should be able to get them from any lumberyard or fencing distributor. it was somewhat labour intensive, but not difficult. (oh - the redwood is attached with sp. alumumium screws - i believe that this is important!)

i love it!
and that mobile is great
(no doubt that it's one of your many fantasic creations)

oops amy. i stand corrected. d just informed me that he misunderstood my query - and that these posts came from a place called "Industrial Metals" and not the depot. sorry!
