These look great. How did you fix that frame to the colourbond? Just screws, or bolts? A bit hard to see in the photo.
Also, what is the frame resting on? Looks like some more timber? And what did you do to waterproof the bottom of the frame? Did you add drainage holes in case water gets in some how?
Also, how did you make the wall behind the Cactus? Is that a frame with Fibre Cement Sheets? Is it rendered, or texture paint? Thanks
Hope this helps 😀
Do you have any concerns about the additional weight on the fences? I was trying to convince my mother to do something like this at her house and described how I would fix the frame. I had presumed the frame and cladding weight was supported from the ground, and they were merely pinned back against the fence. She was concerned that might not be great for the fence, but you're saying the entire weight is born by the fence? Even I'm surprised by that, but I trust your expertise.
Either way that's great to hear, as once I explain how you actually constructed it I'm sure she'll be happy with me just pinning them back to the fence for extra security.
That's really helpful
I assume you ran some hardiflex along the top as well. How did you seal where the two hardiflex sheets meet, and how did you sell between the top and the colourbond fence, or did you not seal that part and it's be fine that water gets inside the frame due to the corrugated profile it's resting against?
I've never had an issue with affecting the structural integrity of the fencing @MitchellMc . The first one I did was about 5 or so years ago and it's still standing strong and true.
