Thanks we won’t be doing it ourselves - it’ll be a Pool company but I was just curious! 😁

Re: Fence makeover for the pool area

Hi thank you I’m a little way off doing my pool just yet as I didn’t think they had many around that were smaller I’m after something like that one in the pic. Although I’m doing my house at the moment and it’s huge so pool will have to wait for now 😁

Best thing to do is search for "plunge pools" - plenty of options now @soloreno 

 

Obviously concrete pools give you more flexibility in finals design, size, shape, etc. Built a concrete pool myself in most recent home - much happier.

Re: Fence makeover for the pool area

Hi @ProjectPete

Newbie question: how do you secure the timber framing to the colorbond fence without having the screws popping out on the neighbour side?

I'm thinking of doing something like this but worried that the screws on the other side of the fence might be an hazard and aesthetically awful

 

Cheers

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @cesposito82. It's fantastic to have you join us, and many thanks for your question.

 

Let me mention @ProjectPete, so he is alerted to your question. Pete's goes into more detail on the fixing method in his feature fences discussion. He's mentioned previously that fixings are screwed directly into the top and bottom rail instead of the sheeting itself. The rails are thicker than the sheeting, so your screws won't penetrate the neighbour's side.

 

We'd love to follow along with your project. Please let us know if you need any assistance or would like to share it with us.
