I never liked the loop fence but will improvise ....keep the structure and redesign.
I cut the loops off yesterday with my new angle grinder...
I will post the next change adding scrolls balls and a front entrance gate..
I'm loving the decision to remove the loops @jkhandywoman. What any instant transformation to something that appears more period correct for your home.
I very much look forward to following along with this project and seeing your results.
Keep up the skilled work as it's inspirational.
