Renovated Fence

Renovated Fence

Early post-WWII house/front fence - not a lotta love went into its construction. Probably too much celebration at the time.

The front fence was traditional for the era, brick columns with a 2" galvanised pipe between them. At some point there was mesh(?) connecting the pipe to the brickwork - but not there when we purchased the house.


I was given a pile of hardwood fence palings and decided to picket between the brick columns.

So many palings I decided to have no gaps between the palings - not sure if it looks right, but not gonna change it now.

I welded large pieces of angle iron onto the pipe - attached timber - and screwed the palings onto it...
