  • let the guy keep his damn fence!

    Ok I've been searching for a bunch of info on fences and I had found this story. Ridiculous! So this guys dogs ran around the neighborhood, people complained so he decides to build a fence, he has no money (the house he has was run down when he bought it so looking at the pic I can only assume any money he had went into it), so he finds a cheap source of pine and starts building a fence....looks like a short privacy fence if you look at the pic... His LAWYER neighbor complains that he is making a fence out of wood pallets! Lady its pine! It's the same pine that any pine fence is made out of...well its probably a better grade then the crap sold at the chain stores.

    That's this story...

    Update is they recently changed the zoning. A fence now must be made out of I think the term used was "regionally specific" (again, this is just pine, same as 90% of the non plastic fences bought or made) and here is the best part.... It must be made of materials intended for use in fences. What? So wait.... You can't use a treated 4x4, you have to use a treated 4x4 FENCE post if you put in fence posts?

    The guy WAS keeping the pallets in his use as he was taking them apart to build the fence....I can understand saying that is an eyesore but he only started doing it outside cause the city told him it was against code to dissassemble them IN HIS GARAGE.

    Look at his fence and tell me if there is anything wrong with it.

    Peace

      It looks awful, no amount of stain or paint is going to fix that.

        It does look shitty, but let the guy clean it up a bit and atleast finish the job before you judge it surely?

          I'm no carpenter but honestly that does look pretty bad.

          The neighbor(s) have a point. Something that devalues the neighborhood, well, devalues the neighborhood. Kinda like a broken down, POS car in a driveway, just collecting dirt and cobwebs.

          Kudos for frugal ingenuity, though. Really MacGyver'd it.

            He said he planned to paint it when done. The part that is filled in looks like any other wood privacy fence to me.

              He stopped as soon as they told him a neighbor complained so that's not what it was gonna look like. The begining where its solid is what it is supposed to look like when its done...but treated and painted. If you look at that part and picture it painted, looks like a short privacy fence to me.

                    Bingo on it devaluing the neighborhood.....and truth be told, most pallets are returnable, so he might have been able to return them to a pallet company and get money for them, and could have invested that money in a cheap 3' privacy fence.....lol

                        That 3' fence serves no purpose other than to keep me and Mentalflex out of his yard.
