Making a House a Home- Fencing

Making a House a Home- Fencing

posted in: Farm and Garden | 0

Setting perimeters and boundaries is important on a farm.

 

Keeping our animals in and other animals out makes life much smoother for us and our neighbors.

No one wants a stray cow in their yard or a strange dog in the chickens’ pen.

 

On the one hand, you have practical fencing.  On the other, beauty.

The two types are separated by many, many dollars.

Many.

 

It took us a while to decide what we could afford to afford and then to save up for it.

It gave us time to vacillate between practical and pretty.

 

In the end, we found a nice compromise and put the pretty where it counted most- the entrance.

We did a combination of field fencing with metal and wood posts,

and a post & pole entrance built mostly of Lodgepole Pine.

We (by we I mean The Man of the House) pressure washed it to ready it for stain.

We used this in Timberline:

I ran the errands for supplies, then took care of our grandson while The Man of the House did the staining.  It was a team effort.

It turned out beautifully!
