Courtyard Fence Sneak Peek


I've been MIA, but for good reason. We have been building a fence to make a courtyard out of a recessed patio. We still have to add the beams that attach to the house, and then stain, but the hard part it done. Hubby set the posts and I built the panels.

I did the top part of the gate with my scroll saw - finished it yesterday.



I wanted to be able to see out the gate but I didn't want it so open that anyone driving down the street could see in, so I made a small design in each slat on the top.



We attached one panel with bolt latches so we can take it out to move large things in and out.

    1. Thank you. I'm anxious to start on the courtyard too. It's a pretty barren view out my window right now. But that will have to wait until the next warm spell.

    1. Thank you! I hope the panel with the bolt latches works the way we want. We did put feet on it so it doesn't put any strain on the latches, but it still has to be lifted or pulled to move it.
