The first thing we needed to do before we could officially move in to our new house, was to fully enclose the back yard by building a fence. luckily the other 3 sides of the yard were already fenced by the neighbors. we decided to build a wood fence with horizontal planks, going with a bit more modern feel because we plan on having our house appear much more mid-century modern once we finish with the remodels. Wooden elements will continue to appear as we update the curb appeal of the house. this is just the first step.
