What and how to build a "correct fence"? Choosing a design and designing. Brutal and horizontal

I often hear the opinion that we live in a wrong way in Russia. Say, "Correct Europe" does not enclose sites. In theirs Holland, even curtains on the windows are not customary to hang. Well, let them not hang, what is it to us? Who said that it is correct "like in Europe"? Why should we look up to her? They have their own concepts of correct, we have ours.

After all, they themselves say that we have bears roaming the streets? You must understand. What if he wanders into the site? And there is a cow, a farm... My home is my castle. And what is a fortress without a fence?

We welcome you to the channel, where we, an ordinary city family, tell you how #do it yourself build #Vacation home. We do everything ourselves. From foundation to ridge. Interesting? subscribe to the channel and watch.

Summer has come and we decided to suspend the construction of the house. Throw strength on the site. In the end, the house is already heated and you can do it even in winter.. We decided to start with the fence.

Rather, continue. On the back side, we fenced off the plot immediately after the acquisition, but from the front side, from the street, you will not yet look at the fence without tears.

Detailed people live in Russia. Especially away from the capital. Where the forests are dense, and the people are harsh. We absolutely need to build something fundamental. So that a height of two meters and no one could even stick their nose in. And I really want it to look human. Harmonizing with home.

This is what the neighboring fences look like. To the left and right of us. Concrete and massive. Soundly and solid.

The Chief Architect is not ready for that. Says too concrete. I want a little more lightness. But without losing "solidity". The other day she made me happy with sketches of the future design. Stone posts and wood filling. The boards are arranged in a "herringbone" manner in the manner of blinds.

For some reason, more often than not, fences are sewn up with vertical boards. It is so accepted. Anyone who has at least heard something about designs knows that vertical lines visually pull the structure up, and horizontal lines "press" to the ground, spreading them over the surface. And since our house is "wider than higher" and is smeared over the surface, we decided to make the fence appropriate.

If everything is clear with the boards, then the question of columns remains open. What to build them from? Fortunately, a couple of plots on the next street decided this issue for us. By constructing almost the same. True with a different fill pattern.

Pretty cute in my opinion. On the one hand, there are massive and solid posts, on the other, a frivolous wicker in the manner of willow wattle.

But this neighbor has almost the same, but looks more brutal. The stones are more massive, and the boards are wider.

I don’t know how in your opinion, but it will look good to us. So we decided to do something similar. We have stones everywhere in the Urals. This is probably why we love him so much. Literally a few kilometers from us - a quarry where limestone is mined. Yesterday we drove to see what was there and to choose 5 cubic meters. I think 9 columns should be enough.

It's funny, but it turns out that the thinner the flagstone, the more expensive. It's good that we just need a fat one. At least somewhat lucky.

We decided on the design, decided on the materials - you can start. The first step is to build the foundation. We mark, we dig a trench, put the formwork and fill in the tape. In places where there will be posts, we drill holes to the depth of freezing. Everything is "grown-up".You don't think that the fence is not a capital structure, do you?

Well, how do you like our plans? Like? Don't you think that we are too bothering and it was easier to put metal posts and sew them up with a corrugated sheet? Cheap and cheerful. But with us it is always like this, we are not looking for easy ways. ツ

What kind of fence do you have? Or are you, as Europeans, not afraid of anyone and not blocking your way?
