Refenced

Along my dog-walking route, at the edge of subdivision and country, sits a house on a multiacre lot.  This house has been for sale since we moved here almost a year and a half ago, and one of the problems was it has poor "curb appeal" as they say.  The fence was makeshift and the top edge hadn't been trimmed evenly.  It wasn't that surprising to me that no one was making an offer.  Last week the owners finally got serious about selling; they completely tore down the old fence and reassembled it with a nice clean edge, reusing the old planks.  The result is a really pretty patchwork of fresh and weather wood.

Yes it does have "appeal" now with the mismatched wood. Makes it very interesting.
