I have a thing for unique fences that seem plausibly DIY-able. Fences are such pricey investments, but for many with pets or those looking to section off their space, they're often imperative. I've long since been in love with farm fencing materials, but at the end of the day, they look like just that: a farm fence. This simple twist kicks the idea up a notch and is a great way to bring a little extra design to tie things together for a modern look.
Arch Daily recently featured this lovely modern home in Austin, Texas designed by LZT Architects. The home itself is beautiful in its own right, but what first caught my attention was the fence. It's nice to have a little privacy without feeling like you've isolated yourself from the neighbors and surrounding areas. This combination of wood and metal fencing is a good compromise. It gives you just enough protection from peeping eyes to not feel like you're on display, while still being able to have a conversation with your neighbor like Wilson and Tim Taylor on TV's Home Improvement.
