Q: I know I'm not alone in the loathing of chain-link fences. We inherited one in our front yard and have resolved that it has to go but have no idea what to do to replace it (and we need to have a fence for our dogs). Would it be possible to take out the chain-link, leave the skeleton, and install some sort of better looking metal or wood grid? The house is old (built in 1910) with a bright red brick exterior but not overly ornate. We are adding a lot of modern details but leaving the early 20th century feel. The porch has some wrought-iron details that I would like to match, if possible. We're pretty handy but have almost no money in the budget for this project.
