Taking inspiration from chevron patterns and the axiom, "good fences make good neighbors", Makoto and Benjamin of Los Angeles design partnership Scout Regalia decided to bookend their home with a pair of curb-appeal boosting wooden fences, then share their project with everyone as a downloadable PDF plan...

The second of Scout Regalia's ongoing Cutsheet Project series (the first was this rustic planting table), the DIY Fence Project is also available as a downloadable PDF plan for anyone to build and customize specific to their needs.
