This might be kind of long... but here goes. I stopped by my mudpit-to-be-house today to find they've laid out the forms for the foundation, YAY. Now I'm pondering my fencing options. I want to erect (heh heh, he said erect /butthead) a typical 8 foot cedar privacy fence to keep my puppies in and the neighbors from see what a shitty gardener and lazy slob I am. so, the pink box is the property line, the black box the house outline. Now, the builder seems to be putting up a short little privacy fence connecting the houses to each other, probably to hide the fact that it's not landscaped beyond that line, but this "fence" is noted by the blue line from the house to the property line. so I'm trying to decide if I should connect that fence, and run all the way back and across, connecting to the other side (red line) or if I should come out off the corner of the house, over to the property line and around to the other corner (blue-boxish thing) the houses are so close together that fencing the area between the houses is useless, and fencing is expensive. But if I don't connect up there I'll just have to install my own gate somewhere, maybe two. not that it's a huge deal. I dunno... For reference the back of the house to the property line is only about 20 feet, perhaps a bit less, I don't know the width, it was too muddy to pace.
