Re: Blocking a house from our view


Heck with the view, I want the snowmobile. Wait ...I live in KY, cannot ride it on one inch deep snowfalls I bet.

Thanks! This has me thinking (and I should have thought of this before!), we could probably build multiple, unconnected, angled fence panels - so that the wind could pass between the fence panels and not rip the whole thing down.

Or we could build multiple V-shaped panels...

Hmmm - I'll have to think on this one.

When working in blizzards I've built temporary wind breaks using a pallet with 2 4x8 sheets of plywood with the V positioned to the wind of course. It is so calm inside the V a kitchen match can be lit. It seemed as if there was a negative pressure in the V.

Oh, and the property line is right where the ground drops off out of view. The slope on the other side is pretty steep.

Thanks again!

I've seen panel fences with vertical 2x4s at 45 degree angles between the top and bottom rails and every other panel had the 2x4's angled opposite. Looked kind of neat I thought and would sure allow the wind to filter through.

Re: Blocking a house from our view


apology for not keeping up with the reading so this may have already been considered.

I searched for some grape arbor or pergola type structures and thought some might disguise that view enough while still looking like an natural addition to your yard. Basically they are an open grid structure that during growing season could be used for whatever vine might grow and during off season still break up the lower portion of that view.

Just a thought
