The fencing at Wisteria Farm and Vineyard is made from the 'scraps' of a lumberyard. Large trees are planked, that is the rounded portions sawed of to make the tree a long square block.
These planks were familiar to us.
When my children were young we heated our home with a wood stove, Every fall, we would travel to a lumberyard and load up as many bundles of planks as the flatbed could carry.
Super cheap wood.
Super low energy bills.
Very warm house.
It was a lot of work to cut all those boards down to size to fit in the big black stove. The boys (mostly the oldest) then had to take all that wood down the hill to the edge of the yard and stack it. Every evening and morning a load of planks would have to be wheel barrowed back up the hill and into the house to load up the stove nice and tight.
I believe my children have horrid flashback memories of the task.
It comes up now and then.
I rather like the look of this rustic fence.
I am thinking we might need to revisit a lumberyard.
I just know my adult children will love to help build a fence.
