Old cedar fencing

My neighbor in my backyard has a cedar fence that is beyond repair and was probably put up shortly after the house was built is the late 80's. She wants to tear it down and not replace it but that means my back yard will be wide open. I pulled a piece off that was hanging on by a nail. I ran it through my planner and was left with a 1/2" piece of nice looking board. My thought is that I work out a deal with her to take all the fencing plane it down and use what I can to construct a new fence. I would end up with a stack of lumber even after the fence goes up. The 4x4 post and all the rails would need to be replaced as they are the weak link in the fence. It would certainly be a project but would save some money and keep my back yard fenced in along with giving me a nice supply of cedar to use on other projects.

Before you start that project, consider checking with your city's zoning department as for permits of constructing lot line fences. In almost 40 years, some city zoning laws may have changed. If that is a "go", be certain to have the property line surveyed, and stay inside that line. Be safe.

Those are the first things on my list to check with the city before moving forward with the project.
