|This fabulous Westleigh pizza oven standing close & outside to where the pool fence line needed to be, did not deter us - I designed extra tall inconspicuous (black) alum pool fencing to meet effective height & climb zone challenges.||This Westleigh "billy goat" backyard has magnificent bush views which we complemented by custom made Spotted Gum hardwood posts supporting black aluminium pool fence panels.||This Hornsby Heights pool deck overlooks bush valley & we replaced old non-compliant horizontal wire balustrades with black alum panels fitted under Merbau rails. We also extended far end of deck where there was no decking with same design. (July 2021)||In Nov 2021, stage 2, we replaced ugly & weak metal garden fence adjacent pool deck with same design as the deck balustrades, where client painted the chunky treated pine posts black. What a magic outlook!|
Re-purposed wrought-iron fence & gates at Pymble ...
Early June 2021 we did an interesting driveway area fencing job in Pymble, re-using very heavy & beautifully made old wrought iron gates (2) & panels made from solid steel spear pickets.
|A few weeks prior we removed ~13m of this non-compliant fencing from a pool area in a heritage home in Pymble. I advertised the old fence panels, gates & posts on Gumtree & on same day was contacted by client #2 also from Pymble & also owning a heritage home who met me next morning to assess the materials. He bought all the old materials, then that arvo I spent 2 hours at site #2 doing gap analysis to conclude that 90% of what we had would fit the new driveway layout.||My steel fabricator mate Mark Philips had to make 1 new post to match the 8 others, modify 2 existing posts to adapt them to become corner posts, modify 1 stepped panel into a plain panel, plus made 9 of my custom designed post anchor inserts & base flange plates with threaded rods that the old posts sat over & fixed onto. We core-drilled through sandstone then into underlying concrete slab, & set the anchors in structural grout.||We did the steel fabrication & welding modifications, post anchors assembly, & installed it all in 1 day onsite. I hung the heavy gates next day.|
Great teamwork & a fabulous result whilst doing our bit to save the planet & re-purpose something that could have been tipped!
|This Westleigh home needed dog-proof garden fencing & a gate. So I installed Monument colour (to match existing other fences) tubular alum with big 19mm square pickets (to match existing balustrades).||Also now much less chance the basketball will roll down the steep yard & bush below.||This Turramurra pool area was entirely surrounded by climbable shrubs & non-compliant timber picket fencing & balcony railing.

|This was an interesting job to design & build a chunky picket fence as side boundary in Killara ...||The clients brief was "I want something different to the usual sawn paling fence - but want to keep the rabbits out".||The sleeper retaining wall was capped for a neat finish & to keep those rabbits out.||This Killara rental property had badly rusted steel posts & gate - so we completely replaced the pool fence with black aluminium.|
