Although I like to have a house without fence, the house where I live now have fence. We live in an environment where fence for a house is a must. My educational background is architecture so I like designing houses, and every time I have house design project I also make a custom design for its fence.
There are some materials that I usually use to build fences for houses like wood, iron, steel, stainless steel, bamboo, concrete an even aluminum. I was just found out that there are fences made of pvc too, and actually the pvc fence installation is much more simple and the result is incredible.
