Topic tags/keywords: fence

I was at a wedding this weekend at a park pavilion. The west wall was quite intriguing.
Perhaps you have seen this before…

As shown in the picture, the wood is all on angles allowing air to move through the pavilion.
If I were to build a privacy fence I might consider this option.

Nice idea (and a lot of work if it covers a large area) but I like it anyway.

I like it too. Even though my yard will get attention after the interior is complete, I have been thinking about a privacy screen to disguise a composting pit. I could use a screen like that to top off a stone base. That would be a nice effect. It’s beefier looking than plain old vertical slats. It will also allow for good air circulation.

Thanks Debbie! Keep those ideas coming!

I like the design too which is more attractive than the panels that are not fixed at an angle. This is also a clever design to maintain privacy without totally blocking out ventilation. Thanks for sharing and we are considering it for our front entrance gate.

Go for it Debbie,
I’m making some louvered doors for a vanity as we speak. Same concept as your pic. (except smaller)


Pretty easy cutting all the dado’s with a descent jig.
I have 4 doors and it didn’t take all that long cutting all the dado’s.
I thought it was going to be a headache, but not so much.

Debbie – I have seen this in the South (East Coast) and the Caribbean in houses that dated before A/C. It works well.

And very practical – allows a nice breeze and shades the sun. Many of them are hinged at the top and open outward to give you the views. There is a multi-notched stick so you can raise it to different levels. There is also the ability to lock them in the down position to be used as a hurricane shutter. Although not approved in current standards, these were the norm for many years.
