Many Eastside home owners – or flippers – have opted to replace rusty chain link or picket fences with horizontal slats of wood. But when Elvira Rodriguez decided she needed to replace the fence in front of two Echo Park bungalow she owns on Bellevue Avenue, she decided she wanted horizontal fencing with a bit of flair. Working with her fence builder, Marceleno Lopez, she designed a fence with a gentle wave cut into the top piece of wood. It is a small detail but “I wanted to give it a different shape” from all the other fences, said Rodriguez, who also opted for a light-stain finish.
After starting in November, Lopez recently finished the 100-foot long fence in between other jobs and under Rodriguez’ watchful eye. “Poor fellow,” said Rodriguez. “I think I tired him out.”
