Re: Party Fence Wall - Trellis

Wow Spanish too Mac - impressed. But I too don't really 'get' the OP's comment.

Re: Party Fence Wall - Trellis

To answer the OP's question, 2m is from original ground level. So, that would be from 'your' side.

The costs were shared between the previous owners and our neighbours and the wall is quite clearly a party fence wall. However, as...
