You should be sure to check with the building/permit department within your town. I put a wooden fence up last year and the "nice side" had to face the neighbors. Good Luck!

As far as re-sale value, it would obviously be better if you put the nice side in. I always suggest getting a survey first, then staying at east an inch or two inside of the property line with the fence.

Good Luck!

I was going to say the same thing. It just seems logical to face the "nice side" outward. Your curb appeal will improve with the wood fence either way, but the type of wood fence can make a big difference. Make sure that your changes now keep resale value in mind. |

Normally, a fence is built with both neighbors involved (not only in choosing the material, but also in the cost of the construction. If your neighbor refuses to work with you make sure the fence is on your property, and build it according to your tastes.
