Today we are sharing a DIY PVC Fence Enclosure to Hide a Dumpster. Our post and beam barn has had some minor cosmetic work since my parents and I bought the house a couple years ago but nothing too major. Stay tuned, because Jim is about to makeover this barn to create a ton of storage and I am hoping to give the outside a complete makeover as well.

Stay tuned, Jim is adding a second floor half loft inside for storage along with shelving. I am also hoping to get the outside painted or stained this Fall. You can see a bunch of short video clips (hurry before they expire) and fun pictures of this fence going up on our Instagram account Stories. I personally love the music on the videos. -ha.  PS. if you missed our basement makeover shared a couple weeks ago, check it out here.
