2012-03-25. View to the bus stop from my bedroom window.
TBT (Throw Back Thursday). When I moved here 4.5 years ago, there was no fence outside my bedroom window. The bus stop is right across so you always had to be aware of how dressed (or not) you were when passing the window. I knew though that a fence against noise from the road, particularly the busses, and people passing by, was planned and was to be built. The fence at the time stopped just outside my patio. The building of the fence started in April 2012. This is a picture story about it going up.

2012-05-09. The first is up for the prolongation of the fence.

20121-05-29 From the inside. Fixing of the bottom of the fence to make it tight at the bottom.
2012-05-30 Painting and fixing the top of the fence seen from the other side of the road.
2012-05-31. The top and the painting is finished. Gravel is being put at the outside of the fence to make it tight at the bottom.
2012-05-31. Now tight at the bottom and gravel is there. All finished. My outside place is now inivisible from the outside.
2012-05-31. All finished.
Did it get any quieter? Yes, a bit. But the best with the fence is that I no longer am overlooked by people coming and going with the bus or passing by to go to or from the bus stop all the time. I now have a very quiet place on the other side of the fence.
