    HOW DO I STOP PEOPLE/THEIVES ACCESSING MY PROPERTY WHEN MY NEIGHBOUR TAKES DOWN FENCE TO BUILD A GARAGE ON OUR FENCELINE. HIS SITE IS OPEN TO BOTH THE BACK LANE AND THE SIDE STREET AS HE IS ON A CORNER AND IF HE TAKES DOWN PART OF MY FENCE ASWELL THEN ANYONE CAN ACCESS IT. HOW CAN WE HAVE MORE SECURITY DURING BUILDING TIME? CAMERAS?

    . i DONT KNOW HOW SHORT THE TIME COULD BE FROM WHEN THEY REMOVE THE FENCE TO WHEN THEY HAVE REPLACED IT WITH THE BIG BRICK WALL SOME 3.2 METRES BY SOME 7 METRES, THAT WILL BE ON MY FENCELINE. hOW LONG WOULD IT NORMALLY TAKE. TO BUILD SUCH A BRICK WALL AND SECURE MY PROPERTY AGAIN AND WHAT CAN BE DONE MEANWHILE FOR MORE SECURITY ALL DAY.

    I don't know the answer to your question, but if I felt that scared by the temporary lack of a fence I'd be looking to move to a different area. Not meaning to be flippant but the fence isn't really the problem.

    Hi @justine77

    If you are concerned about your personal safety... one option is to take a holiday while the fence is being constructed (or stay elsewhere with friends/family). If however you are concerned about protecting your turf, you can never entirely do so, and you'll just upset yourself trying. Fencing or no fencing, you won't be Fort Knox. Just let it be. Let time pass and the new fence will appear. :)

    In my street, the neighbourhood children deem everyone's front yard to be fair game for their kick of the footy on their way to school. That's the way it is. There are two choices - be briefly irritated and then accept it as part of living in the free world, or be eternally furious and die of a heart attack.

    GET A GUARD EAGLE. TRAIN THE EAGLE TO SWOOP AT ANY INTRUDER. IM PRETTY SURE COUNCIL REGULATIONS STIPULATE THAT THE NEIGHBOUR TAKING DOWN THE FENCE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL ASSOCIATED COSTS WITH TRAINING THE GUARD EAGLE.

    Yep, temporary fencing. It is easy to remove for each day's work, and replace at the end of the day. Of course, any fence will only keep out honest people.

    I'd guess a state of panic.

    Thanks for temporary fencing suggestion . I spoke to their builder to assure that would happen because last time the fence was open I did have items disappear from my property so security is a concern when they remove the fence till the brick wall is up

    How long should that take to put up a 7x3 metre brick wall .pls

    1 day to lay the bricks.
    7m x 3m wall = roughly 1029 standard bricks.
    2 brickies and a labourer can do this in a day.

    But that is just for that portion of the wall.
    There is also the foundation, other walls that tie into this wall, etc.

    Do you have pets or young children? Did you tell them that you have property stolen? If you want the builder put up temporary fencing you can only hope they do it quickly. Otherwise you get someone to put in for you quickly but get the builder to agree to pay you in wr once he's happy with the quote.

    If you are really cannot sleep in peace stay all night to guard your house. But as someone has said, people can still jump fence if they want to rob you they will rob you.
