Would you take it personal if your neighbor built an 8 foot fence 4 weeks after you moved in?

We haven't been here very long. We keep to ourselves. And we have no issues with our neighbors. They are quiet too. My husband grew up in this town. It's really small, and never has he seen someone build a fence! Let alone that huge of a fence. These are four acre lots! Maybe I'm reading to much into it, but it seems weird. They didn't even check the property lines. Am I reading too much into this?

  • Just be happy they did, and you won't have to,lol.... They are expensive, so I'm sure it wasn't a something they did on a whim.

  • I think you are. They could have been planning it for a while, plus it's their business. I'm a fence person myself, and an 8 foot one sounds great to me.

  • Maybe they are nudists. I would check the property lines, just for your own peace of mind, and then not worry about it anymore.

  • No,I would not take it PERSONALLY. People like fences --for dogs,for example,and privacy. In our area dogs cannot be running free--they have to be on a leash or in a fenced yard so I always prefer a fenced yard. And if I was in my yard in my swimsuit trying to get a tan----I would REALLY want a fence! LOL.

  • I wouldn't worry about it you never know they may have been planning the fence for some time... who knows it could be for personal reasons that they built it so let this one roll off your back....

  • The people who moved in three years ago next door built a fence that was huge they do not speak to any of us I thought at first it was personal but after a while I realized they do not like anyone.

  • LOL.. I would probably feel the same way you do. However, are you sure they didn't have it planned out a long time ago? Sometimes it takes a while to get all the materials ordered and in.

  • I wouldn't even think about it. Who knows? They could've been planning on building it months ago, way before you moved in.
