The vinyl fence that has been up in the backyard of a Southport home for the last three years is ready to go for the first time.
Key points:The fence is a joint venture between East Coast Records and The Fence Company, a record label in SydneyThe fence will sit on a private property in South Port and has been installed by a local companyEast Coast Records is a label and distributor for Southport, and The Flavour Company is a company that owns the fence.
It was designed to be permanent and would allow people to live in the area but the owner of the property, Richard Lee, says the fence is just a temporary solution.
“We’ve been wanting to put this fence up for about three years,” he said.
“It’s a great piece of infrastructure.
It’s a barrier, and we need that barrier.”
Mr Lee says the barrier is made from concrete and will be permanent.
“They’re the cheapest concrete in the world,” he explained.
“The biggest barrier is the sand.
And they’re made from sand, which is incredibly durable.”
Mr and Mrs Lee, who are not related, have owned the property for about seven years.
Mr Lee said he was able to sell the property because of the fence, and he would be happy to let it go to someone else.
“If we get a new owner we’ll sell the fence to somebody else,” he told 7.30.
“But we’re not selling it for the money.”
The barrier was constructed in 2012 and is being installed by East Coast records.
Mr and Mr Lee, both of whom live in North Shore, have been trying to sell their property for the past three years.
“I’m happy to sell it to anybody, it’s just a matter of getting the money,” Mr Lee said.
