Everyone tries to keep their home’s exterior looking their best, but there are a few items that aren’t designed to be attractive, such as trash cans and air conditioners. While function is definitely more important than appearance, why not have the best of both worlds? Once again, Affordable Custom Welding came up with creative ways to hide unsightly house items at a custom home in north Phoenix.

Unsightly trash cans are hidden in plain view

For this project, the homeowner wanted a way to easily access their trash cans without having them out in plain view for neighbors to see. We created this custom fabricated trash can screen that has a rustic woven look to add interest to an otherwise functional screen. Trash cans are easily accessed from the side but out of view for neighbors.

Extending the screen for air conditioners

Again, access is easy from the side while hiding the bulky units from the neighbor’s views. Having this screen also adds a layer of quiet to the units by creating a little bit of a barrier between the units and the yard. Win win!
