First Stretch of Fence

Barn Board Fence :: 2007

My first attempt at a fence.  The wood is pine barn board which has a rough-cut appearance. Here was my recipe:

  • dig hole
  • put in paper tube
  • put in pressure treated 4×4
  • fill hole with concrete, form top bit square
  • wrap post with barn board, and connect with barn board bits

The gate is built like a door, using half lap joints, which is quite sturdy.  Doesn’t seem to keep the squirrels out.
