no previous part Part 1 of BUILDING BRICK FENCE POSTS FOR FENCE series no next part

Hi Folks, I’ve been off the blog for the past few very busy days, something about an infestation of mice in our RV. Problem now solved so I can get back to more pressing things. I am having a new fence put in around our place with a double 10 ft. gate for the RV. I would like to put a Brick Post with an appropriate cap on each side of this entry. I’ve never done very much of this sort of work and I like the idea of a challenge. Would anyone be able to tell me where I might find some plans or directions for such a project. I am more concerned about the foundation and what that should be. I’ve included a link to the gallery of the company that produces the fence we’re installing it includes a pic of the type of posts I would like to install. Not necessarily the same dimensions. Thanks in advance, Johnt

John,
If it were me I would start with a small pad(footer) of concrete as a base. (3”-4”) Then lay the center with cinderblock. After dry Lay brick around cinderblock and cap with a nice stone. You can even run electirc up to the top if you desire a light. I would search Fine Homebuilding’s websight or diy for more specific directions. Hope this helps.
