Custom Fence

Custom built fence, built from scratch picket by picket for my backyard. All I have left to do is fabricate some gates. The fence in the very background will be removed from by my neighbor and we will be constructing my fence in its place.

This is my first fence job and I am thrilled with the outcome. Especially since it is MY fence :) I think I may have set a new standard for the neighborhood.

Second picture shows before, third picture shows the posts set in concrete, and the last picture shows the construction of the arbor.

I will let it dry for about a month before I stain and seal it.

I will update when I have built the gates to go with it.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks! Yes they are pressure treated. I want them to last! The whole assembly was screwed together with deck screws so hopefully it will stand for many years to come.

Looks very nice, if the posts and beams are pressure treated, what are the rest of the boards?

Versa, the panels are pressure treated pine also. For some reason the panels come in a different shade of color, don’t know the reason for that, perhaps a different type of treatment.
