Gate Fence for my Jack Russells
Recently we moved to a new house with a nice back yard, but with easy access for my two dogs to run out into the street. So the first project was to build a gate fence in front of the drive way to prevent them from running away.
Jack Russells are not tall dogs so the high of the fence is about 90cm (3 feet) from the ground. The fence is split in two parts 2m (79”) long each and one part opens as a gate.
Made out of pine wood and coated with a undercoat all weather sealer and two coats of brown tinted varnish.
The vertical pieces are 10cm (4”) apart so my dogs have a nice view outside when the cars are not parked in front of it.
Two long gate hinges and a 3” caster allows the gate to open smoothly pivoting on two 2×4 lumber stock, and a sliding lock keeps it safe from opening.
Both parts of the fence are elevated to prevent the wood from soaking in water.
Jennifer & Esther are two happy dogs now :)
