I’ve been working hard for the last couple of weeks on a new fence. I used pressure treated posts and rails. The pickets are cedar. The series of articles on my blog…

I know not many people will comment on your fence. Great job. I have done some fence work around my house and it is not as easy as it seems. Thanks for posting, you are a inspiration!!

We replaced the unshared portion of our fence about three years ago, I’d never put up a fence before. As we needed it to coral children and a dog I remember it as a bit of a marathon to get the old one down and the new one up in two days. I can appreciate how much work you’ve done there, its a good looking fence. I like the view you’ve got there also.

I built fences with a friend for two years, in Texas. Hard work doesn’t begin to describe it.
Couple of misc ramblings: Glad you used three cross boards, so many folks cheap out and complain later when the pickets warp. Also glad to see the ground under the pickets, keep the boards up to keep the rot away. The adjust-a-gate makes for an awesome, strong, gate. Well worth the money. Plan to seal the pickets in a year or so (Thompsons, etc), depending on where you live. Once the cedar dries out it turns grey fast and I prefer to keep it looking pretty.

I know how much work a fence is, and this looks great, very nicely done.
