I need to rebuild the gate on the side of our house. Does anyone have a resource and / or know of any plans for outdoor gates?

Thanks!

We usually build the frame out of steel tubing to prevent sag and flex and then screw the fence boards on to the frame with coated screws.

Hi Stan,

You didn’t say what kind of gate you are looking to build. How tall does it need to be? Do you intend to make it entirely of wood. I built a side gate for my house last year which you can see in my projects. It might give you some ideas.

Handy,

New Yankee Workshop offers plans for an English Garden gate, Very Nice.
I built one after watching the episode but I didn’t use NYW plans.
In my projects.

My two gates have held up just fine.

Lee Valley and a few other places have Metal Gate Reinforcemant Kits if your going to “ReBuild” it as you’ve said.

UNLESS you’re NOT Re-Building it which might be the reason you’re looking for Plans to build a new one.

Yes? No?

This is TYPICAL!! Somebody puts up a Post asking for Help and they don’t comment on any of the Comments and He’s probabl not even watching his own Post.

WHY BOTHER?????

@Rick: I have been watching. I apologize for not responding. Between the busyness of life, the flu hitting two members of my family and work I have not taken the time respond. Please forgive me.

I will be building a replacement gate sometime this year.

Thank you all for all who have contributed ideas.

That’s okay Stan! My error actually.

I’ve been Posting a LOT of helpful stuff over the last few Months/Weeks and the Poster never shows up again.

I might even Post a Topic of it in “Site Feedback”. All it does is discourage people from Posting when someone REALLY is asking for some help and that’s what this Site is suppose to be all about.

Do you have a picture of your current fence, or any ideas of what you want this new gate to look like? By that, I mean, do you just want a basic 6’ picket fence gate without any decorative touches? Does it need to be a double gate, or a single gate? Any pictures of gates you’ve seen that you might want to mimic?
