Thinking about building your own fence and saving as much as you possibly can?

I think every home owner has thought about it in some instances, but the thought of it quickly fades away when you start thinking on how much time it will actually take. But if you are a DIY type of person, a fence is not a huge project as a pool or roof or you get what I'm saying! Beware if you are short on time then I suggest you leave it to the professionals! But if you have one of the most precious thing in the world that is time then let me give you an idea. First you have to be sure what kind of material you want and how much you will need. Material is very expensive depending on the quality. Let say you want to do 100 linear feet of wood fence. I highly recommend cedar pickets. Can't tell you how many times we had to go replace pine pickets. Yeah you'll save about a buck on each but in the long run is not as durable. Pine pickets crack and bend easily after a while. So you will want to set each section about 7 feet apart no more than that. Your post should go underground about 2-2.5 feet deep and the concrete should be mixed before pouring in the holes. Oh and this is for a 6 foot tall fence! Yeah just thinking about the holes you'll have to dig gives you a headache but don't give up!

Make sure you have a string line on each end and a leveler so your posts wont look crooked. Then is pretty much a go putting the 2x4 in between the sections and you can do 2 or 3 depending on how many rails you want. I suggest you get a nail gun cause is alot of nails. See if your neighbor has one you can borrow. We always use stainless steel nails but if you don't want to spend much try using galvanized nails. You don't want your wood to rust and bleed because of bad nails! If you have any questions or comments email us at we will post answers here on our blog. Until next time, God bless everyone!
