build a fence for 2300square foot house

The fence I planned was simple: cedar picket fifty feet with a swinging gate in the middle. A classic look that suits the house which was built in 1854. This is what I did. 【Get Price】

You may build a 6-ft. high privacy fence only to find that the next-door neighbors can easily see over when they’re lounging on their deck. Or you may find that your 6-ft. tall privacy fence only needed to be 4 ft. tall because surrounding areas slope away from your yard. 【Get Price】

Before you build a fence determine whether a permit is necessary and if local building codes place restrictions on height and other factors. Backyard fences can be limited to 6 to 8 feet. Fences often can have longer lives based on their building materials. 【Get Price】

Under permitted development your gate wall or fence can be up to 2 metres in height as long as: it's not facing a road; it does not come any further forward than the 'principal elevation' (the front of your house) or the side elevation (the side of your house) it's not within or on the boundary of the grounds of a listed building 【Get Price】

Attach rails for the rest of the fence. Stagger the rail joints on different posts to add stability. For example with posts spaced about 8 feet apart use 16-foot boards as the top and bottom rail to span three posts. For the middle rail use an 8-foot across two posts. Rails along a run of the fence should butt together at the middle of posts. 【Get Price】
