In this video we look at how to build a wooden privacy fence that my wife and I built for our new investment property. house walk through: https://youtu.be/g-Dgrkn2jqE Nikki's instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nikki_ingram75/ My instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ianmingram/?hl=en Our business http://yourhomesold2day.com/
I'm using the cool South Carolina "winter" to finish the wooden fence around my backyard. In this edition I install about 70 feet of fence line, sans the gate. I will probably dedicate a whole future Memphis Monday video to installing at least one of the gates. The fence we build today is scratch built using deck 4x4's, two 6x6's, 180 5/8x5 1/2x6' fence pickets, 24 2x4's, and finally well over 2000 hot dipped ring shank nails. Previously I had used pre-assembled fence panels, but I wasn't totally satisfied. Here's why: 1. The pre-assembled fence panels are bulky, heavy, and nearly impossible to move into place alone. I've done it many times, but it requires jigs and rigging invested for no real advantage. In short, you can nail the pickets into place about as fast, with much less effort. 2. The stringers in the prefab panels is only 2 inches wide, which results in sagging of those horizontal parts. I upgraded to select 2x4's. 3. The pickets on the prefab panels are spaced at 4 1/4 inches, which puts the panel count at 20, and leaves only about 1/2 inch nailing room on each side of the top boards. I reduced the spacing to between 2 and 3 inches, which both increased the board count per panel, and provided a stronger nailing edge on the top boards.

(Wooden Fence With Metal Posts) 0:00 / 6:51 How to make a Sturdy Fence. Ok so today we are going to show you how to build a nice fence. So we already have the first step done. We came out here a week ago and we dug the How to make a Sturdy Fence. Ok so today we are going to show you how to build a nice fence. So we already have the first step done. We came out here a week ago and we dug the holes and cemented them in. So we used a post hole digger and we dug the holes two feet deep. And then we filled them with cement. And we did that all down the line. Also I want to mention that we used a string and the string goes all down the line. And that makes sure that your posts are all in a straight line. And you want to move the string a few inches back so that you don't break it when you dig it. Also you want to place a level on two sides of the pole to make sure it is straight. Ok so the next step we are going to do is put on some brackets. The neighbor was nice and let us use his fence post to be the corner of our fence post. What we are to do is put on these brackets so that we have two at the bottom. These are to hold what is called the kicker board. This is going to be the bottom which gives the fence a pretty look and makes it tough at the bottom. So we have two brackets for that and as we move up. We have one, two, and three. So three brackets. You see the neighbors have two brackets there. But what happens is over time the boards warp if you don't have a cross beam in the middle. So we are going to use that middle bracket to keep that from warping. You are going to go and measure out all the brackets. And put those brackets on each fence post. We are going to have the inside of the brackets inside our yard. If you want the cross beams to be outside of your yard, you would flip this around so that the flat part here would be on this side. So it just depends on how you want the fence. I like the beams on the inside to discourage neighbor kids from climbing the fence as it will just be a flat board on the outside so nothing to really climb on. Some people like the pretty side to be on the inside. So now you can see what it looks like with the kicker board in place. You end up with four bolts. So you see what it looks like on the inside. And if you plan it right then the kicker boards will meet there. And this is what it looks like on the inside. Now we have a panel completed. So what we will do is take these boards and place them level and then screw them in.We put in two screws for each panel, two screws each time it meets the brace. Ok so we are at the last board. It wouldn't quite fit so we had to cut about an inch off. And then I cut another angle otherwise it would have been square and I cut a little too much so be careful that you try to match it. Anyways it is he last one so nobody will really see it. Then I am going to squeeze that in there. And put the last few screws in. And the last screw, here goes! Wooh! Now look at the fence we made.

Use an electric jackhammer to cut away part of the asphalt driveway at the first gatepost location. 2. Stretch a taut mason line from the first post location to establish the position of the second post. 3. Use a posthole digger to excavate a 30-inch-deep posthole for each gatepost. 4. Slide an aluminum I-beam into each vinyl post and secure them with 3/4-inch self-tapping screws. 5. Pour one 80-pound bag of concrete into a wheelbarrow, add six pints of water, and mix well with a shovel. 6. Dump two full shovels of concrete into the first hole. 7. Set an aluminum-fortified vinyl gatepost in the hole and plumb it with a level. 8. Shovel more concrete around the post, filling the hole to within 3 inches of grade. 9. Tamp down the concrete with a steel bar, then smooth the concrete with a trowel. 10. Repeat Steps 6 through 9 to install the second gatepost 11. Set a vinyl post cap on top of each post, then allow the concrete to cure for 24 hours. 12. Use a reciprocating saw to cut away the old wooden fence. 13. Pull up and discard the old fence posts. 14. Starting at the high end of the property, use the posthole digger to excavate the first 30-inch-deep fence-post hole. 15. Cut a pressure-treated 6x6 to span from the bottom end of a fence post up to the lowest mortise. 16. Slip the 6x6 into the bottom end of the fence post, then stand the post in the hole. 17. Check the post for plumb, then fill around it with 12 inches of concrete. 18. Compact the concrete with a steel bar. 19. Stretch a mason line from the first fence post to the far end of the fence line. Tie off the string to a wooden or metal stake. 20. Dig the intermediate postholes along the fence line, as indicated by the mason line. 21. If your yard slopes down, stretch a grade string across the fence line, positioning it 6 inches above the ground. 22. Install a vinyl fence panel against the first fence post. Secure the panel by driving 2 1/2-inch deck screws through the post and into the horizontal rails. 23. Conceal each screwhead with a snap-closure plastic cap. 24. Install the next post to support the opposite end of the fence panel. Check to confirm that the lowest mortise is even with the grade string. 25. Secure the panel by screwing through the second post and into the rails. 26. Pour 12 inches of concrete around the post, then backfill with soil. 27. Repeat to install the remaining panels and posts. 28. Install a vinyl cap to the top of each fence post, then remove all the grade stakes and strings. 29. Fortify the vertical frame of the gate with pressure-treated 4x4s. 30. Screw the gate hinges through the vinyl posts and into the aluminum I-beam. 31. Then install the gate handle, latch, and cane bolt.

Last video I extended each steel post by welding on an extension, then demoing the old fence, and installing the stringers. This week I start by adding a cedar top cap then install board on board pickets on all three sides. I end the video by adding trim to the outside of the fence to give it a clean finished look. Stay tuned for part three where I build cedar boxes to hide the steel posts, add trim to pretty the boxes up, as well as build a gate for the fence.
The basis for a good fence or structure is a solid fence post. we show you how to set one to last and what to do to prevent rot.
