Building A Fence

FenceBlogA couple of weeks ago, our family decided to plant a garden  using  raised garden beds. We had a blast building the  boxes  and planting a  few seeds. We  are  excited to grow our own  food and see how far  we  can get with our  vegetables.

To accompany our raised garden beds we decided to build a  small 3’ tall  fence. Our adorable little puppies continually get  in the dirt and we  honestly did not want them to start eating  the plants once they began to  sprout.

Building a fence is surprisingly easy. It requires a few supplies and a few hours of dedicated work. We were able to build our fence in two nights. The first night we dug our postholes and used 4’ pressure treated 4×4 as our posts. We dug our holes 12” deep to ensure that our fence would be 3’ tall. Once our holes were dug we put the posts in and poured in the concrete to secure them.

We used 6’ cedar planks and cut them in half to fit our fencing structure. We secured each plank with four fencing screws and used a level to make sure everything was straight.

It was a fun learning  experience for the whole  family and was  one  of our  spring projects. Our spring list  is getting shorter and  we are  almost ready for this summer  season. I think the next  project  we  would like to tackle is  adding a closet in our guest  room to provide  more storage!
