Update 3/22/2012: I am not sure how I managed to post this without updating the photo to show the fence that we built alongside my back yard patio.
A must read if you are building or installing your own fence.
I am happy that I came across this site. If you are putting up a fence at your home or business, you are probably aware of the high cost of a relatively straightforward design. Calredwood has a number of fence plans that you can execute on your own. The designs range from basic to beautiful. If you have ever considered building your own fence, I encourage you to view the plans below (click the link or the image).
Redwood is a gorgeous material and is naturally resistant to rot and decay. If redwood is too expensive in your area, you might want to consider red cedar or white cedar.
These plans are 17 pages of terrific content. They cover topics such as the layout of your fence, installation, finishing, and even gate and hardware options.
