Well i ended up doing my own thing on the gates. Whats it Larry says if in doubt build it stout.
Well my side fence shared with NN is spec' d by me so i made my front fence and gate to match the side fence.
Had to put in three 6x6 posts 4ft down. Young son learnt how to dig post holes
Just a tip before i continue. I priced out at our HD (and no Dave H, i do not like them just have to use them captive). the rental of post hole digger manual (two spade type) and i would have been in for over $20 a day. So instead i bought a tai chi special or $20 at a Tai chi tool store nearby and was able to do the job over two days and have a tool at the end of it. Young son did the research i was impressed.
So here are the gory details of my construction efforts.
I hope they measure up its the first fence and gate i have made in North America. All pressure treated and used screws no nails in sight. Ask Mike Holmes.
This is the front view with gates closed. Still have to put latch in and strips in the middle between the two gates.
This is a single gate front view
Then the rear view
This is a single gate and a shot of the hinge bolts this baby aint going no where and nobody is getting through.
Then you can see area behind gate being excavated for crushed stone and concrete. Future home of trailer.
Well i really enjoyed this project. Was very worried about the holes but son made short work of them.
Still not sure about the top bit and middle but time will tell what happens there.
Comments and critique welcome because i need to learn how to do it in this part of the woods.
