Sorry for the post shortage. I've been busy cooking up some projects and attending to some DIY stuff that needs to be done at my house.
First thing was replacing my fence between my neighbor and I. The previous owners of my house installed a cheap cedar panel fence that all of the planks were held into the panel using tongue and groom joints and barely framed.
I started to dismantle the fence and the pickets all started to fall apart.. I was flustered with how flimsy the fence actually was and forgot to take a before photo. Doh!
Anyway, pulling the fence apart took less than an hour which was nice because we could get to building the fence sooner! Here are some photos of the process:
This fence was fairly straight forward.
We reused and enlarged the fence post holes for the larger 4x6 posts and installed each post using a product called fast2k foam which is equivalent to 2 bags of concrete for every one bag of the foam.
This worked out exceedingly well! Each post was leveled and installed without any real issue. The majority of the tough work was removing the old concrete and making the holes larger.
Fast2k set time is 30min with the stakes holding it plumb. Cure time is 3 hours then its good to install framing and continue building.
Next was framing and pickets. We installed each cross rail using pocket hole joinery with Kreg blue-coated screws. This was a very slick process.
Then it was time for pickets. I recently purchased a new to me framing nailer which made the installation super efficient and straight forward. The majority of the work was installing the posts and getting the spacing just right. This made the finishing process super quick. Just the way I like it!
All I have left is to chamfer the tops of each post which should be fun!
Next project is installing a gate on the other side of my house which I will write a post about after that job is done. I'm hoping tomorrow we'll be done!
Thanks for checking out my work! There's more finer woodworking projects coming down the pipes as soon as I'm done this diy work!

The guidelines underneath tell you the best way to construct a DIY protection fence. This shadowbox fence has pickets rotating on each side, offering some security however permitting you to glance through the fence at a point. A strong fence has all pickets joined firmly together outwardly just, impeding perspectives and offering total security.

This segment constructed fence, where you connect the pickets exclusively instead of in pre-collected boards, will utilize 6-foot pickets that are 5-1/2 inches wide. The space between the pickets will be 3-1/2 inches. The pickets on the contrary side will arrange over the 3-1/2-inch space, making a shadowbox impact.

In five to eight years, the fence may start to lean, but it should last 10 to 15 years overall. To keep the wood from rotting, apply a wood preservative to seal it.

Contrary to popular belief, it is easier and cheaper to have gates through which everyone can shake their jaws. Consider this one example: a row of wild trees running around your property. They add a warm green tone to your home and reduce the artist's palette when they bloom.
