THIS FENCE WILL MAKE YOU STALL!December 10th, 2012 in member junk
I have two vicious Yorkies. They love to get away and hide in the woods that surround my house. To solve that problem we needed a fence, but the size fence we needed was way out of our price range.
Fortunately, we learned of some horse stalls being torn down, and if we would cart off the lumber we could have the wood from those stalls for free. We loaded and carried wood for months. The wood was all different lengths and had the numbers of the stalls burned into it. We decided not to even up the wood but to create an up and down pattern in the fence. Some people don't understand that and we are asked all the time when are we going to even up the top? We are not going to even it up, we like the feel of the fence. Haven't added up our complete total for the fence, but for gate parts, post and other wood pieces we are thinking somewhere around $350, maybe a little less. We found a nail gun with to full boxes of nails at a yard sale for $ 60, that made the work go faster. My husband built the fence, working off and on for three months or so. Our yard is an acre and the fence does not go the whole acre, but it covers a good deal of our yard. We are happy with our different fence, and the Yorkies are learning to love being contained. There are some places where the pattern is off, and maybe the fence is not as level as it should be, but it all seems to work.
