Fences & Gates
Plan, Design, BuildBook - 2002
Fences & Gates: Plan, Design, Build is aimed at homeowners who would like to install a fence on their property to provide privacy, security, and beauty, or to contain domesticated animals. Anyone who has considered installing a fence can use this book to determine what kind of fence to choose and how to erect it. The book offers a practical combination of design, planning, and construction information. All types of fences are covered, including traditional picket styles and more modern board fences. Wood fences and gates are featured, but there are also chapters on vinyl, chain-link, and other utilitarian systems, such as underground electric pet fences. Individual chapters explain material options and show with step-by-step photo sequences how to install, finish, and repair many types of posts, rails, and gates.
