Cedar Gates & Fence - Photos


Just thought I'd share a couple of pictures of a couple of gates and fence I finished recently.

Very nice. It is rare that I find customers that want to fork over the cash for a top quality fence.

Considering the money that went into their entire house rebuild, the fence & gates were just a drop in the bucket but yes, it was nice to be able to build this one.

How many feet was it and how many man hours are in it?

What type of joinery did you use on the gate? You build it in the shop and then bring it to the site for installtion?

Very Nice Job - if you don't mind me asking - how did you do the top part? Is it lattice on both sides with a solid sheet between them, or? Again, awesome job

Sweet job!

I'm no fence guy, but one thing that "worries" me is that there's a lot of nooks and crannies for water to sit and collect on those panels and it looks like the fence may not get too much full sun on all parts to dry out. How do you address the rot/mold/scum issue? Stain/Sealers will only do so much. Do you insist on yearly treatments?

Re: Cedar Gates & Fence - Photos


Thanks for the compliments guys.

To answer the questions:

Gates:

- the gates have 4'x4's for the frames (except the top curve which is cut from two 2x10's)
- the joints of the frame are mortise & tenon with marine adhesive
- the gate has a cross support piece as well that you can't see because it has T&G on both sides to cover it up
- the top lattice part has T&G in the centre that extends to the top of the arch (the top was filled in and sanded to prevent water getting in)
- yes, the gates were built in my shop and just installed at the site (about 20 man hours for both)

Fencing:

- about 100 lin. ft. (there is some on the other side of the house not shown in pictures)
- not exactly sure on the number of hours as it was spread over 2 months (don't ask! suffice it to say there were a LOT of other trades in my way throughout the project) - probably about 10-12 man days - I could only get my machine in to do about 6 or 7 holes and we hand dug the rest!
- the fencing is all T&G cedar and the top matches the way I did the top of the gates
- there's drip edges on the bottoms of the horizontal pieces

Staining/Finishing:

- the construction company I was subcontracted by has their own painters that will be doing the job come spring, I assume
- they will be PAINTING (yes, painting) the neighbours' sides of the fence and staining the owners' side/gates
- they would have been better off paying me to pre-stain the gates prior to and after assembly but "what do I know"
- all this is the constrcution company's problem now, like I said "what do I know"


Did that answer all the questions?

P.S. Pricing? PM me as I won't post it here
