BUILDING a fence: GATES

BUILDING a fence: GATES



For the gates:
I bought 2 gate kits from menards. These are essentially frames, which makes building the gates a cinch, relatively. The most important part was measuring, making sure the gate fits perfectly with the closure.

Supplies for 2 gates:
2 gate kits
8 – 2x4s (cut to size) – PLEASE measure well; the gate can’t be even the slightest too small or big.
12 – extra fence pickets (these can be purchased separately at menards)
2 – 2 gate latches (of your choice)

HOW TO:
I’m going to be lazy again… Take a look at the pic on the gate kits, and figure it out 🙂

Ps You’ll notice, I hadn’t quiet finished the little section of fence next to the front gate (top pic). It’s finished now. I just added a couple 2x4s and a few more pickets (bought separately).

As promised – a couple more finished fence pics:
