Yes, this great looking fence has a very real function about it. You see the Classic American Natural Wood Privacy fence is similar with the same posts, rails and pickets but built totally different. The Classic Dog Ear fence is built using a string to keep the top of the fence in line uniform shape.
Charleston Natural Wood privacy fence is built using french gothic posts set to height on installation. The backing rails are measured from the bottom of the notch to give it a clean look even while going over bumps and dips in the fence line. Picket boards are set to the ground to close out any gapping that might occur. You don’t have to worry about the top being straight, the top trim out is the last step here.
By nailing the pickets down to the ground we have effectively closed up any gaps under the fence. The actual height of the Charleston Natural Wood Privacy Fence is about 5-1/2′ at center and 5′ at the post.
Posts are set evenly across each line maintaining a spacing of 7′-8′ apart. By keeping the spacing uniform across the line, that will also keep the arc trim out the same on the entire line.
Now I have seen CRAZY arcs cut into some fence lines, such as 10′ next to gate at 4′, with a 5′ section next to that. It merely means that the installation crew and maybe the fence company did not know how to lay out the posts. Attempt should be made to keep all line sections evenly spaced and the post spacing between 7′ and 8′ for consistency
Notice on the double gate to the above right has some interesting construction that is standard on our gates. First the gates are double posted on the hinge side. Lots of dead weight gets extra support to carry the heavy natural wood panel. Next we use THREE large black metal hinges per gate panel on privacy gates to insure control of gate panel. The gate panels are built with 2″ x 4″ structure, the framing is double Z Bar framing for additional strength. Double gates have TWO drop rods and top latch for complete security.
