Build a Privacy Fence : Finishing Your Privacy Fence


Hi, I’m Mark Sullivan for Expert Village.
Today we will show you how to build a privacy fence around your yard. This is the inside
of a typical fence you have your 4×4 post set in concrete. Then the 2×4 rails or runner
set sideways. Then the pickets are screwed on to the outside of the fence. Generally
you do want to have it like this where the pickets are on the outside so that anybody
cannot step to the rails and climb over your fence. So you want to put the picket on the
outside so people cannot climb over your fence. This fence generally I like to use longer
2x4s so that they extend beyond the 4×4. But this particular fence has 2x4s set in place
like this. They are set in concrete and this is a 6 foot privacy fence.

    post rot depends on the lumber you use. and if you use a pressure treated wood that is desgined for ground contact, you dont have to mix at all. just set the post dry.
