I just found this site last night and I love this idea! I am very much a begginer in the DIY world but want to do something with my hands that I can be proud of! I think I will be a regualr here given I am also looking to do a deck and a possibly a pergola.
So my first project is down the side of my house- I am looking at putting a gate in. The space is roughly 1600 wide. I am wanting to have access down the side if needed (very rarely) so I dont want to put a post in between. I am unsure if I should make two symetrical gates at 800 each or make a main gate at 1200. Given the location I am looking to cement one post in (fence side) and dynabolt the other side to the house.
The other thing I am not sure on is what to use on the front of the gate? I would like a horizontal dark wood look to match the house.
Thanks again for joining us and a very warm welcome to the community. Feel free to post whenever you need a hand with a home improvement project or have something to share. We look forward to seeing how this project and many others progress in the coming weeks and months...
