My brother in law and I built a fence last week. It is a shadow box fence, and it took quite a while to get done, especially since when we dug the holes for the posts, four of them already had concrete in there, from the previous fence.

Materials and tool/truck rentals cost us around $1300 from HD, after they allowed us to return about $300 worth of stuff we over-bought.
Here are some photos showing our work.

even our son helped… a lot!

dirty shoes…

I did most of the “get me that screw” work, and my brother-in-law did most of the real work :O)
Thanks for looking!

handsome fence, looks great on both sides!

Around here, you have to make the ‘other side’ of the fence look good, not just the one facing your property. My wife wants to fence in our yard next summer, adding to favorites so I have a design to show her!

Jean, who knows why. Our customers call it that all the time. We call it Board on Board at our company.

Jean, I don’t really know.
Maybe it is because it looks the same inside and out?
Really, I have no idea.

Ned, that is exactly what we did.
Except for the gate, everything looks the same inside and out.
