Space did not permit four posts in the ground

Had to buy a table saw to rip 5/4 decking boards; first ripped the edges off, then down the middle. With full exposure to the sun all day, did nor want to trust the pickets to anything less than an inch thick. All the fasteners are stainless steel owing to being so close to the ocean. We carried the made for ground contact side boards into the ground and cemented them with 80 lbs of concrete.

    • Maybe not entirely brilliant, it was a simple way to work with a small area. Have been wanting to build one since about a year; was just look for an opportunity. The 5/4 decking board had the thickness that could withstand the elements, it just had to be ripped. Glad you liked it!
