Building the privacy fence

Wow, it's been another month since I posted anything again. Sorry about that, things have been really hectic here lately. I've been working on a number of projects. I'll post more about them later, for now I'll post about building our fence, it's what we've been working on for the last week or so.

The fence will be a total of 506 feet long. Here is a picture of the plat with my fence drawn in pencil:

Most of the property line was full of dense, overgrown vegetation. I have cut a line around most of it. To do this I had to find the property corners first, this is not easy without the proper tools, especially on a very old property like this. I used to be a Land Surveyor though so I had that on my side and I was finally able to locate them.

The first part of the fence I built was along the left side of the house (when facing it).

The next day I started on the right property line.

Running string line & digging the post holes

As you can see in the above picture I had to build this part of the fence in an arc, it follows an old granite and concrete wall. The property line is just to the left edge of the fence.

That was as far as I got yesterday before the rains came.
