comments (2) July 16th, 2013 in Blogs


Produced by: Justin Fink, Andy Engel, and Colin Russell


Editors Justin Fink and Andy Engel layout and set posts, and assemble new fence panels at the Fine Homebuilding Project House.

Here's what you will see in the above videos:

Episode 1.
Tape measures and strings are the main tools needed to lay out a fence. Justin and Andy show how to establish a square corner and mark the ground for fence posts.

Episode 2.
Digging holes is easier with the right tools. With Andy on the digging bar and Justin wielding the shovel, we quickly get to the bottom of things.

Episode 3.
Justin and Andy reveal some tricks about mixing concrete in a wheelbarrow, and demonstrate how to install vinyl-panel privacy fencing.
