The Qty of 4x4x8′ PT Post is the same for all 3 Styles

  • Divide The Length of Fence by 4′, then add 1 for the Starter Post – 4′ OC required for Wood Fence 6′ High

The Qty of 80lb Concrete Mix is the same for all 3 Styles

  • 1 80lb Bag of Concrete per 4×4

The Qty of 2x4x16′ PT is the same for all 3 Styles

  • Divide Length by 16′ then Multiply by 3 ( 3 runs are required)

*** The Difference comes on the # of 5/8 x 6″ Boards you will be using per Style

  • Standard Gog Ear Fence = Multiply Length by 2.2
  • Shadow Box Fence = Multiply Length by 2.5
  • Board on Board = Multiply Length by 2.5
