9 year followup on my gate project


Our house is near a busy street in a big city where big gates / fences are the norm. I posted the original construction here: https://ift.tt/3cLXY3q, its been 9 years now and I thought I post a followup. Everything is holding strong. No real problems except having to tighten the hinge bolts on the gates every few years, and re-stain the south facing wood slats every 4 or 5 years. Otherwise all is holding up well. PT posts 6×6 and 6×8 in concrete with gravel drains. Clear douglas fir slats. SS screws. Oil based tinted stain.Oh, I built a low deck too. PT 2×6 framing on bricks, Trex decking, SS screws.​Initial build:https://preview.redd.it/anj97pngfqf61.jpg?width=1024&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=7036824a32f5e97b61359f176dc91f057d36370ahttps://preview.redd.it/0lc9cpngfqf61.jpg?width=1024&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=e2cc7e3752909d40b06702563372a42aa732f95dhttps://preview.redd.it/hjl30sbjfqf61.jpg?width=768&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=122455db84d2a02a36559ad5501b858a117a8df6​9 yr followup:​https://ift.tt/3tH3M4y via /r/DIY https://ift.tt/3pUxfpg
