Privacy Fence Keeping costs down

Hi, Due to some really bad neighbors we are going to have to build a privacy fence about 8 foot tall. Does anyone know how to keep the costs down? Yes, my husband will be building it. We can't afford to hire someone to do it, we didnt plan on this until recently...and it has to be done.

    It seems here in Wis. wood is very expensive....anyone have any ideas

    on how to find cheaper wood/fence?

    Thanks in advance.

    First check with your city/county building permit department
    you may have restrictions on fencing. Common restriction
    is 6 foot in height. Go to the library for a book about building
    a fence...you'll be surprised how many idea you'll find for low
    cost fencing for privacy. Dog containment is another issue
    and cost...but peeping eyes should be a big cost.

    Here in FLA I know a few people who built privacy fences by going to a

    saw mill and getting the partial rounded end boards from the

    beginning cuts of a log, these usually sell really cheap and look nice

    and rustic.

    Hi Mem68



    There is a Cactus Garden in Bisbee Az that used old

    pallets & cement





    They ran two rows of pallets then filled the middle

    with junk , put chicken wire on it, you want to ask

    for stucco wire it is the same just not as shiney and

    way cheaper. Then covered it with kwik mix cement.

    It's a lot of work but would be very sturdy.



    They one a award for it too.



    I tired to get the web page addy but no luck, they are

    nice people and maybe you should she if you can find


    them on the net www.arizonacactusgarden.com

    Does your area have a Habitat for Humanity Rediscover store? That is a store that sells used building supplies with some life left in them and partial pieces of plywood, dry wall, etc. to the general public and the procedes benefit Habitat for Humanity. We have a gerat one here in Kansas City.


    We shared the cost of building a privacy fence on part of our lot with our neighbor, is that a possibility, approach these &#39;awful&#39; neighbors and ask them if they would like to build a privacy fence and share the cost with you. Good fences make good neighbors. Those are the two ideas that come to my mind.
