Custom Fence, Gate and Shelter

We're currently working on a few outdoor projects at one of my client's East Mall residence. The brief was to remove the existing single gate side entrance and rebuild it with a double gated entrance and a custom pergola. A smaller fence was required to separate the driveway from the neighbour's rear walkway. In the rear, a structure was required to cover the space to extend the functionality of the side patio through inclement weather. Some of the challenges we faced were having to dig the 4 foot holes by hand to avoid hitting the gas lines that ran close to the post locations. Everything is coming along nicely except for the rain but progress is still being made. Check out other exterior projects we have completed from custom outdoor kitchens to deck and barn style sheds.

These boards were eventually butted close together as the client wanted more privacy. The curved section at the top was eventually nixed.

The posts have yet to be cut to the desired height.

Testing the look of the purlins on the support beams

All posts cut to height, Purlins affixed and the gate detail cut. Only one handle was fixed here to keep the dog from running out.

A second single gate in the rear of the passage offers privacy from the street

Getting started at the rear. 6x6 column buried 4 feet deep in concrete ensure that this structure is not going anywhere soon.

On the beam end, Simpson Strong Tie hurricane ties will be installed on every rafter

All done. And now on to roofing....
