Estimating Quantities for Post & Rail Styles - Part 4 || Style Index

Confused from the previous page? Let's illustrate the 75' line in our previous example.

The drawing below shows the elevation of the 75' line. We had figured 10 - 8' sections previously counting the part section on the end.

If you look carefully, you can see that starting on the left hand side we began with a 16' rail on top, an 8' rail in the middle and a 16' rail on the bottom.

We then alternate the 16' rails until we get to the other end and cut the rails to fit. You will recall from the job layout example, that the two ends of this 75' line are corner posts.

Material needed:

  • 2 corner posts
  • 9 line posts
  • 1 - 8' rail
  • 14 - 16' rails
  • 11 post caps
  • 32 locking rings (2 per rail)

There are 16 separate rails of different lengths. The locking rings required are 2 per rail. Leftovers, which can be used elsewhere on this project are: 1 - 2' rail and 1 - 5' rail.
