Estimating Quantities for Black Post & Rail Style - 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.

Install the 8' 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
  • 27 - 8' rails
  • 3 - 3' rails (cut down from two 8' rails)
  • 11 post caps (included with posts)

There are 3 rails of different lengths. Leftovers, which can be used elsewhere on this project are: 1 - 2' rail and 1 - 5' rail.
