alexh asked How much would it cost to self instal a metal or wood fence?

by like square feet… whatever the rate is. What is the rate (about) and what is cheaper?

And got the following answer:

I actually put in my own fence last summer. I chose to go with a shadowbox dogear. Shadowbox is vertical planks that are staggered every other on opposite sides. Dogear planks are angled on the top corners. The 6′ prebuilt panels were selling for $65 at our local big box stores. I ended up not buying prebuilt panels, but rather building the fence from scratch as I went along so that I didn’t have to space my posts exactly the width of the prebuilt panels.

Both of my neighbors already had fences installed, so the sides of my yard were already done. All I had to do was the very back, and the front sides connecting to the house. Total linear feet was 130′. I was quoted $2400 and $2900 for 6′ high, treated lumber dogear shadbowbox. I did it myself, and with tool rentals and all, it cost $1300. I spread it out over 2 weekends. I only had help with digging the holes – I did everything else myself. I used stakes to hold the posts while I filled all of them with (3-4) 80# bags of concrete. I had 24 posts total.

The first weekend I dug all of the holes 42″ deep, put a little gravel, and a little dry concrete down there (per the quikcrete instructions), and I set all of the posts ~ 6.5′-7.0′ apart.

The following weekend after the concrete cured, I put 3 rows of horizontal 2×4’s connecting the posts. From there I began nailing the vertical dogear pickets in a shadowbox pattern. Make a template/spacer, rent or borrow a roofing nailer, and this part will fly. For the gate(s), I bought a steel frame template which made it a breeze.

All in all, the toughest part of the entire project was digging the holes. I rented a trailered hydraulic auger from Home Depot which lessened the hassle, but it was still my least favorite part. Also, when digging the holes, make sure to somewhat “mushroom” out the bottom of the holes. This way concrete will fill that void and create a sort of anchor so that they won’t lift out of the ground. In the midwest, you will see a lot of fence posts lifted out of the ground because they didn’t go deep enough. The mushrooming strengthens it that much more.

Materials if you want to build a similar fence:
4″x4″x10′ treated posts
1″x6″x6′ dogear treated pickets
2″x4″x8′ treated rails
3-4 80# bags of quikcrete per posthole
Gravel for the bottom of the postholes
A roofing nailer loaded with 1 3/4″ nails
3 1/2″ screws for the 2×4 rails into the posts
Fence gate steel frame for each gate

You can also use this tool to give you some idea of materials needed.

Laura asked What kind of nail gun should I use to build a wall? ?

I’m putting up a wall in my house. What kind of nail gun and nails do I need? Can I use my drywall screwdriver instead of a nail gun?

And got the following answer:

You need a framing nailer, used with 3″ or 3-1/4″ nails. Paslode, Senco, Hitachi, and Porter-Cable all make excellent nailers. You can’t use a drywall gun, since it won’t have enough torque to drive 3″ screws. Nails have a lot more shear strength than screws, anyway, so stick to the nailer. Paslode also makes an excellent cordless framing gun that uses batteries and fuel cells. It is expensive to buy and operate though, for a DIY job. You can probably rent the whole setup at a good rental yard. Hope this helps.
