I built a little galvanized steel chainlink fence to enclose my small backyard using this book. I could've used a bit more detail on certain steps, like installing tension wire or attaching the stretched fence fabric to the tension bands (both required a little more muscle power than I thought they would), but, overall, this book got the job done. I built the exact size chainlink fence specified in the book (48" high with 2 3/8" diameter terminal posts and 1 5/8" line posts) and hand-dug the post holes. I also installed a drive gate and a walk gate. Measuring the gate posts exactly to fit the gates were the biggest challenge, since you are also simultaneously plumbing the posts. The tip to use a 2x4 spacer was crucial. I saved over a thousand dollars doing this project myself and have next to zero experience, as a brand new homeowner. Next project: pouring footers for a short garden wall, also using this book! Highly recommended.
