How to Build a Gate for a Fence
Learn how to build and install an outdoor arbor gate; includes step-by-step instructions along with tips.
When I visited the town of Gloucester, Massachusetts, America's oldest seaport. I met Mike Carrigan and Lisa Hollett They're proud of this town's history and they like their home to reflect traditional New England style. That's why they enclosed their deck with a classic latticework fence, featuring a decorative archway over the stairs. The deck was perfect until their two-year-old daughter, Kashlyn, began pushing farther and farther in her childhood explorations. Now, the family needs a gate under the archway and I'm going to help them build it.
