We're finalizing our Fence Post Installation for Building a Wooden Fence. We hope these instructions are going to help our do it yourself Oklahoma City residential home owners.
Seventh, it may be useful to cement in and level your two terminal or corner posts first, before further building, so you can install a string line near the tops of these two. This way you can stretch a string barely touching the top of these two to get straight posts in between.
Cement your posts and level them side to side and have them not quite touch the string line now stretched across the tops.
If your building a wooden fence line that is spanning a longer distance or if the wind is blowing the string, you may need to “sight” in a pole, in the center, and either tack the line to it or just let the wind blow it against the sighted in post.
Make sure your galvanized posts or wooden posts are all leveled side to side and in-line. You can usually do a fair job of "sighting in" posts in-line, however, side-to-side you will need to use a short level.
You can continue this when building the other lines of fencing. Just be cautious about using the freshly cemented posts for stretching a string line across the tops for the next line of fencing.
You can easily use a screw in the top of a newly installed wooden panel or the neighbors old wooden fence to run your string line.
