I went to the Lowe's hardware site online and used their "shopping cart" feature to calculate the price of the materials I need for the last panel of new fence on the south side of the house. 19 cedar pickets, 3 10' 2x4s, and a box of deck screws. I still have about a half gallon of the weather-proof treatment, no need for more yet. It is estimated to be $83.46, and my time and labor. I have the reclaimed hardware from taking down the rest of the fence, so that's a nice savings. I need the 2x4s to be just a little under 9', so if the 10' pieces don't fit in the SUV I'll take along a carpenter's saw and trim off a foot in the parking lot. I'm pretty sure those will fit (everything was 6' and 8' on the other panels I worked on, this is the last piece and it extends just a little longer from the last post to the brick side of the house.)
This is me doing the math, I'm not working on it right now, maybe in a week or two. Right now I need to mow and then head for the garden.
