Decorative Fence Construction with CMC
Charlie Mike Construction accepted a project recently that required a fence to do be duplicated with an existing fence that had an iron clover leaf and a Texas star header above the gate. This board on board project was not for the amateur fence contractor and was actually bid twice by other companies before they informed this client they just couldn’t do it. We at Charlie Mike Construction can handle any commercial or residential project regardless of the size of difficulty but this one was was really challenging.

The first step was to obviously set the 11′ posts 2 1/2 feet in the ground with Maximizer Concrete and then set our rails. (stringers) Step two consisted of installing our true 1” x 6” x 8′ cedar pickets, top trim and pressure treated kickboard. Then we were ready to build our signature 3 hinge custom gate that will last the test of time. Finally we cut out the clover in the fence door and inserted a powder coated design to match the neighbors fence. If you look at the upper left and upper right pictures below, you’ll see where were at this stage. Also notice that above the gate you can still see through the board on board fence as we allowed roof for the header.
Now is the time that separates the men from the boys and we had to custom make this gate header out of a 2×8 cedar board. The picture on the bottom left below shows you what it looked like after we spend 3 hours with a router getting everything perfect. Once we returned to the project after the weekend and a small rain delay, our customer had already stained the portion that was had installed. In the picture on the bottom right, you can clearly see the final product that was delivered by Charlie Mike Construction. We are very proud of our work and are looking forward to the next challenging job in the North Texas area.
