I started building a privacy fence for our homestead using sawmill slab wood and sawmill scrap lumber. The only new pieces I am using are the treated lumber posts, screws and cement.

I get a full load of sawmill slab wood or sawmill scraps for $10. Each load weighs about 3,200 pounds and measures about 4 ft round by 8 to 12 feet long. It is a full cord of wood.

I am building a fort around our homestead for safety and security. And it will keep our animals inside while keeping predators outside. This is also to provide privacy for our family.

I put in the three posts and then used 2x4 lumber to fasten them together and get them plumb. This helps me a lot when I am putting in the cement because I only have one direction to get plumb then.

I finished up using slab wood which I debarked to extend its life. Then I started cutting pickets using slab wood at 6 foot lengths.

I managed to get about 8.5 feet of picket fence done before I ran out of daylight and had to clean up and put my chain link fence back together for the night.

I think it looks good and it is doing its job.
