I am going to be putting in a 6' high PT fence up in Ontario (frost an issue). I have a small backyard (19' deep) because it's a townhouse. I have two questions about the installation.

1) the 2 sides that I am building will meet up with the house at one end. How do I attach these? Can I bolt 2x6's to the house and attach the fence panel to this?

2) I am going to use 6" x 6" posts and want to know how much of the post actually has to be below ground in the concrete (i'm digging down almost 4') for a 6 foot high fence.

You'll be better off putting posts in the ground right next to the townhouse, but you shouldn't connect the fence to the townhouse as that could be seen as just asking for trouble.
