Looking at the picture you can see the carport here.
The plan is to fence in our carport so that we can just open the kitchen door to let the dog out in cold and rain so he can go do his business in the back yard or to just enjoy even more space than his current 65x65 fenced domain allows without us having to take him out across the deck to the unreliable gate there.
And to make it all look nice too.
The fixed fence portion between the columns next to the car is
simple enough. Some sort of anchor into the brick and pretty
much anything can be put there.
The first portion (about 36") bolted to the house -for day to
day walking in/out- also isn't too complicated.
Making and installing the 115" gate section across the front
is why I'm here.
This second portion (about 79") will have to be hinged open
EVERY time we take the car in or out (and yeah I'm thinking
about an actuator too) which is a LOT of weight and stress on
Then there's the how to lock it all down when closed issues...
using something that isn't a trip or tire puncture problem.
My first thought is two sections that can fold back on itself:
