Concrete Post Heavy-Duty Fence
"We needed a long lasting fence gate that wouldn't sag, wouldn't rot, and that would stand up to moose," says Art Skoog, Eagle River, Alaska, who made heavy fence posts out of concrete.
Each gate post measures 2 ft. square by 16 ft. tall and stands on top of a 3 by 3 by 1-ft. footing buried 7 ft. in the ground to resist frost. Each post extends 10 ft. above ground. Each post was poured solid with hand mixed concrete - 2.7 yards each.
The posts support a pair of 14-ft. galvanized gates. Hinges were cast in place. "The posts have a real solid feel to them and should last virtually forever," says Skoog, who used house numbers to mold the date he built the gate into the posts.
