Hi there, im new to this forum and am excited to have found it! (just dont tell my wife)...
Im a complete novice but i consider myself somewhat capable/handy...
My question involves building two gates for my yard. The fence is already up. My problem is that the last fence post (6x6) on both sides are not "even" with side of house (brick and foundation). The gates would be erected on an angle. And i have purchased two gate kits from home depot http://www.homedepot.ca/product/gate-kit/971860
1. I have alot of clay soil so digging a post hole right next to the house is not something i think i want to do. Can i just tapcon a 2x4 to the wall and have that side serve as the latch side?
2. Any suggestions regarding the fact that the gate will be at roughly a 45 angle when shut? im having trouble visualizing how the latch would mount/function as a result.
Thank you very much!
