I will show how simple and fast it is to build a barbed wire, electrical wire or chain link fence. Barbed wire is the easiest and most economical. It does not require any electricity or special equipment. You start by pounding metal or wood fence posts usually every 8 feet. On each end of the fence you pound 2 posts 3 feet apart and later nail a post on a diagonal starting at the top of the end post and fastening to the bottom of the second last post. It then stops the last post from bending when the wire is tightened.

Then roll out the wire usually 3 or 4 strands depending on what will be inside the fence. Tighten the wire and staple it evenly spaced to the posts. How to build wire fence? Electrical wire is the fastest fence to build although requires an electric fencer to create electric shock. Generally insulated posts are used that way the wire does not have a path to ground. Te posts are pushed in and one or two wires are rolled out and clipped in the slots in the posts. Tightened and hooked to an electrical source creates a quick means of containing animals.

Chain link fences are more difficult to build. First you pound or drill the metal posts in the ground all to the same height. Then roll out the wire and tie wire it to the posts. Caps are put on the posts as well as brackets to hold a top rail which is attached to the top of the wire. All three methods of fencing can easily be done, once you decide which type best suits your situation and a little bit of figuring you will have no trouble how to build wire fence.
