Hi I'm Mark Sullivan for Expert Village. Today we would show you how to build a privacy fence around your yard. As we have pounded in these temporary stakes with our hammer, so we pound those in and then we are going to take our small bugle head Philip screw and attach the temporary brace to the post. Oops, it split so we are going to start at another place, we are going to go down to here. Oops, it is splitting there also. So what we are going to do in this case, we need to kind of pre-drill. So I'm going to try it again. I'm going to go back and try it again. It is starting to split but I think it would hold. So that is holding enough to hold it level in each direction. That looks good.
