I am new here but I am currently in the middle of a fun project that I was hoping to get some help with. I am removing an old chain link fence and building a cedar picket fence instead. The interesting part is I have spacing between the existing posts that varies greatly, see attached for exact measurements.
The posts are also currently 2" OD galvanized steel which I would like to extend 3 ft for additional privacy. My thought right now is to slip a 2 and 3/8" galvanized post over the existing posts and fill with mortar or quick set.
So hoping to get help with.
1. Extending the existing posts. Any ideas other than a slipcover and filling that with mortar?
2. The best strategy for the rails being that they are all awkwardly spaced.
3. Any suggestions for hiding the galvanized posts.
I appreciate any help, thank you.
