It started out pretty wobbly, but after the first course of pallets was it was pretty solid. The walls were tied together and secured with the metal plates you see in the picture and a bunch of deck screws and 16d spikes.

Outside, too, there are many corrugated metal DIY projects to spend this weekend completing. If you happen upon smaller scraps of sheeting (or discarded tin ceiling tiles), remember that they are anything but useless. Some links (like Amazon) go to shops via my affiliate accounts—or to eBay, where I write a blog.

Although often a second choice, sliding gates can provide you with the kind of entrance you're looking for. Sliding gates do offer you the advantage of being able to fit where a traditional swing gate wouldn't, offering you nearly the same aesthetic and security advantages. Sliding gates are hung in either a tracked style, where the bottom of the gate has runners which glide along an embedded tracking or cantilever style using a series of guides and balancing, avoiding the need for ground tracking and the additional maintenance required. Tracked sliding gates are a straightforward and economical way of installing sliding gates. The tracking on the gate needs to be kept clear from debris which could impair the smooth operation of your gate, but with a quick regular sweep there is no reason that your sliding tracked gate will give you any problems during its lifetime. However due to the nature of the cantilever design, and additional section of gate is required to 'hang' over the guides (As demonstrated in the picture above), often behind a wall or hedge perimeter. The professional tools are expensive, but after you learn to measure, cut and weld, you can just make them.

Indeed a sliding gate is often more secure once locked as the gates weak points are usually less accessible and the single structure design ensures additional prevention from the gate being driven into.
This means that additional room is needed beside the gateway than a tracked version and may prevent you from choosing this option. Some C-Channel, rollers, bearings and a bottle jack — You have yourself a useful tool for you metal workshop.
This is one of those examples where the artist perfectly captured the essence of woodpeckers. Cantilever gates are quieter than tracked gates and reduce the need to keep the tracking clear of debris.
