Hints and Recommendations
It is recommended that you use outdoor treated timber which comes either smooth or sawn finish.
Use only bolts and screws with a recommended coating for treated timbers to help avoid erosion of the fixings – I prefer to use screws rather than nails, a far better connection and no risk of hammer marks on the timber.
If painting, applying at least 2 coats of paint to all cut ends, notches etc before assembly helps to ensure that not timber is exposed to the elements and thus protecting it further from water rot or termites.
A light sanding between paint coats helps to give a great smooth painted surface
Do as many cuts as possible using a mitre saw with a fine tooth blade, this will give a nice straight cut and better surface for painting
Please follow all safety guidelines when using power tools and machinery
The draw bridge can be hinged to allow for adjustment to any site level. The drawbridge can be made longer to give a flatter landing for the entrance if you prefer. A good heavy duty gate hinge set is ideal.
If you choose to use rope for the lowering and raising of the drawbridge, it is recommended that you provide a means of safety to avoide the drawbridge from lowering by itself, this is solely your responsibility. There a number of suitable rope retaining catches on the market or at the local hardware.
Format of Plans
Working design and construction plans will be supplied ready for printing in A4 and/or A3 size for easy printing on most home printers
All plans have been drawn to scale and will print to scale enabling quick dimension check by the builder if required with a scale ruler
Every intricate individual part of the design has been drawn to scale and they are usually on their own sheet
A final component drawing is provided to show the location of all parts
All designs are based on a flat and level ground/site. Any variations with the level will need to be taken into account before cutting any posts to length
Footing sizes required can vary depending on your wind zone, terrain category and site location, but usually 300x300x300 deep would suffice
Please check with your local council if planning and/or building approval is required before commencing construction
You may be required to lodge a small application for planning and building
