Short gate on tall fence


Recommended Posts



I'm hoping somebody can help. I'm trying to put in a short gate on a tall fence. When I shorten the gate, a wall is built above. I also want the gate to be about 5" off the ground but a wall is built below it too. Any guidance is appreciated!

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.


You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.


Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.


And, turn on signature display too.

Sorry about that! I’ve made the updates to my signature line. 

I found some information on fences, gates and doors. But I’m unable to find anything that touches on this specific problem.


Thanks for your patience and advice.
