Attaching privacy fence to brick veneer of a house
We're rebuilding a privacy fence along the side of our yard - and want it to be constructed flush with the front of the house. Our area in central Texas is notorious for cracking soils, high winds, etc.; things to consider before building an expensive fence. I'll be using 4X4X10 treated posts, concreting them at least 3' in the ground and cutting off the top 1' - ending up with a 6' fence post. I'd like to attach the first post to the house to add support and rigidity to the fence, but I don't know how to do this without damaging the brick. Does anyone have any ideas on this?
