WOOD DRIVEWAY GATES #5

Ross, CA

The original wood driveway gate design #5 in Marin County, California. Why does Charles love this house? For someone who has spent a lifetime wandering through the most grandiose landscapes and residences in America, this home satisfies a primal contingent: It is simply inviting. You want to know those who lives here. You want them as friends. If for no other reason than you might be invited over to sit beneath the sycamore with a glass of ice tea and an afternoon of small talk. A house to grow old in.

WOOD DRIVEWAY GATES #5-1

To maintain the equal grid sizes both vertically and horizontally, and yet also maintain a fixed height, we have added a little to the width of both the top and bottom rails.

WOOD DRIVEWAY GATES #5-1

Piedmont, CA

Cedar driveway gates #5-1, showing the setback from the sidewalk. Most codes requires a minimum of 12′ setbacks for driveway gates. This is to insure you’re not block traffic while idling in the street while your gates automatically open. At 12′, even out-swing gates do not impede on the sidewalk easement.

WOOD DRIVEWAY GATES #5-2

Lead by the math toward an allowance of equal grids vertically and horizontally,, we are left with a bottom rail that is 13-5/8″ width.

Our net width per gate is 49-1/2″. Less the combined width of the two stiles and we have 39 to work with. Less the 3 vertical dividers and we’re down to 31-1/8″ divided by 4 grids equals 7.781″ per grid. This gives us equal grids across, and if we want to establish the grids as squares –which defines the #5 Drive Gate– we’re relegated to that dimension vertically as well. At 46-1/2″ net ht, the only solution available is the bottom rail at 13-5/8″.

Or to reduce the size of the grids dramatically from 7.781″ to something like 4″, which becomes an entirely new aesthetic.

WOODEN DRIVEWAY GATES #5-2

Piedmont, CA (East Bay Hills)

A fairly narrow opening of only 10-ft by 48″ ht. We must assume the wooden entrance gates will eventually match the finish of the house trim.
