I want to extend my fence up to my garage which a single storey flat roof.

The obvious problem being that I wouldn't be able to slide in or out a fence panel due to the overhang of the soffit.

The simplest way I could see was to use an end post and grind off one of the lips (turning a square U shape into more of an L shape) so that this last panel could be slotted into the second from last post then swung backwards onto the rear lip of the end post and secured at the front with a piece of matching fence panel batten.

I guess nobody makes posts already in this shape do they? I can't seem to find any on Google.

The only other alternative solution I could see was to fit a normal post and split the fence panel down the middle, then find a way to make the centre join strong.

Any thoughts?

To be honest you will find that most fence panels will flex enough to allow you to wedge and shoe-horn them in without slotting in from above. You may slightly superficially damage the panel but it sounds like it's quite an inconspicuous spot.

If I have understood you correctly there is a simple solution.

Dig your hole for the post, insert the fence panel in place, position the post, and concrete in place.

Thanks to both of you for the replies :D

I see what you mean, I think i'll give that a try. I do have to cut the panel down anyway so maybe I could put the bracing pieces on once the panel is in place, this would give me extra flexibility.
