    Default Fence Gate Rough Opening

    I'm building a stock fence but am going to install the gates at a later date. How wide should I leave the openings so that standard 8' (vehicle) and 4' people gates can be installed..? i.e. how much room should be left for hardware..? I would prefer to purchase the gates rather than build them and would like to avoid having something custom built. Any ideas would be great.. Thanks.

    8' and 4' opening, the gates them self are narrower that 8' and 4' to allow for the hardware.
