The Dry Stone fence is not able to protect you from thieves or boars, and is very easily destroyed.

How to Acquire

Begin by constructing a cornerpost and then right click on the cornerpost to expand the fence.

To make a gate, right click a corner post and select "Prepare for gate." You can set the gate to be two spaces wide or three. Build the second corner post up. Finally, right click on one of the cornerposts and select "Build gate." Note that the direction the gate open determines which is inside and outside. This won't matter much for the fence, it does for the Palisade and Brickwall gates as this affects the way keys work.


  • Fences cannot be built on dirt.
  • The appearance of the fence does not change by material - so any stone will do.
