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.
  • (Terrain) Can't be build on Ice.

  • Hairy Mallard (2016-12-14) >"Added bigger gates, When you place a cornerpost in preparation for a gate, you may now choose to place the second cornerpost two or three tiles apart, by simply holding the placement cursor farther away. If the latter, you will place and build a three tile wide gate, rather than a two tile wide one. Otherwise pretty self-explanatory. May add even larger gates in the future."
