Looking for carpenter to install fence in North-Central IL

Hi everyone,
I'm so excited, I'm planning my small acreage horse farm - the dream of my life. I would like to know if anyone knows a fence installer in North Central Illinois. I have a two acre pasture, 296.15 x 295. 16 (perfectly square) lot on all level ground with easy road access and am seeking a three rail wood fence with round posts. I'm disappointed with local contractor quotes and am looking for a semi-professional (not a contractor) handyman who might consider installing a two acre fence for a reasonable price.

Building such a fence is the most expensive one can build because the work has to be meticulous or it's soon a sorry looking sight. If you wish to go ahead with this you will need a reputable outfit who guarantees their work, in writing - likely fencing specialists. And there are businesses who specialize in fencing so it might be best to talk to a few of them.

Thank you, I will give your post some serious consideration - I understand what you mean. A neighbor put up his own fence (and he's pretty handy too, he built my house!) and it's already starting to lean...
