We are rebuilding our house. These posts are 104 inches apart. I am second guessing not having a post in the corner. Should we put a post in the corner and then another one at the end the same distance apart? Like so:Corner post 30" from next postNext three posts 104" apart30" between fourth and fifth postsThe 30" is a guesstimate. I am not at the house while writing this so I don't have the exact measurement.Would that look dumb? I like how the two posts in front of the front door mirror the edges of the sidewalk but then it leaves us with the odd amount left before the corner hits.
