How to Build an Outdoor Clothes Line With PVC Pipe

    • 1). Lay all four 1 1/2-foot PVC pipe pieces horizontally on a flat surface. Apply rubber cement to one end of each in an approximately 1-inch-thick band.

    • 2). Insert the glued ends into the top two sides of the PVC T joints. Repeat this until both T joints have two 1 1/2-foot PVC pipes connected to them.

    • 3). Apply a 1-inch-thick ring of rubber cement to one end of one piece of 8-foot PVC section and insert the glued end into the bottom of the T joint. Repeat this with the remaining 8-foot pipe section and T joint. You will now have two T-shaped pipe pieces.

    • 4). Lay the two T structures on a flat surface. Measure 6 inches in from each end of the top of the T structure and mark the spots with the permanent marker. Make an additional mark at the direct center of each T structure.

    • 5). Drill a hole through each of the six marks and screw one eye screw into each hole.

    • 6). Determine where you would like your clothes line to be located in your yard; mark two spots 18 feet apart for the two posts. Dig 24-inch-deep holes in both spots.

    • 7). Mix the concrete in a bucket and fill each hole approximately 18 inches full of cement. Insert one pole into each hole facing the eye screws on each post toward each other. Fill the remainder of the hole with the concrete mixture and allow the concrete to set for 24 hours.

    • 8). Tie the laundry string tightly to an eye screw on the outside end of one of the T structures. Loop the string to the eye screw directly across from it. Loop the string over the nearest center eye screw (the string should now be in an L shape), and then pull the string across to the opposite T structure's center hole. Loop the string on the second center eye screw, then loop the string through the nearest remaining eye screw and pull it across to the opposite T structure.

    • 9). Pull the string as tight as possible, then tie the end to the final eye screw.
