Please help!!! Very Confused!!! (chain link fence gate)

I am trying to install a chain link fence. We are almost done but now we are confused.
How do you install a chain link fence gate between the house and garage? The house is brick wall and the garage is plastic....and the ground is cement. So we cant dig up and put in posts. So how would i go about installing the gate? Please HELP!!!!! Thank you!!

Core Drill

You will either need to attach the posts to the house and garage or get a core drill and drill a hole in the concrete for the post to go through.

I'd drill through the concrete rather than putting holes into the house or garage that could lead to leaks in the future.

Not sure how close to the edge of concrete you can drill though.

Gate

Is the gate already built? If so, how much space between the ends of the gate and the house/garage?

The easiest thing to do is go to yoour local fence supplier and have 2 post made with 6x6 plates on them. Then you just mount the post to the concrete using anchor bolts.

WE can fit 1 pole on the side with the gate latch....besides that we cant fit aother pole....the side that will not have a pole will be the side touching the rick wall....i have looked at some neighbor houses but they all got lucky....they already had what they needed before they moved in. And we can not dig into the concrete because we live in military housing and they dont allow that

Then you can get wall mount hinges from your local fence supplier and attach them to the brick using anchor bolts
