I was calling my trellis the 'Mother of all trellises" but that was being a little presumptuous. The cyclone fence around the garden was four feet tall and I thought that would be a little small for summer squash. My DW and I love the Butterbush squash and it vines about five or six feet so I wanted to increase the height of the existing fence to six feet high. John

Hi John
That should do it. Looks good.
Needs to be strong enough to hold the weight of the squash you'll have with the good soil I see? :)
Going to get big, you'll need the MOT (Mother Of all Trellises) for support.
