344.12 VIEWERS TO FIX TIME FOR BUILDING.
If fence viewers have divided land and assigned fence responsibilities, they may set in
writing a reasonable time for building the fence, having regard to the season of the year. If either
party fails to build part of the fence within the time assigned, the other party may, after completing
part of the fence, build the other part, and recover the viewers' fees and double the cost of building
the other part, as determined pursuant to this chapter.
