It seems like the projects never end around our house, does anyone else have the same issue? We’ve been in the cabin for 6 years now and things still need to be wrapped up. You know all those things that don’t have to happen to make a home liveable but look better once they’re done?
I was looking for a way to enclose the bottom of the deck that’s off the dining room but didn’t want to block the sunlight from coming in the basement windows. As a last resort lattice was the only option. I’m not a fan of lattice at all but completely enclosing it with tongue and groove lumber would definitely block the sunlight.
I’m not sure if you’ve looked at lattice lately but now it comes in vinyl and most any color you’re looking for. We went with cedar tone because I felt the dark brown was too dark. It was a quick project to put together, all we needed was 3 panels of lattice and the runner pieces that keep it all in its track.
As you can see we did use the tongue and groove lumber at the bottom to fill in the gap. I felt adding more lattice wouldn’t look as good and this way it gave something to screw the runner piece too also, so it worked out perfectly.
I do believe if we keep up at this pace we may conquer all those projects before the summer is over. So far we’ve been doing a good job. Did you happen to notice all the dandelions? We have so many bees and I know the bees feed off them so we never spray to kill them. I hoping all those bee decided to pollinate our fruit trees.
