This is a really simple DIY task to pretty much anybody can tackle with the right toolset it's inexpensive and it's fairly easy. Okay, first things, before we can proceed on this side, we need to do a little bit of maintenance. A la stuff has been overgrown and neglected before we can do any real demo. Okay, we're just removing the top piece of this bench, so we can make room for our posts.
This is pressure treated material in the past pressure treated was always green, but the manufacturers of PT now, in fact, made it brown and colors to resemble cedar and it's a third of the price. In order to fasten this to our existing bench, we're going to use a six-inch lag bolt, but we have to use galvanized because it's exterior work we don't want to rust over time. Bowls are in. Our next step is to determine the height of the privacy screen. So, in order to do that, I've decided to come down 12 inches from the top of our post.
Now this gives us an idea of the height of our privacy screen, so we can put the structure in our top plate and our bottom plate to finish the structure of the privacy screen. We need to divide the privacy screen into equal sections, so we measured in the middle and then we're going to divide it into quarter. So we found our center point. We cut our studs to the appropriate height will level it do. Another section now comes the fun part, putting up the board so for our design purposes. Here we decide to use a three and a half inch board and a one, a half inch board. We'Ve already set up the first quarter, which is in fact two boards we're going to stagger the widths of the boards along with the spacing so here. The next course is going to go up, we've got a half inch spacer, and then we just drill away
