Are you feeling a little exposed, while adding privacy to your backyard can be as easy as building some simple screens short well? this is a really versatile design that you can build in various heights to achieve a clean, stylish. Look like this get started by laying out all your supplies, I love that Lowe's will cut the lumber to size for you. You can download the supply list, along with the step-by-step instructions. This screen gets built from the inside out, so we're gonna start with the interior frame. Once your inner frame is built, it gets attached to the outer post with screws.
The posts are just two by sixes with a 2x4 sandwiched in between. This is a great time to stop and make sure that everything's squared up so before you attach the interior frame to your posts, you're going to want to use this framing square and just make sure that you've got everything all lined up right. Remember when you're screwing into the end of narrow pieces you'll want to drill a pilot hole to prevent splitting. Now you can finish putting in the rest of the horizontal rails. Now, it's time to add a little flash to your screen, make sure you're wearing gloves when you do this with the flashing is sharp and you don't want to cut yourself just use a simple over-under weaving technique like you're weaving a basket and attach it to the Inside face of the post with sheet metal screws, so the final step in your screen assembly is adding your last two by six posts.
The great thing about cedar is, you can either use it natural or you can stain it before you ever dig. You should call your local utility locating service to check the area wouldn't want to suffer any services. We should probably get a tape. Measure spend a little time thinking about the layout of your screens. You want to position them to get the maximum amount of privacy, but you also want the layout to make sense in relation to your house. Once you've marked the spots you can start digging, the depth of the holes will depend on the code near the area so check with your local building officials. This is when you really get to see my muscles at work. Depending on your soil. You may want to rent an auger to get the job done more efficiently to prep the holes place. Some gravel in the bottom for drainage then place the legs of the screen into the holes.
