22.1 Privacy Screens: Lattice Privacy Screen

This privacy screen is made with handmade square lattice with 1 1/2" spaces. It could also be made with lath or 1x2. Be sure the staples are facing the outside of the deck. If you use angled lattice it is installed in the same way. 1x2 is used to frame the lattice and can be routered in the outside edge to give a more finished professional look.

22. Privacy Screens

Privacy screen posts are installed the same way as rail posts, with each of them set inside the outside joist and/or faceplate. Match the space from the bottom 2X4 framing member to the top of the deck surface the same space as the railing horizontal bottom space. Install the top 2X4 at the finished height of the privacy screens less the thickness of the finished top rail. Privacy screens are often trimmed in with routered 1X2 trim around the perimeter to give it a more finished, professional look.
