DIY – Screening In A Small Porch or Deck

DIY – Screening In A Small Porch or Deck

Basic carpentry using half & cross lap joints. Basic technique that can be used in framing a porch or deck area in to add bug screening. A Big Box screen framing kit material was used. However, the use of the kit did not save time or money. The final appearance looked good, but it could have been achieved with wood trim at a lesser cost. Time was consumed in rolling in the screen spline which gets easier with practice, but is trying at the very start.

Nice job. I agree, rolling the spline to get the screen tight is a pain in the butt.

Did you secure the bottom boards to the patio floor with screws? I have a concrete patio and am unsure what to do in that regard.

Hi, I have a farmer's porch and was wondering if it would look OK to screen part or all of it being on the front of the house in a metro area

Thumbs up you remind me of my dad man I almost shed a tear in his memory!! Excellent work sir “from nothing to something all by hand!!!” I think a lot of comments are just frustrated people who didn’t think some skill would be involved lol. I’m not afraid of a saw and it’s pretty simple. Just moved to Florida keeping this video handy. Thank you sir and God Bless!!!
