To secure with nails or screws. the laths to the rafters
A short nail with a large flat head used for securing roofing felt, plasterboard, sheet metal to wood etc. the 50mm x 50mm (2″x2″) laths to the rafters.
Begin the first A narrow thin strip of wood. Laths are the vertical and horizontal or diagonal strips of wood used in latticework Also wood strips used as backing for plaster. 30mm (1 1/4″) down from the tops of the rafters and space all the rest 100mm (4″) from center to center.
Ensure the laths’ overhang is the same at both ends.
Fix the A shelter of vines or branches or of latticework covered with climbing shrubs or vines. A walk through Garden structure that can support plants and generally complements the landscape. top in place
Now it’s just simply a matter of lifting the arbor top onto the posts.
It is reasonably heavy so it will probably take at least two people to lift it up to the posts and position it correctly.
Once positioned, it can be nailed in place.
Make the frame for the Framework consisting of an ornamental design made of strips of wood or metal. A framework of crossed wood or metal strips.
The lattice frames (one each side of the arbor) comprise the posts, the beams and the lower blocks.
Complete the lattice frames by fixing a 100mm x 100mm (4″x4″) Blocking. A pieces of wood that runs between other members (studs, joists, rafters) to provide support, add strength and/or act as a solid support between panel joins. approximately 1550mm (62″) below each A supporting member..
Fit the Lattice
The objective is to sandwich the lattice between two pieces of Timber, lumber. The hard fibrous lignified substance under the bark of trees (stops) that are fixed to the frame.
The frame is the posts, beam and lower block.
25mm x 25mm (1″x1″) square stops are used in this project.
- Firstly, fix the stops around the inside of the frame to one side only.
- Insert the lattice.
- Fix the stops against the lattice on the other side (see drawing).
There is a detailed account of how to install lattice here.
