Carpentry interlude – crawl space covers

It’s not fine woodworking, but over a few weekends we replaced the flimsy crawlspace cover lattice that skirted our house.

I don’t enjoy house carpentry, so went for methods that got the job over as quickly as possible: using heavy-duty staples as fasteners and a circular saw to cut the pressure treated pine boards on my WorkMate.

The new covers are mitered frames filled in with a wire mesh. They were painted the same colour as the siding and screwed to the house so that they can be easily removed when we need to get under the house.
