Enclosure to screen hot water tank

This screening enclosure uses lattice to hide a hot water system alongside the side of the house.





The project


Spent a couple of weekends building a screen enclosure to hide our hot water tank. 


I attached one screen to the wall and added a piece of timber to increase the width so it lines up with the post for the gate. Then I used lattice to create an enclosure.
