Portable Lath House
This airy shelter can be moved wherever you need to shield tender plants or seedlings from full sunlight until they're established.
- 1-by-2-inch wood
- Wood glue
- Finishing nails
- Two galvinized butt hinges
- 1-inch screws
Cut four pieces of standard 1-by-2-inch wood to a length of 28 inches long to make the shelter's legs.
Cut more 1-by-2 or standard lath strips to 36-inch lengths; using wood glue and finishing nails, attach to legs 1 inch apart along the entire length. (We used a 1-inch piece of wood as a spacer to align strips without having to measure.)
Join the two lath panels with two galvanized butt hinges, attaching them to the legs with 1-inch screws.
