The screens will be built inside out, so start by building the interior frame. Once the inner frame is built, attach to the outside posts with screws.

The posts are just two 2 x 6s with a 2 x 4 in between. Make sure everything is squared up before attaching. Now you can add the rest of the horizontal rails and the metal flashing.

Weave the metal flashing (while wearing gloves) and screw them in with sheet metal screws. The last step is to attach the last two 2 x 6 posts. Stain the lumber to your liking.

After the building is complete, think about the layout of the screens. Once you have marked the spots for the posts, dig the holes (check with your local utility locating service beforehand).Now you can place the screens into the post holes and add concrete. Adjust your screens until they are level and the concrete is still setting.
