Philippe Description

Here, in In the southern region of France, we have been facing an increasing proliferation of mosquitoes for many years. In order to protect us from this situation, I undertook the manufacture of mosquito nets intended to be installed in each large window.

How I carried out this project

I started with the small windows and now here are the larger ones, carried out later. I obtained 15mm thick marine treated plywood panels from, cut to size. I then made final adjustments such as rounded top edges and central openings, before attaching the aluminum and plastic mosquito nets. The following shows the final result for six windows, the last step will be to varnish them.
