Above: John and Juli, proprietors of Mjolk in Toronto and writers of the blog Kitka, were inspired by Morgan of the Brick House (see below) to replace an unappealing deck enclosure with a new slatted cedar enclosure.

Above: The couple replaced a diagonal lattice screen with a slatted wood screen; for a step-by-step account of the process, go to Kitka.
