lattice under pier and beam house


I have a pier and beam house. In the back yard, the space between the house and ground is about 2-3 feet depending on the spot. What is there now is cinder blocks with a lattice panel staked into the ground in front of it.

The problem I am having is that my dogs (two labs) keep getting underneath the house. The pull down the lattice and the cinder blocks.

I want to install the lattice or anything else that is somewhat aesthetically appealing that will absolutely keep the dogs out. Any help that you can give or resources you can point me to will be greatly appreciated.

Great forum and I look forward to being a part of it.

Why not fasten the lattice to a series of 2x4 or 2x6 panels that run between (and are attached to) the piers? That way the panels could be fastened top and bottom and at intermediate locations if necessary.

How would you go about fastening to the brick piers?

You could anchor 2x treated lumber to the brick piers with tapcons. The lattice could be screwed to the treated 2x's.

Colder climate I prefer to close in under the house to keep it warmer

I think it's an outside porch with a concrete foundation wall under the house walls. At least I hope it is...... Be safe, G
