Enclosing under a deck with a lattice

Recommended Posts



I am a casual user.


I can't find how to enclose the lower section of an outside deck.  How would I enclose the area under the deck with a lattice or other type of material.


Thanks in advance

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.


You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.


Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.


And, turn on signature display too.

Hi Eric.

Will get the signature built.  I am running Home Designer Pro 2021 Build  June 2020.  I see the lattice panel and 3 lattice materials.  

Not exactly what I wanted but it works.

I will go the deck framing plan, transform/replicate the rim joists the thickness they are. Then edit them to keep the height the same, change the thickness to 3/4" or 1/2", then close the gap between the new joists and the framing. Then you can transform/replicate on the "Z" axis, adjust the thickness again if you wish. Then make that item a lattice. From a side elevation, you can adjust that piece to the height you need. Depending on what catalogs you have, there is a diagonal lattice that works pretty good. Just adjust the material and texture properties down to a size opening you want. Then you can even paint the material white or whatever color you want it to be.

What did you want?



Done in Architectural because I had it open.


1/2" thick soffit with a lattice material rotated 45 degrees.
