This project came out of a real necessity... That is the necessity to be able to open a tilting window to get some cross ventilation in, without letting in hoards of voracious mosquitos. Because this window tilts, rather than sliding up and down, a regular window screen wouldn't work.
The solution - the all mighty duct tape, a few thumb tacks, a bit of screen and a bit of ingenuity.
Here's how I did it:
• Measuring tape
• Straight edge (or metal ruler)
• Duct tape
• Thumb tacks
Step 1: Diagram
The first step in this process was figuring out how to add a screen to a window that tilts. My solution was to make two screens - one for the top half and one for the bottom half, and attach one piece on the inside and one on the outside.
Above is a diagram my father-in-law made to better visualize this process. (Obrigado Moacyr!;-)
