Off and on, I've been contemplating how to construct a skirt for a pier and
beam house. House has horizontal lap siding from James Hardie. First
bottom lap is against the framing. And, how to do it inexpensively and with
minimum effort. One man job.
I've already constructed an entry door for the underside of the house and
framed in between 2 piers with PT lumber.
My latest idea is to pour a slab for a frame to reside on between each pier.
Frame that in and batt insulate. Picture frame the framing with James
Hardie 1X4s. Apply lap siding as normal inside the picture frame and use
suitable caulk. Paint as instructed by Hardie website. Leave piers exposed
between and use paint on them normally used on interior basement walls.
Am I forgetting something?
