I live where it's hot and I mean HOT!! Over 100 degrees is almost everyday here in the summer and we have very long summers. Our sliding glass patio door is on the south side of the house and causes lots of radiant heat. We have vertical blinds in front of it but that only helps a little. My sweet husband made me a canopy for it. There is a distinct temperature difference in my kitchen and dining area now, thanks honey!
|Chain link top connector. |
Drilled holes straight through the sides
of 2 of them.
|1-3/8" x 10.5' pipe. Drilled holes in |
both ends of 2 of these to match the
holes in the connectors.
|Canopy rolled out in my living room |
and square dowels.
|I stapled the dowels to the short|
ends. The edges were unfinished
and we didn't want them to fray.
|We dug 2 deep holes 1 1/2 ft deep by |
1 ft wide. Filled it with
quickcrete, stuck the connectors
in drilled holes side up. When it dried
we put the pole in & ran a bolt
through & secured it with a nut.
|My husband putting the snap |
grommets on. We put in several
along the short ends.
They are not hard to install , the
package comes with instructions.
|Put in 2 eye hooks into the eave|
where there was a stud. At the
top of the poles we put eye bolts.
We tied the canopy to the eye hooks
