The most necessary structure on the site, in addition to the house, is a canopy from the sun. Resting in the shade is much more pleasant than under the scorching rays or drizzling rain. Under a Shade ‘N Net, you can drive a car, store building materials, and do some household chores. It is not at all necessary to build a capital structure with roofing on powerful supports for this. The canopy can be light, made of special fabric, and even mobile.
The easiest and fastest way to build sun protection is to fix an awning on the wall of the house – a special design made of fabric on brackets. But you can get by with much less spending with more freedom to choose a shaded area. The main material in all cases will be a large canvas. For temporary disposable structures, you can use any bedspread or tablecloth. If you need permanent shelter, it is better to buy a canopy from rain and sun from special fabrics. Visit website of a special store to see a plenty of great examples.
On vertical supports
It is good if there are ready-made supports in the right place to which the canvas can be tied. It can be trees, walls of a house or other building, a fence between which fabric is stretched. The missing supports can be made by yourself from long bars, metal or plastic pipes, bamboo sticks.
Fabric mobile canopy
Instead of concrete, you can fill the tank with earth and plant flowers.
It is desirable to connect the supports along the top with horizontal jumpers to make the frame more rigid and stable. They can be fastened with bolts, ties or bandaging with a tourniquet.
Rings, loops or rope garters will have to be sewn onto the canvas to attach it to the supports.
