When we moved in (3years ago) I had a plan to put in a shade sail.
Isn't it pretty. It looks so simple. I had the whole plan in my head. I set 4x4 posts that I found in the trash.
Notice the big white box that was made for a dog house? Pepper was also not an outside person. The only time she got in it was when I got in there with her.
I bought a drop cloth.
Then I developed psoriatic arthritis and could not move.
Now that I have that under control and AEB will be here in 3 days, I need some shade. The drop cloth got used in other places. So last weekend Brad and I went and bought all the supplies.
3 packages of cable clamps:
another drop cloth
2 turn buckles:
I turned under each corner of the dropcloth to make a channel for the cable.
I put 2 screweyes in the eaves of the house and attached the wire and canvas.
And now we have shade for AEB and also to cool our living room window.
It will work and that's what counts.
