The owner of this remodel that a great group of craftsmen & I built hired me to build an awning to shade the sun porch. Tired of looking at cheap pull down fabric shades we came up with this build. Since I built the deck & railing from IPE, Lets go over the top(Ha Ha) with a movable, in sections shade system using a 1×1 connecting rail that connects to 8 slats at a time & can be articulated to & fro. Makes for an adjustable system in grids. All from IPE with stainless pins & bolts for about the same cost as a fabric awning!
