Indio, California: Last year we
added a sliding glass door panel to the north (windy) side of our pavilion. This
year we added awnings to the two west-side openings. It's always something.
The awnings will add shade to our pavilion, especially since
each awning has a drop-down shade at the end. The awnings/shades are on a remote
control and are operated separately - so awnings can go in/out and the drop-down
shades can go up/down individually (or all at once - it's magic).
It's a wholenuther world. We have shade and we have
fresh air flowing throughout our outdoor living space. The awnings come equipped
with wind/vibration sensors so they will automatically retract in case of high
like that could ever happen.
It was a bit of a complicated ordeal since the awnings had
to be installed over existing drop-down screen walls, but at the Motorcoach
Country Club anything can happen as long the Architectural Committee agrees
with your design.
We now have a ton of shade in our pavilion, but how is this
going to help in my tomato-growing scenario? (NOTE TO PEOPLE IN COLD TEMPS:
I have about 50 blossoms on my three tomato plants.)
The crew took nearly three days to install the awnings and
drop-down shades. It was a complicated installation, but in the end we are
very happy with our new shady campsite.
We can see out...
No one can see in... and it gives us a more open outdoor
Until my next update, I remain, your shady correspondent.
