So, the last week or so I have been slowly, really, really slowly, working on a sun shelter by the pool so guests who don’t want to sit in the hot sun can join us for pool-time fun in comfort. I keep fighting the urge to over-build, but the point is that it’s cheap and shelter, not a permanent structure that has to stand forever. It will do fine for the next 5 or ten years. Here are a few pictures as I finished for tonight to start regular chores.
You see that black pole in the background? It’s the fire siren Maybe the shelter will help with that too!
All I’m putting on this is a cloth that keeps most of the sun out and allows air through, so all I needed was 2×4’s. Still tempted to add the bracing in between each.
Now I’m sore and have to go milk with my blistered hands and black thumbs 🙂
