I'd like to build my own deck canopy, and not purchase those retractable awnings that don't seem to last so well out here in Colorado (can be very windy).
I have the 'basic' idea in my head but are there any good resource or plans for building a proper, safe, reliable deck canopy?
Edit: I was thinking two posts to connect to my existing deck posts. Our deck is raised. Then a header piece at the front of the deck, connected to the posts to which I would take a runner board for each side and connect that to the house. I want to use a retractable awning. Does this make some sense?
