I need to take down this awning for the winter. It's 20ft x 10ft. The 20ft side (the side on the right in the picture, adjacent to the house) is wrapped around a 20ft-long steel beam. The three other sides are held in place by a long cord woven through eyelets.
How do I take down such an awning? I'm guessing that the side with the beam should be detached first and unrolled down gradually while the cords are undone slowly. Is this about right? I'm also guessing that this is a task for two folks capable of carrying a rather hefty load, and it should not be attempted solo. Is that right?
