I am trying to figure a good way to build a retractable awning for over the deck on my house? Answered

y deck is 12 foot by 12 foot and the sun really heats up the house thruogh the sliding glass door.



Try this link for one idea. It's really more of a cloth "roof. Since you don't say how high your house eave is on this deck, it appears you want a shade structure or canopy rather than an awning. http://www.shade-cloth-diy.com/awning-designs/awning-designs.shtml
