I'm looking for clever suggestions/pointers/plans/images
to help me construct covered parking on my small
driveway for two cars. The driveway is a small semi-circle
(center half-circle island is about 20 feet across (10-12' radius), and
the outer edge is about 48 feet across (24" radius), with a 12' wide
It's uncovered, and we've always done reasonably well shade-wise
(this is Arizona, where shading cars in summer sun is important)
with two trees that hang over the driveway. But we've had a huge
increase in pigeon populations, they land in the trees, and cover
the cars with droppings.
I know I can try to chase off the pigeons, but the task at hand is a design for
covering at least the two ends of the driveway (where we park, with a
car length and a half in the middle which is usually empty). I can do it
with a rectangular roof on posts, but I was wondering if anyone has seen
(or has) a curved-roof cover.
Suggestions of any sort welcome!
