am looking to making a smoking shelter, following a rearrangement of our
patio (previous solution was a parasol anchored to a table which could
wedge under the eaves - it "did", but was not ideal).
Have hit upon the idea of using a BBQ shelter http://
gclid=CKe48vO72KkCFUFC4QodKQSwNw with a couple of additions. Mainly I
want something that will cover the sides (the back will go against a
wall) for when the wind blows with the rain.
Current thinking is some clear plastic, like they use in caravan awnings.
Cut a piece to size, and then glue some velcro and it can be stuck in
place, but easily rolled up/removed when I want to BBQ (dual purpose).
Does anyone know of a source for this plastic? My guess is it's some form
of vinyl/PVC. Presumably it's special to prevent too much UV damage.
One day I will do some statistical analysis to prove that it rains more
between 9 and midnight (when I enjoy my 3 daily cigarettes) than any
other time ... last night was the 3rd evening I had to sit out front,
under the storm porch in 7 days.
as always, thanks in advance.
