Build Your Own Patio Sunshade And Save
Build Your Own Patio Sunshade And Save
Tired of sitting on your deck or patio and having that hot sun beating down on you all day? Wish you could have a cool shady area in which to sit or hold your parties? Getting to the age where warnings about the sun causing skin cancer are starting to worry you? Patio sunshades are becoming more popular as our population ages and people realize that a "nice healthy tan" now means increased risk of skin cancers. For many people, lying in the hot sun all day is no longer as much fun as it was when they were younger.
"Build Your Own Patio Sunshade" was designed for both the homeowner with beginning to intermediate building experience and the contractor in mind. It is for anyone interested in ideas on building a simple, functional and inexpensive patio sunroof, or pergola as it is sometimes called. This 103 minute video walks the viewer through the entire pergola process, from lessons on selecting the proper wood, hardware and foundation to actually constructing a 15 by 15 foot pergola. David Welch, who has built and designed numerous homes, garages, decks and screenporches, works with homeowner, Bill Holland in constructing a pergola behind Bill's beautiful Crown Point, Indiana home. One reason Dave chose Bill for this 103 minute DVD, is that Bill has had little construction experience. That should give the viewer with similar experience confidence that they can take on a project of this nature and successfully complete it.
After several lessons on wood and hardware selection, needed tools, posthole diggers, choosing a foundation and roof options, Bill and Dave actually build the pergola from start to beautiful finish. The construction lessons feature multi camera angles and closeups, voiceover narrations, titles, and background music. Nothing is left to chance in filming all steps of construction. If that's not enough, Bill takes you on a tour of a neighbor's huge deluxe pergola, to give you even more construction ideas and details.
If you glance at the pergola pictures on the front cover, you can better understand the beauty of this finished sunshade. Dave designed it with flexibility for the viewer in mind. This pergola's simple design can be easily resized to whatever dimensions the viewer requires.
So watch "Build Your Own Patio Sunshade", order your materials, build your beautiful pergola and impress the heck out of your wife, friends and neighbors. Spend a few days building your pergola, get some good healthy exercise and sit back and sip a nice cool drink. You'll have it "made in the shade".

Virginia Creeper on Arbour At North Side of House
Virginia Creeper on Arbour At North Side of House
Virginia creeper or five-leaved ivy (Parthenocissus quinquefolia) is a woody vine native to eastern and central North America, in southeastern Canada, the eastern and central United States, eastern Mexico, and Guatemala, west as far as Manitoba, South Dakota, Utah and Texas. It is a prolific climber, reaching heights of 20 to 30 m in the wild. It climbs smooth surfaces using small forked tendrils tipped with small strongly adhesive pads 5 mm in size. The leaves are palmately compound, composed of five leaflets (rarely three leaflets, particularly on younger vines) joined from a central point on the leafstalk, and range from 3 to 20 cm (rarely 30 cm) across. The leaflets have a toothed margin, which makes it easy to distinguish from poison-ivy, which has three leaflets with smooth edges. The flowers are small and greenish, produced in clusters in late spring, and mature in late summer or early fall into small hard purplish-black berries 5 to 7 mm diameter. These berries contain oxalic acid, which is poisonous to humans and other mammals, and may be fatal if eaten. However, accidental poisoning is uncommon, likely because of the bad taste of the berries. Despite being poisonous to mammals, they provide an important winter food source for birds. Oxalate crystals are also contained in the sap, and can cause irritation and skin rash [1]
A sixteen foot square arbor was built to shade employees and visitors in the Mt Shasta Native Plant Garden. Native grapes are planted on the south side and will provide more shade in the years to come.
