Keifer is right. View or no view that is going to be the place to hang out rain or shine. My modest little backyard patio has an awning, nothing comparable to your setup in terms of how nice the space or the view, but it’s my little paradise where I spend more time than even the shop. Having a place to get out of the sun and the rain is priceless. You may even surprise yourself at how much time you spend there.
