I live in a valley high in the Welsh hills. It rains here a lot. I had a huge garage when I moved in and since then I chopped it down by half and made the other half a carport. The rain, and I might have mentioned that it rains a lot, is blown by the wind basically horizontally up the valley soaking my carport.

So I came up with this…it’s some cheap tarps off Ebay, some one by twos and some rope… it expands my workspace by over 100%. And I can roll it up to get the full benefit of the view when not in use.

the neighbours haven’t complained. They did have to look at this before…

good thinking. That will sure prevent the rain.

My dad has “pvc” curtains with a rail outside on the veranda for the same purpose: Rain and sun.

The screens have been up for a week now…NOT ONE DROP OF RAIN!

If you live in a rainy part of the world I highly recommend this as a way to ensure sunshine.
