The awning in action

By ayr October 5, 2008

This is it folks, our awning is coming together. I got back to Western Mass around 1pm today to work on this. We went to Home Depot first to pick up a garage door (only way to get the rails fast). But Home Depot Greenfield doesn’t sell garage doors. Down to Springfield. First to a Sears that told me on the phone they have them. They only have the openers, not the doors.

So we ended up going out to a Lowes. At Home Depot the doors were $500. Too much. But Lowes had an open box damaged door (we don’t care at all) that I convinced them to sell me for $100. Fantastic!

By the time we got back it was nearly 6pm. My dad stayed up with me and by midnight we had what you see here. It’s actually much more impressive in person that what you see here. Really mesmerizing.

More photos after the break.
