Due to some design issues that appeared insurmountable I was ready to give up on the awning. The only reason it is going to become a reality is that so many other people wanted to see it happen. John put serious time into working and re-working the design. But we still had a mechanical hang-up neither of us could figure out. Konrad came up with a cheap and elegant solution (see sketch on the right above). It’s genius and we’re off!
