This is the west side of our house,it has been so hot this year that we could not enjoy sitting out here.
My new Shade cloth.Just a few hooks and a line to keep them up and in place. It should keep 87% of the sun out ,we did not measure it but it was a lot cooler down here yesterday after we closed it.
Finally my husband got my chandelier up. It has been in a box for the last 13 years I bought it in Germany.
It is almost done still need to decide on a new patio swing.
