    Great post. I love this. I'm going from a house with an awesome covered patio to a house with no cover. I'm going to miss that, but this is exactly what I was thinking of doing. Great job.

    I love this cover! I want a cover over my deck so badly! We are past the age to tackle DIY construction projects and I am not sure this is where I need to put my money right now!

    how is this attached to the house. I see the post cut into the far outside but up against the house are they also cut down into a long piece of wood up against the house?
