Hey Folks,

This post has absolutely nothing to do with woodworking, but it is about the wood shop. Since the removal of our 40 year old street trees, the display windows of the shop have suffered in the sun. To try to alleviate some of that stress, we ordered up a new awning for the front of the building.

Because our building is the oldest thing in the neighborhood, I tried to choose an old fashioned looking fabric and design.

Image

The guys who put it up were very efficient, it went up in about an hour all told.

Image

I think it looks great and adds a lot to the building. As one of the neighbors said,
“It looks like it has always been there”

Image

Cheers,
Tom

The awning looks great! Does the sun ever shine in Seattle. :D Sorry, just had to say that. Was working on a house with my son in Bellevue,a day in May, sun shining, about 75 degrees, flowers all in bloom, thought, it doesn't get any better than this.
What is the car? Is it yours?

Norm -

In order to dispell the belief that the sun never shines in Seattle, Tom had custom shadows painted on the facade of his building. :lol:

Looks real nice Tom. It is a natural fit for your building.
