Old Sail Awning

The new Blade Sail sun awning we installed in Katherine’s garden. A lovely cheap addition to her wonderland. Julien chose a blade sail because its flat cut and would not pucker. The sail is attached at the head to a stake in the ground. The sail’s bronze hanks runs on a stainless steal wire from the stake in the ground to a block that he screwed into a wood post on the house. Next another block is attached to another part of the wood wall (lenght of the foot of the sail ). The sail slides back and forth on the wire and can be tight for shade or rain and pushed back to the house ( puckered) for light and air.
