Make Your Own Awnings
Instead of an old fashioned, pulley-operated awning, install a single piece of canvas attached to a wood pole at the top and at the bottom. Secure the top above your window with hooks. Attach the lower pole to prop poles on that wall to hold the awning out at an angle. Or you can create a natural awning by constructing a trellis above your window and growing a flowering vine or ivy on it.

I would like to make an inexpensive awning across part of our elevated deck. Our house has steel siding so I don't have wood posts to screw into. Any suggestions? Joan
