My hubby got the awnings up at the end of last week! They're on hinges so can be propped open or left down. When all the way down there's still a gap at the bottom, as you can see. I've left that side resting down as it's where the North wind and much of the snow has been blowing from. Still let's in air but it's so much more sheltered.
It was also a huge pain in the butt trying to drill and screw into the metal supports at the top of the coop with big gloves and frozen toes. My husband is just the best. 😘

Way to go! That looks like a perfect solution.

You've got a wonderful hubby to do all that in the freezing weather. We are the opposite here. I was working on some construction around the yard this morning but had to quit because it is almost 90 outside which is hotter than we had all summer in our mild coastal climate!

I would like to feel bad for you....I know that's hot. But I'm just jealous. I miss summer.
