    Would a simple overhang do it? Hard to tell from the pics with these old eyes but it seems like if you were to put an extension off the roof above the openings you could block a lot of it.

    I was hoping you'd say that, but I just stuck to just answering your original question! [​IMG]

    I had the same problem. I added more of an overhang and "lip" around the roof. I also made simple shutters for the large front window that I can close when it rains.

    When I was in a pinch, i stapled garbage bags to one window, lol.
