OK, new user malfunction. LOL I seem to only be able to attach one pic to the post. This might get lengthy.

John, the shortcoming of this Board is limited picture posting capability.

You know them future smokers are pretty big, but what the hell, they still make torches to cut em down.

Big depends on who is paying for the meat & groceries.

Meanwhile sneak over to the fabric plant under the excuse of shelter in case of rain at the picnic and learn up on how to fasten that stuff.

Then we can learn all about misters and score free nozzles. After all the guy working the grill needs to be protected from heat prostration to avoid a comp claim.

Franz,
You got that right, if you can fill it with meat, I can build it.

As far as sneaking over to fabric, screw that I walk in and out as I please. :D There is really nothing "top secret" but there are numerous fastening and tension techniques that we utilize.

One thing I did neglect to mention is there is a lot of High strenght steel braid cable and turnbuckles utilized in some of these shade structures.

In short, there are many ways to make it stick, I just need to know what it has to stick to.

How do you guys typically deal with rain shed? Are there provisions within the canopy to divert it?

JT,
Yes rainfall is among the many natural elements that must be accounted for and this varies by region. This company has structures in just about every state in the US and several over seas.

Now on that note, my involvement is minimal at best when it comes to that. The most I might have to say is the best placement of a drain hole in a given section. I am but a mere cog in this big wheel.

Hey, maybe they could build a tent for Jack to build his mud brick factory under and shed the water onto the Hebrew neighbor's property. Then Jack could make bricks that don't disolve in the rain.

Well, Detroit ain't exactly a desert and the round sections where the masts protrude look like a funnel which seems like it would cause problems for those beneath.

I also realize that architects don't always give two turds about function, and this might be an example of such.

JT,
You are not the first to use the word funnel when describing this structure. As for the design and the intent behind it.... well thats between the customer, D&E and project management. LOL

I just inspected the steel. :rolleyes:

I'm just thinking they'd have benches around the columns if it were put up here, so anyone sitting on those benches would be unhappy if the sprinkling were to commence.

I happen to like the stuff you're posting. Looks much nicer than the little aluminum and glass huts they park on the corners here.
