Sketch of Roof brim and Railing
Here is a sketch of one possible way to implement the leading edge “brim” of the
roof that can be deployed or retracted depending on the amount of shade
and the angle of the sun:
There is also a sketch of some build-in seats that could be put on the inside edges of
some of the columns on the deck. The railing can have small concrete posts that
match the columns in shape, though perhaps flipped or made symmetrical. I see these
railings as being low, about 2-3 feet.
