Nicer than a shade sail over the pool? This is a good summer shade idea. Clip on in the summer, clip off in winter or bad weather. Could run between two permanent shade structures, or between two parts of the house.
I love this under stair indoor "dog house." Its out of the way and it even has a window. What more could a dog want? I do want this somewhere,so that while we are gone,they can look out of "their window" and watch for our return.
