.esterday, just before the rain, I put the awning out.The hope was that we could leave the door open, without rain coming in. It worked~mostly.Today I was looking at the awning and thinking. “It just doesn’t look right.” Finally I realized why the awning looked wrong. I hadn’t installed the rafters / braces. These rafters keep the awning fabric wretched and tight.
