Temporary Pergola

Our new house didn't have any shade in the backyard, which was especially hot during the sunny months of the summer. We decided to build a pergola. A pergola is one of those pavillion type things that doesn't have an exactly solid roof. You can build it fairly simply and put vines and stuff on it.

So, we were going to build it during the summer. I say "we" really meaning "I". Due to the hot weather and the abundance of other projects that needed doing, we decided to opt for a temporary solution then build a wood pergola in the fall when the weather cooled off. So, this is a picture of the temporary solution. I'm not sure where we're going to get the money to build the pergola, but at least i can probably count on Caul's help.
