Shade Sails: Instant Affordable Shade
Shade Sails are a very affordable way to give some shade around your tiny home that looks great and is fast and easy to install. My cabin is a rental in Marlin Wa. and I have a lovely renter that has two adorable pugs. The building is actually an open RV parking area that we have converted to a dog kennel. We have added a doggie door that goes out to the area that is in full direct almost all day sun, so I wanted to add a little shady sitting area.
I purchased the shade sail on Amazon and it is manufactured by San Diego Shade Sails. If you have ever priced material that blocks out UV rays the sun, you know it is expensive. It is more affordable if you buy it all ready sized.
The shade sail is 10 X 10 and was $59.95. San Diego Shade Sails also makes triangle shapes which I love. I highly recommend this product. The color is called Sandy Beach. There are many other colors available.

Shade Sails are the most cost effective shade solution per square foot! Shade Sails protect and shade your outdoor areas. Also known as Sun Sails, shade sails make beautiful additions to your patio, backyard, or other outdoor areas, while providing excellent protection from the sun and its harmful UV radiation. A chic shade sail is the perfect alternative to a traditional pergola or covered porch. Floating and curvaceous, Shade Sails make an attractive addition to any property, and with the right design, they can enhance the existing property with artistic or architectural flair and style.
Sail Shades are wonderfully versatile; they can be attached to homes, fences, trees, or patio columns. In addition, they can be supported by wood posts or steel columns embedded in concrete footings. They can easily be taken down seasonally if necessary. Shade Sails are the ultimate in stylish sun protection.

The heavy duty Polyethylene material will keep you cool and out of the hot sun.

Heavy duty design will not droop or sag. Won’t grow mold or mildew and completely durable through all seasons. This Sun Shade has a specialized lock-stitch knit that creates raised channels that catch and pull air underneath, while providing the ultimate in strength and durability.
Beautiful For Three Seasons
The material is so thick and impressive and the quality is extraordinary. I will be able to leave it up for three seasons. Two ends are attached to the building and the other ends have high quality galvanized posts that are threaded with nipples and couplers. We did it this way, so we could remove the posts in winter. I thought it would look odd to have posts sticking up there. I will place pots or something over the cemented nipples, so know one trips.
