The level of our readers’ projects never fails to surprise us — case in point, this sweet patio cover that reader Ethernectar constructed just in time for the rainy season.  We’re impressed because outdoor projects like this are often deceptive, sounding simple or easily achievable, but even uncomplicated jobs can get out of hand quickly.

The industrious Ethernectar opted for 10’x12′ of clear fiberglass on top with a kicker of 4′ of lattice around the edges — for good measure, he painted the wooden frame white.  It looks great, and we’re sure it’ll keep the patio free of direct rain for some time to come.

    Only problem with kicktail projects like this.

    Wife will make you paint the fence after. And I hate painting fences.
