Can you tell me where to get the awnings?
Thank you!

Thanks for your question. The awnings are manufactured by Warema in Germany. I got them through a rep on Vancouver Island in Canada. They were able to save me a lot on freight by including them on a container with an order of German windows but I had to pick them up in Canada myself (which was combined with a nice late summer camping trip). Unfortunately, I can't remember the reps name but it may be out of date anyway. I've put a link to the Warema awning page below. You can find a lot of awnings domestically but it's hard to find ones that are simple and clean in appearance.

Hope that helps.

Lovely!! How have the awnings held up in the weather? Has it interfered with the clerestory window views?

Sue - They've held up really well. They don't effect the views or light as they are out during our 3-4 months of sunny summer and then retracted for the remaining 8-9 months of overcast weather. Before they are put away at the end of summer they get scrubed down with a push broom, hose and soap and left to dry - pretty easy.

One needs to be careful that they are not left out in very windy weather (say over 20 MPH). We don't have those kinds of winds in the summer and the house and surrounding trees protect them pretty well in any case. One can install them on a motor with both a solar and wind guage so they automatically extend and retract in response to conditions. That's a much more elaborate installation than I have.
