These awnings are designed specifically to reduce the direct summer sun but allow winter sun (and solar gain) to enter the house. The sun shades stick out about 3 feet from the facade and are about 6 inches above the windows. The 2 x 6 horizontal "lattice" are spaced 7 1/2 inches apart and are let into the supports. Remember, this project is in Maine and the sun angles will change depending on where you live so the sun shades might need to change dimensionally to work correctly. There are other photos of this house if you want to look at detailed views of the sunshades.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The various windows — square, rectangular, L-shaped — glow at night, bringing warmth to the house surrounded by snow.

An interesting two story comparison to the previous image. Again, simple awning overhang may be appropriate in some areas. Also, note pergola-like shade awnings for southern exposure.
