The bottom of the awning is mounted on the wall three inches above the door, and the edge is attached to the house is usually 1-2 meters higher than the outside edge. The awning slopes down from the wall to the edge of the porch. Cut the two tubes are cut to the width of the porch in thirds. The height tube is cut to the height desired porch awnings on the wall.

Remove the four tubes the length you just measured, and apply cement to the outer edge of the ends of the pipes. Slide two pipes in the open T-connector.
