Latest addition: a front porch

16.12.14: I have added a frameless polycarbonate front porch to my house. This is recycling some 6mm polycarbonate from an unfinished solar panel building project. Because it is curved in a vault shape, it can be completely frameless and will withstand gravity force and upward wind loads.



Subsequently, after a few gales,  it became obvious that some bracings were required, and some metal bracings have been added, but the appearance of the porch remains extremely lightweight.
