    Question any ideas to weatherproof small verandah??

    have small verandah 1200 x 3700 and want to start by filling in the 1200 end as anything i have out there gets wet thru the shadecloth when it rains. Any suggestions for inexpensive solution? 1200 end is 3800 high. Ultimately i'd like it fully enclosed with sliding doors across the front but it may be too expensive so the most exposed end is where i'll start.

    Put up a couple of sheets of laserlite. Cheap and simple to do.

    Default any ideas to weatherproof small verandah??

    I've cut it with a jigsaw using a fine toothed blade on high speed. You can use tin snips or even a grinder with a metal wheel.
    Just bang up a simple timber frame and screw the sheet onto it.
    Here's one I prepared earlier
