How to build a roof or awning over a balcony area. We had an outdoor uncovered long balcony total 30 sq yard (25 sq met) so I built up metal frame work & sheet metal roof and lined the underside with spectacular natural cedar panels. You could use pine but it has a cheap look & ordinary finish. Used 3 posts at the front to support long front beam & the slim posts onto brick wall at the back & a steep roof pitch (angle). One man/woman can put this up cost about $A6,500 ($US4,800) professional quote was $A35,000 ($US26,000) took around 4 weeks for my 1st ever awning but it would take far less time if had to build another .
