Haha! Thanks! It was something I came up with years ago. Now I use it in a ton of places. I think it fits :)
maybe i should be a wee little bit clearer... I can walk along the pitch of the "roof" and stand on the rafters..not on the screen.. but the "rafters" are 16" on center... the screen is double layer fiberglass porch/window screen ... plenty strong... the main center line is a pair of 2"X6" fir boards bolted together... all the support rafters are 2"X1" through bolted.... it can come appart if need be, but I made a dolley with rubber tires so I can wheel it into posistion...the enclosure weighs about 150lbs...which is more than I weigh...hence..I can walk on it... the deer dont bother the pond.... they eat my roses.. they love the sugar in the rose buds...
