TJ's Boat Tops

Fall is here and it's time to think about cooler evenings and wetter days. Last year we made a simple porch enclosure from greenhouse plastic so we could continue to enjoy our picnic table. With a propane heater, we ate outdoors most evenings. The problem was that we really couldn't see through the plastic all that well.

We decided to have a professional model made for this coming season. We went to TJ's Boat Tops in Powell River and had Todd Stanhope use our design to make us an enclosure out of outdoor rated cloth and high grade plastic. Here's the results.

We chose green to match our cabin trim. The two panels are easy to put up and take down if the wind starts to blow too strong.

Now when we sit at the table, we have a great view of the lake and Goat Island.

Todd does excellent work. If you need a boat top, something upholstered, or even a porch enclosure, give him a call to get your free estimate. -- Margy

  1. What a clever idea.

  2. Yes, clever! I adore eating outdoors!

  3. Great idea and I am sure it will last for many years if well taken care of.

  4. Thanks for the comments. The September weather has been so mild we haven't needed it or the propane heater yet, but I'm afraid soon we'll have to start bundling up and will really appreciate all of Todd's good work. - Margy
