Paul, I would get tech advice as to what
woods to use and adhesives and or bolts. I
wouldn't want a failure.

I have been known to take chances but when
an architect friend told me that the plastic
tarp I strung up between the house and yard
wall to keep the sun off my hounds during a
hot summer because I couldn't let them in the
house and it wouldn't hold up with a 20" wet
snow load he said they have to design for and
being out of work because of a disability I
scrounged up broken, 2x6 boards from police
barricades that were the length I needed and
bought sheets of wafer board and made a roof
for the yard. I lapped the wafer board but
then put roll roofing on it when it got a
leak. The hounds only are out when I go out
now and they can be out in any weather and
I don't have to shovel yellow snow. Problem
is that stray cats come in and have litters
in the yard since half of it is full of
building materials and refrigerators that I
either use or had planed to build a
functioning repo of a wood ice box.

I thought the tarp would have held with our
usual and sometimes rare 3-4" snows since I
had a lot of nylon rope under it but my
friend was right since a few yrs later we had
a 31" snow.
