Dock Shelter – Work Area
Category: Outdoors, tent, shelter, windbreak, camping. outdoor room
Problem: I like being on my dock. I have my wifi set up so that I can be down there and be on the computer. However, in the fall and winter it gets chilly there, and when the wind blows, it is even less pleasant.
Action: I had found this sun shelter that people take to the beach. I secured it around the outside of an Adirondack chair, and then put plastic in the front and a sheet in the back to close it off. That way I could see out and be protected from the wind. Just to make it more cozy, I was able to put my electric heater under the chair.
Result: I achieved my objectives of being on the dock, enjoying the view and solitude, and being toasty warm.
Additional Thoughts: Recently I have seen small shelters that would accomplish the same thing except they do not have the clear side. However they would be better to modify because there would be a little more room than in the one I put together.
