This is an example of a mid-sized midcentury backyard deck in San Francisco with an awning.

Shangrila - Marin County, CAMidcentury Deck, San Francisco

This space is perfect for entertaining! When the owners originally moved in, this deck was not here. There were several steps down from the kitchen door, and the stone slabs were a toe-stubbing minefield. We added the deck and designed it perfectly for entertaining. Since we had several large pine trees removed from the property, we increased sun exposure creating a need for more shade. We had this awning custom made by PJ Canvas in Santa Rosa, CA. The awning tucks neatly under the roof of the house during the rainy months.

    Anyone know if there is someone doing shades like this in oz?

    This is a very ancient concept in retractable shade systems. I would guess any quality canvas shop could make it for you, we have an auto trimmer that has diversified and also makes awnings for caravans and shade sails for homes. This would be an easy knock up for such a person.
