So, just a small teaser, and I promise to get pictures tomorrow, I have figured out the small details of the awning style for the LightHeart Solo, and I just have to say I'm pretty pleased with myself. the design is in keeping with my philosophy of keeping it very simple and basic, I don't want fancy riggings, or any complicated structure. I don't want to have to worry about kicking poles out and having the tent fall down on me. This is the same basic tent, one extra door in the mesh (this is actually the most difficult part for me as it has to be mirror imaged, and that complicated the sewing a little). one extra pole for the awning.(which you can't accidentally kick out of place. You can easily cook under the awning,get a good view and the awning can very easily be closed up in a driving rain. - you might even be able to rig this somehow from inside the tent.
The cost for this style will be the same as any custom solo or cuben solo plus the $15.00 for the extra door zipper. you don't really need the extra door, but then again, you do. if you close the awning for what ever reason, you would have to get out on the other side.
As soon as I can set the tent up outside tomorrow I will get pictures.
