I got lucky when we moved to CA and found an upstairs condo with no roof over the deck. I DID have to deal with the logistics of building a shade structure that would support hanging plants and be lightweight enough for one person to remove if need be. We got it right the second season! As far as heat goes, I get made fun of a bit. Being from Alabama, I get strange looks and comments when I complain about the "heat" here. I'd give ANYTHING to have air conditioning. No one does here in northern CA unless they live far inland. It's horrid!
