Nice orchid house, Howard. That must have took some careful planning. Did you get a kit or measure and cut all the pipe yourself? Will you add shade cloth to the top also?
The 60 % shade will be fine as the summer light will also come in the sides of your shade house. Your cattleyas will love you for their new summer home.

Very cool. I use a small wooden contraption on my rooftop where I put some of my orchids from late Spring trough Fall. Your structure looks the perfect size.
Would just need to weigh it down so it doesn't fly away but it looks more spacious than what I have now.
That came out really well, Howard! We're zone 5 or 6 depending on the particular microclimate which varies considerably in our area.
