Passive Solar Trellis for cooling

Posted by layyze (My Page) on

I am interested in building a trellis over three south facing windows in order to reduce heating in the house. The trellis will support small vines that have leaves during the summer including jasmine and a light grape vine.

I am looking for ideas on materials and design. The tops of the windows are ten feet from ground level. The house does have vinyl siding so I know that attaching a trellis can be tricky.
