So, as you can see it needed some help. My guards also wanted me to make the roof higher. That required a carpenter and a bit of extra thinking. The posts for the banda were only so high. They were also still good and were imbedded in the concrete. So, here are a few pictures for you to enjoy the process of repairing and improving it.

|We added plastic to help keep out any rain that might fall :)|
