Polycarbonate roof for outdoor kitchen to BBQ in style

I constructed the BBQ and brick structure some years back which included a mixture of pavers and pebble creted fish pond and fountain. The fish pond is shallow so its safe for my grand kids to wet their toes in the summer months but has a prefab 500 litre concrete tank underground to house the main pump. The filtration system is above ground for easy access .The BBQ Structure houses the Water Storage tank pump and also an auto reel hose bought from Bunning some time back. A door provides access but ensures little hands are safe.The BBQ itself is a 5 Burner Matador also purchased from bunnings. The right side houses the Gas cylinder. Unfortunately it was always sunny during the week but nearly always rained on weekends. So finally it was time to gather the timber and contruct a shelter using timber trusses and clear polycarbonate also purchased from Bunnings which would allow plants to get enough sun but also offer protection from rain and hail. I also incorporated some temporary timber lattice just for when temperatures reach the forty's.in Summer.The roofing structure also has a skylight over the water feature which is mainly designed for aestheticreasons only since lighting is not an issue. A ducted exhaust hood to direct smoke outside the enclosure. An automated misting system to water plants since they are now under cover.
