Luxury camping or “Glamping” is the newest phenomenon which allows guests to experience nature and the outdoors without foregoing the comforts of home. Tucked in beautiful locations throughout the world, accommodations include yurts, igloos, geodesic domes, tent structures and tree houses.
Early this month Santa Fe Awning Co. re-covered a section of a large Fabric Building. Originally constructed more than 7 years ago, we replaced a third of the 100ft. building with new 10 year warranty fabric covering a large area of the top section and one end.
More than 6,000 square feet of sturdy fabric was measured, cut and fabricated in our workshop, and transported to the site. Requiring a boom lift and a scissor lift, it took four men to maneuver and secure the new section. It was a beautiful, sunny day as so many are in New Mexico, but spring winds are a factor, and we were lucky enough to catch the timing and take advantage of a change of direction. While many jobs of this size take 2 or 3 days just for the installation, our crew was able to complete the job in a single day. Fabricating the section in our workshop took much longer.
