Using PVC pipe and fittings is a great way to create a variety of things. One of the most common uses is building coverings, canopies and awnings for outdoor projects. Some of the advantages of using PVC pipe and fittings are that you don't have to get permits to build with PVC because it's not considered a permanent structure (check your local codes). Not only is PVC easy to find but it's generally inexpensive. Say you want to cover your firewood to keep it dry over the winter months, or you want to store your ATV or farm equipment. Or maybe you need to build a frame to cover your palm tree for winter. In this article we will show you a few ideas to accomplish these tasks with PVC.
