Nice job!
Looks great and appears to be well thought out.
Our yard using non-stretch strapping instead of rope for the ridge when doing shrink wrap - don't know if you get any "sag" but that would eliminate it!?

You might post a link on the DIY Canvas Tips & Tricks thread as there are some good ideas here. (or let me know and I'd be happy to do a link)
