We are renting a home in Nevada and we need a temporary and easy (don’t care if it’s ugly) solution to block the sunlight/heat from the sliding glass door in the photo below. The house was built in 2004. If we owned the house we would install a retractable awning. I was thinking about hanging some outdoor fabric that awenings are made of, but I don’t know what to attach the rope to.

The doors are double pane. We have installed heavy insulating and sun-blocking curtains with a ceiling fan and the room still gets VERY HOT!
