I build a tensegrity version of something like this using grommeted shade cloth. No horizontal parts, just rope and a lot of staking down the corner posts.
You are running out of time ordering grommeted shade cloth. But a carport with opaque silver tarp, including the sunrise side is a gret alternative.

we just cover our kodiak with Aluminet . works great......
