Wood
Pros: Cheap
         Easy to change shape or size as your needs for space change
         DIY - most people would be able to build it from scratch or make modifications (e.g. add windows)
         Can be converted to chazzon ish (replace metal screws with peg screws)
         Can integrate a schlock to the structure
Cons: Heavy, Can warp over time. (note: if you use enough fasteners and are also careful to assemble it balanced this can be minimized)
         Needs lots of storage space

Fiberglass
Pros: Easy Setup (on level ground)
         Length/width is reconfigurable (you just need to buy a few 2x4 beams if you change layout)
Cons: Expensive
         Greenhouse effect on hot days (need to budget for several open/shut windows)
         Connection threads can become bent even with proper storage (need to budget for the odd panel replacement here and there)
         Can Crack or Break

Canvas
Pros: Setup in minutes
Cons: Not accepted by all poskim
         Poor protection from cold Weather
         Wind Can be bothersome.

Id prefer something I can leave on the outside house wall all year long, don't really want a l bracket sticking out (it's a brick wall).  But if I can't find anything else, I'd do that
So buy an L bracket that’s the same size as the one you put a picture of.

Or another option is to trim out that area of your panels to fit the bracket, you’ll probably need a “Oscillating tool” to do that efficiently.
I’m in shape, round is a shape…

Can also use hard corrugated plastic to make a round shape and tape it on the end.

This is already getting a bit more custom, but if the issue is that something is sticking out, then you can figure out some flush mounting plate that stays on the house year round, then the piece that sticks out mounts onto it.

you can go a little more custom and turn your dining room ceiling into a retractable skylight and becomes a sukkah :D

Last chance to order in bulk Sukkah direct from China

https://m.alibaba.com/product/60737847976/Durable-Jewish-sukkah-NYC-different-sizes.html

They are about $100 each and they sell for in NY for about $1,000

I ordered mine this past year and it was great quality (though I paid a bit over $200 since I only ordered 1 and it included shipping to my house)

How long did it take to get to you? Did you order schach from them also?  How is the quality?

You might want a bit extra for tying/fastening.

I don't have a shlock. I'm worried about mold growing behind them if I keep them up. And to remove them means tons of holes in my decorations.

Is it generally safe for zip ties to go around the light fixture to hold it up.
