I've wanted a pergola for a long time. I liked some parts of the Weatherly Pergola, but needed some different aspects because of my deck, property and locale. I did some research, laid out a modified design and plan - and voila! Easy as pie - you just need 2 people (or more) because of the weight of the cross beams support. I did it myself using clamps, but I don't recommend it.
My current project is designing cabinets and a bar for an outdoor kitchen to go under the pergola! :D
I love your pergola and I especially love that it is the same color as the house. I'm not a fan of big red/orange/brown things hanging off of pretty houses. I bet it is lovely at night with the lights twinkling!
So impressed that you built this by yourself! You are just amazing!
I'm trying to convince my husband that we should build this over our cement patio outside. It looks fantastic!
It's finally here! Get all the details on my first book!
