  • Timberframed Pergola

    Installed this down in the Guelph area this week. Lovely back yard, and this seems to suit it well!

        Great looking pergola. Are you putting 2x10 or something like that on top and does it need something to hold it down?

          Client wanted to look after that, but I believe there will be 2x10s going across with decorative ends and he's going to tie anchors in with some additional work he's doing. I'm excited to see the rest of it!

            Brent, how was it attached to the ground? Is it floating?

                Nice work Brent. Your framing is going to make the back yard a destination, rather than just the place where the family dog has his own brick doghouse with a slate roof and his own wood burning fireplace. Man, what a dump.

                  It's just sitting there right now, but as I understand it there will be anchors built into some additional work that's taking place there this fall.

                    Ha ha! I bet some folks here recognize the place......it's a forum member's back yard, but I'll await for them to identify themselves if they wish.

                      Looks great Brent! Do you happen to recall the dimensions?

                        Post locations are 18' centre to centre by 7' centre to centre. Roughly 1' overhangs off the front and ends. Those dimensions were primarily determined by the space it had to occupy as much as anything.

                              Haven't had much time, but got the ends cut with a portable bandsaw. Another pic of some of the guilty party.
