Nothing fancy here. A pergola, built out of pressure treated lumber. 6×6, 2×12, 2×10, 2×6, 15 bags of concrete.

This pergola was built late fall / early winter, right before the cold temperatures hit us. The posts are made from 6×6 pine wrapped in 3/4” PVC boards (with a fake wood grain), and double wrapped at deck level to give it a sturdier appearance. All post holes are 36” deep, and hand dug.

Great job, I fully appreciate what you have done there. not easy hauling, holding, measuring and lifting all that by yourself.
