These two arches are variations on Norm Abram’s New Yankee Workshop Redwood Arbor all the way back in season 5, 1992! His arch has a seat in it but I wanted it as a walk thru. The first is made of Redwood, holding true to the plan. It was photographed right after completion and is located at the top of my staircase leading from the sidewalk to the front door. I also built a second one to natch at the bottom of these stairs.
The second arbor I built as a gateway from my front yard into a garden sanctuary. I used PT for this project. This is where I have my birdhouse cedar bench that I have also posted. Since the arch was to be part of the fencing I adapted a gate to it. Of course the only look that would suffice was to keep the circular shape started by the arch.
