Lovely, I really like the design on this one. I thought about building something like this for my parents garden for a while, but it wasn’t high enough priority so far and so it didn’t even make it into the planning stage yet. Looking at your project makes me want to start right away though.
Guess I should plan it over the wintertime and then start when spring arrives.

this looks great!!! I recently finished a much smaller redwood trellis that will hold vines—-so I would call yours a gazebo…the railing looks really nice too…

It really “fits” the environment.

Nice back yard! Wish it were mine…with the gazebo of course!

Nice structures. They look quite sturdy and handsome.

Love the redwood. And the deck, railings and hot tub all flow together beautifully. Magnificent.

I am planing a redwood project in the near future. I was wondering, what to finish or seal the redwood with? Thanks for sharing this great project it turned out top notch.

Ahhhh I love this! My bride and I are wanting to something similar on our back patio. That would be mind blowing to have something this cool in my own back yard. You done real good!

Thanks for sharing… Two big thumbs up!

It is obviously a pergola and a very beautiful one at that. I really like the redwood. It should not require any finish.

I built a pergola for our patio in 2001 and my wife still says that it is the best thing that I have ever built. It is on the south side of the house and provides lots of shade. I wish that I had used redwood.

Are the small square blocks used to hide the bolts?

I love the Asian influences in your pergola. I wish I had a back yard for one…

Thank you all for your comments!! the “square blocks” are actually square plugs to cover the lags. I like to use Cabot brand exterior finishes on redwood and cedar!

It looks very Japanese/Chinese… Like it myself! Some nice cold sake and a hibachi— Whoo hoo! Summertime rocks! Great piece.
