I am really enjoying this website and wanted to get some of my projects up so I can begin to post the new ones that are coming along.
This is a project I designed and built a couple of year’s ago at our townhome, which is now a rental property of ours. The most rewarding part of this project is that I got to do this with my Dad. He came up from Georgia on a Friday, and we set the posts that day. Then, on Saturday we basically knocked the entire pergola out. It was such a cool deal to be able to do this with my Dad. The time spent together swinging a hammer was just priceless.
After the structure was complete, I had power run to it for the ceiling fan and light, and had a dual switch installed right inside the doors. We also added a drop down shade which really made it seem like another room off the house. New Years Eve of the year we even put down a dance floor on the patio, hung a disco ball and some lights, and it become our dance floor!
A fun project, a great experience with my dad, and an added value to our townhome. It was a great weekend!
