This is a purgola I designed for a special client . I design it with a fireplace , bb-q grill concrete hot tub and all made out of cedar. It was a massive undertaking for the posts were 12’‘x12’’ and the span was twenty two feet long so all the material was big and massive. The fireplace was set as well as the hot tub and I set the post square and began all my cutting at the studio . I notched and cut all material for the project under millwork conditions to control the exactness and square . The fence was 2’‘x 4’’ rough cedar notched and arched. When I gather all my parts I sent them all out and assembled as one unit . A timber frame construction notched joints and pegs will hold this forever and ever .
