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 .

Great design all the way around. Purgola looks great, the finish makes it look aged or like it been there which i think is great. Its very natural or easy on the eyes. A very comfrotable space to chill in. Well done.

Beautiful space! I bet that cedar that big was not cheap.

And you said you’re NOT an artist. Step back and look at what you’re creating. Take you’re credit. CREDIT IS DUE ! Wonderful design work and craftsmanship.

Very nice! How did you make the curved cuts on the ends of those really thick beams?

I have always wanted a place like that. The roof support structure is really great. Wish you had a picture looking up into it. How many helpers did you have? cause those beams are massive! ~ e
