I made this pergola for a friend. It was 12X12. I just realized that I do not have a good finished picture. O well, you get the idea. My father (the older looking one) helped me and was the extra set of hands. Thanks pops!

Howdy, I have one of these in my sights. I like your design. Kudos.
I count 4 4×4s to hold the whole thing up. I’m surprised that’s all you needed. Awesome.

4 4X4s should be plenty. Since it is open top, there is no need for any type of “snow load” or any type of water shedding ability. If i was going to put a roof on it, I would have increased the 4X4’s.

I did some similar pergolas, 4×4’s are really all that are needed but I added 2×6’s on two sides for “effect” and a bit of added stiffness… mostly for the look….
Ya done good!

How’d you anchor this to the ground?

That looks nice. Now maybe they can get some vines growing on it.

I don’t know what they are called but there is an concrete anchor in the concrete form. The anchor is then attached to the 4×4. It works really well. Sorry i don’t know the proper name.
