This is an eastern red cedar japanese style pagoda with a swing incorporated. The timbers are 5×5’s and included a lot of pegged mortise and tenon joinery with a few exceptions where it was dado’d and lag bolted. The roof is board and batten style and works good. It was built pretty much in place as it weighs about 1000lb or so. This was made for my wife and is on the patio I also built. The patio stone came from a barter with a friend as did the cement work under the stone (8” slab). The cement I payed for, the work was the payment for the cedar swing I also posted.
