Hello fellow, LJ’ers,
I would like to build a pergola this spring to have for the summer. In the past we have purchased the metal and canvas tents from the big box stores, but they never last and for the money I spent I could build 3 of them. I did a search for pergolas on here and came up with tons of them, but would like to ask a few things first. I am thinking in terms of the size about 10’ X 12’ and 10’ high roughly.
1. Have any of you reading this built any pergola’s that you were very fond of?
2. What materials did you use, ( I’m thinking Red cedar myself)
3. How long did it take? I am thinking about a full day, so I will allow for 3 days, just in case something comes up, and/or I get lazy, LOL
4. How did you anchor it to the ground?
I am sure I am forgetting a whole slew of questions, please feel free to point out what I am forgetting. Thanks in advance for the responses.
