Add elegance to your outdoor living by building this airy build-to-suit Pavilion Pergola. Easily sized to fit any space, this versatile pergola will enhance your deck, patio, yard or garden. Long a favorite in Mediterranean climates, pergolas are an attractive and practical way to add architectural interest, character, and shade to your landscape. The overhead structure works like a big shade tree, letting only a portion of the sun shine through. Also a great focal point for decoration and design by adding vines, climbing plants, lights, hanging baskets and even ribbon, balloons or streamers for special occasions!
Features: Make from cedar, redwood, pine or treated lumber. Build as a freestanding structure (on porch or deck) or set in ground. Easily sized to fit any space. The project goes together like Lincoln Logs with easy slotted subassemblies that are pre-cut before construction.
