Pergolas: Outdoor Living

We just completed this pergola project for one of our customers. It only took us 2 days once we had all the materials (Cedar, asphalt shingles and rock). Pergolas seem to be very popular this summer- this is one of four I have built in the past 2 months. They can vary in size, type of roof, detail, and overall design. I'm even considering building one over a section of my driveway as a nice little carport. They are also great for outdoor kitchen covers, meeting spaces, parks, playgrounds, outdoor living areas, hot tubs, and the list goes on. This specific pergola was built as an outdoor living area and will soon have a rock fireplace as well. Here are some pictures:

If you are interested in building a pergola or know someone who is please contact me! If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to ask. Start to enjoy some outdoor living!

  1. Hey! Will you please follow my blog? =] It is: Have a great day!

  2. Pergola roofs with exposed rafters and colorbond roofing for that authentic Aussie look. Pergolas are an inexpensive way to provide shade from the sun and rain and provide you with an outdoor room in which to entertain. Adding clear sheets to the pergola roof will allow light to brighten the area and are high UV blockers.
