It took me two years to complete it, but the structure is finished and stained. In the spring I will make a blue stone and brick pathway underneath. I have planted wisteria vines on the three trellises ( a bear to buld I might add).
The structure adds an additional module which was stepped up due to grade.Thanks for the great plans.
Warm regards,Ed, now that you have the new skills, these kind of pergolas and laminations will be much easier. Nice work adding your own touches, like the routered rafter tails and even the additional bent forward. I think it turned out great. Be sure to send us some shots when the landscaping is finished!
Here is another one sent in by Cathy in Washington!
These are a few pictures of our recently completed pergola from the plans we purchased from your website. As you can see, we modified them to fit the shape of our house. We are both VERY pleased with the way it turned out.Cathy... I would be very pleased too! You did a beautiful job adapting the plan to your home and the builder did a gorgeous job....this one is by the book! I am very impressed...
You both have a free plan for your next project... Please choose whichever one you like. I am posting new plans as available in the coming weeks... so stay tuned! Some very interesting arbours with laminated arches are coming up!
These photos are actually pergola projects derived from the same plan-- P012 Pro Pergola Plans (click for more info)
There are 2 versions available, one is downloadable, and one is printed. The printed one comes with full size templates that you can trace onto sheet goods to make a hard template... Most people buy the printed version than the downloadable for that reason.
Happy building everyone!
