Earlier in the summer I revamped our deck and built a patio area. This week I added a 16'x 19' pergola. The main structure is built, but I plan to add another tier of smaller cross members on top, and will build a decorative arch in front between the posts and main beam. The main structure is made from pressure treated 2x material (2"x6"x16', 2"x8"x19', with 6"x6" posts), so it will need to be stained or clear coated sometime in the not-so-distant future. I'm also going to add some landscape stone at the base of the support posts to make them look more like columns. Right now it still looks like a construction site...there's a bunch of cleanup and landscaping to be done to the whole area, but I'll probably wait for cooler weather....too darn hot this summer! I'll update with more pics once the decorative details are done. Guess I'll be building furniture for it next summer!
