Pergola. Wednesday , January 10th , 2018 - 19:15:58 PM
Pergolas have been used in dwellings for centuries, classically, to add a shaded walkway, to link pavilions or to allow a sitting area which allows the breeze and sun to filter through. This amazing addition to a home will not only add to comfort, it can be an attractive bonus to the resale value of the home. Any open space around the home may be used as an invitation for a pergola. Over the years, pergola structures have adapted to the area so that there is a large variety in designs. While traditional pergolas were intended mainly for beauty and comfort, the current designs place more emphasis on providing protection from the harsh elements of nature such as rain and snow and ultra-violet radiation.
Another unique and beautiful pergola design that you may choose for a deck is one that integrates a seat or bench along the pergola’s edge. Any pergola that has sides can be used to support a bench. Just add several flat pieces of wood to form a seat and you will instantly find a comfy corner for reading or relaxing on your deck. You may also want to add hinges to the bench’s top to create convenient deck storage.
Over all, I had to spend just one long weekend plus the assistance of a friend to construct my own DIY pergola. Our job proceeded to go smoothly apart from a number of tiny errors which were quickly remedied because of the wood pliability. In my scenario the actual pergola has been mounted on an already present 1st floor deck on the front side of the home to increase the main shady space covering the first floor veranda. The final results have been completely remarkable if you ask me. I ended up being all the more amazed considering the cash saved in this process, because a pergola kit can easily cost you as much as $4000.
