We recently constructed a 12 by 20 ft. pergola for a client who had previously installed a concrete pad with gas piping in ground for his gas grill.  This was a fun little project.

It involved applying for and receiving the permit and then building the pergola per the owner’s pre-engineered specifications; managing the roofing by a subcontractor and cleaning the area of all refuse.

The pergola was constructed primarily of fir with HDG fasteners. The steel end plates are both decorative and structural elements.

The pergola is now ready for summer barbecues, and rain is not a problem with this sturdy roof!
