Go Pergola Go!

07.11.12 | Comment?

Although it’s not entirely complete, Kathy’s pergola is finally at a point where it looks finished. All it needs is some more lag bolts (currently it just has temporary screws in a few of the cross beams), then the additional 2″x2″s which span the top. It’s been finished for a week or so now, but I haven’t had a chance to sit and blog until today.

I couldn’t have pulled it off so quickly and easily if it wasn’t for The Dude’s help. He put in about 16 weekend hours, and his advice saved me tons of time I’m sure.

I’m fairly certain Kathy is satisfied with it as she’s already begun hanging drapes, lanterns, and plants despite it’s unfinished state. I thought it looked awesome when I finished it, but now that she’s started decorating and using the space it looks even better. I know this won’t be the last one I build since Holly has already expressed an interest in having a pergola of her own one day, and that’s okay. Usually the second one is easier and better.
