What are the dimensions of the boxes, the sitting board, and the side posts?

The ideal height for built in sitting is 18 inches.... the top "sitting board" appears to be a 2x6 and the "side posts" are 4x4. The raised boxes look to be about 5' x 10'.... there is no set dimension you need to follow. If you are planning on constructing raised boxes, do a little mock up and test how far you can comfortably reach the center of the box. I happen to be 6'4" with long arms and can easily reach the center of a 6' wide box, that may not be the case for some. Happy gardening and good luck! ~ Glenn!

Real Cedar is the trade association for Western Red Cedar.... follow the link and on their home page there is a link to locating a retailer.... there are 43 retailers in Virginia... let them know you found them on Houzz and Real Cedar website! Happy building!
