Thanks for asking. Here a synthetic wood headerboard (e.g. Trex brand) was used between the grass and the gravel.

Thank you, Chad! Unfortunately I don't remember the spacing on these. I'm going to guess it's around 10" - 11" on center; on this project I had given the carpenter latitude to evolve the design, and I think it was finalized on site.

where did you source the wood - was it custom milled or from a dealer?

Rafer, all the wood was purchased as dimensioned lumber in stock lengths from a commercial yard, then cut to size.

How are the 8 x 8 posts secured to the floor? I live in the mountains of CO and have high winds.

The posts are bolted to Simpson Strong-Tie fasteners embedded in poured concrete footings. I can't speak to whether this would be appropriate for your situation-- I highly recommend you speak with a licensed and experienced contractor to determine the best method for you.

How did you attach the middle rafter and the purlins?

I believe the middle rafter was toenailed (toescrewed?) into the beams, and the purlins toenailed (screwed) into the rafters.

If memory serves, those are 8x8 posts with 4x12 beams, 2x8 rafters and 4x6 purlins on top. Hope that helps!

John,
I am about to go purchase the materials for this project and I was curious on the bolt sizes you used to secure the rafter, etc.
Thanks for the help and I can't wait to see my finished project.
Wish me luck!!

Sorry, Jim, I can't tell you that. I didn't provide construction specs for this, just trusted the project carpenter. However, as far as I know there wasn't anything extraordinary about the fasteners, so I would guess a good DIY reference (or lumber yard) would be able to help you there. I will wish you luck, though -- post pics of your success here on Houzz!

That's Connecticut bluestone with red brick trim, installed on a concrete slab, with mortared joints.

Pergolas too big and too industrial for the scale of this property, we don't mind the freestanding aspect of the Pergola. I'm not a big fan of the short column supports.
