Jeff, I actually have no idea. We did not provide construction specs, just allowed the carpenter to do his thing. Sorry I can't be more help!

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

Looks, great! Do you remember the spacing on the purlins though?

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.

Gravel? - Hi what material is the gravel outside the patio? I'm thinking about using something like that as a path. Thank you.

Erin, thanks for asking! The posts are about 13'-3" on center (wide) by 10'-3" on center (deep), while the rafters etc. are about 16'-0" wide by 13'-6" deep. The overall structure is about 9' tall.

How did you attach the middle rafter and the purlins?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
PRO
Verdance Landscape Design
I believe the middle rafter was toenailed (toescrewed?) into the beams, and the purlins toenailed (screwed) into the rafters.

I'm fairly certain the posts are Con Heart but the beams etc. may have been Heart B. This carpenter has excellent relationships with a lumber yard who often lets him hand-pick pieces that are tagged as Con Heart but clear enough to look like B grade. I hope this 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.
