5' tall, usually 16-18" at base, 12" on top. Note that the beam above is a bit too wide, should be 12".

Most are waterproof plywoods, good quality. But there are PVC versions that are pretty good, too.

Thanks for your quick replies! Sorry I asked on two different photos; it was late. I really like the design!
