This is exactly what I want. It took me so long to find this site. But where can I get people who can build louvres? We live on the beach front. I need something which can stand for strong wind. Which materials are right, steel or wood?

Wonderful site!

One company who supplies and installs vergolas is Sunlite. The generic name is Vergola so give that a go in your area :)

Than you so much, Suzanne Hunt :) I will contact Sunlite soon. Hopefully they will be interested, since I live in Mandurah, a bit far from them. I really like your Swanbourne House Pergola. I want two pergolas facing the sea. I am still not sure if I should use steel or wood. :(
