I love this Pergola! - This is exactly what I am looking for. Could you please tell me what materials were used? It looks like it might be metal but possibly wood. I love the amount of shade you get, we live in Palm Springs. Thank you for your time, Leisurehouse

hi there, sorry for the delayed reply, I am going to try harder to answer questions!

Its all wood construction, painted white, and just radiata pine. It does give a great effect of light and shade!

I just love how close together the slats on this pergola are. My husband and I are remodeling our backyard, so we are looking for the best products to install. We'll have to find a pergola with slats like this so that it will give us more shade. http://www.aluminumbuilders.com/patio-covers/

How did you brace and attach the cross beams? - I was looking at the details of the support poles and I think you have cut into the pole for the outside cross beams as well as the longitudinal one across the front; or are you doing something else for the support? Also how are you bracing the other cross beams? I don't see the bracing at all - nicely done however you did it!

Hi, thanks for your comment. There is no bracing, the structure is self supporting in that the battens are fixed to the beams which makes the whole thing very rigid. Its not going anywhere!

construction of the roof - was the 'pergola' planned? added after? how was it constructed? how did you add it to your existing siding? how does it hold up to weather? do you get snow?

Wow thats alot of questions! No snow, but lots of sun! And yes, it was planned. Of course, like anything, it need maintenance. But will hold up as well as anything else. Cheers, Rosemary

A nice idea of a pergola, which provides more shade
