My wife has been wanting a pergola on the patio at the edge of the pool. I have to admit that I did not really want to tackle this project, I had never built a pergola before. We decided the size that we wanted and thought that would add a wood slats on the back to help shield homes from behind us. We used all treated cedar toned lumber. The slats on the back are actual cedar boards. When we were done our son came out and said that we should go into business putting these up.

  • Very nice! What kind of brackets were used to hold the posts together? Was this a kit? I’ve been wanting a pergola for a very long time! Hubby is not able to build it, he can help some but can’t do it alone. I’m waiting for my son to be able to come and help but not sure when that might be. He has a very busy job and a family of his own so.... 
    Hope you are enjoying it!
