Arbor over sidwalk

  • May 9, 2014


I built this arbor over the sidwalk for my father for Father's Day. The challenge was to build an arbor that would span this 7 foot wide sidwalk and still maintain a balance of width to height. Also it was important to keep the theme of the house in mind (the house is of 1740 German build with steep roof lines). The cherry tree that cascades the shadows is almost as old as the house and being careful not damage the root system was a truely unique challenge. The attic of this old house has a rafter system almost resembling the roof on this arbor.
