Cedar Pergola/Composite deck

  • June 23, 2012


This was a project I built for a neighbor. She saw the pergola at a home
improvement store and HAD to have it! It's on a base of 6(six) 2' deep by 12"
dia concrete footers with a sub-frame of 2x8 PT joists. The decking is 1" PVC.
The rest of the project is all cedar, including the custom made railing. I did
this project by myself, in 8 days. The deck is 12'x14' and the pergola is
10'x12'. The homeowner is absolutely elated and this project was built
exclusively with Ryobi One+ tools! I utilized my 18v L-ion circular saw, drill,
reciprocating saw and router!
