Porch top Pergola

I had a ugly looking 7' x 14' cement slab for a porch on the side of my house with no railings to keep friends from falling off or any type of protection from the sun or elements. So my fiancé suggested I build a pergola on top of it to not only offer reprieve but add beauty to the house. After searching the internet for many different designs and ideas they all seemed to be the same boring style so I formulated what I thought would be perfect, which constantly evolved as I went along. Since I'm a diesel mechanic and not a carpenter, this project took a little longer then I'm sure others can do it, and I am also a perfectionist which required a lot of planning, plotting and measuring. To get me started my fiancé bought me the Ryobi One + drill and driver combo which made the work flow. The results speak for itself.

The results are amazing! What a great way to transform a boring, sterile space into a welcoming place to relax. Thank you especially for sharing the before and after shots. It's always so neat to see what a space looked like before a major project like this. Beautiful work!
