I’d say you’re doing quite well so far! Altho the sawdust on the patio furniture made me cringe a bit. The boss lady wouldnt let me hear the end of that until next spring.

Well yes she hates it. Problem is I don’t know how to do the roof. We want to put it up and use metal roofing.

Also need to replace the brackets / straps gilding the big beams

Any advice or help ?

Jungga is a spammer. DON’T click on his link.

You learn the most on the hard jobs. Keep up the good work. Your gazebo should look great.

Curious why you did not simply tie back to the deck beam? Design preference I am certain. The term gazebo implies a closed roof versus a pergola etc. Only two ways to go, ridge pole or truss. Personally, I am a beam and rafter guy.

- WaRIA

They are about the same in terms of build effort. Ridge beam and rafter is old school and what was done forever, has an open look and is probably more suited to the structure. You will likely need some joists spanning the “ceiling” to handle the lateral load. If it were my build, I would have one every other rafter (you will find some youtube examples that do not use joists, but they have a sheathed structure that gets strength in other ways, yours is open and will need the roof triangle to manage its own structural affairs.

Do you get snow where you are at?

Lots of youtube examples: https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=jlAj-pLksMg

We get a little snow sometimes one storm a year that’s a little tough but typically not to bad.

Joined this board to see if it could be done on my own. Being charged literally to to the roof structure and metal roofing someone wants 4K yikes!!

Just need a good guide or info

I have a chop saw, hammer drill, circular saw, jigsaw etx

Have your say...
