Just thought I would throw this on here. It is almost completed, just in time to not use it. I have to finish a couple small items and move the hot tub over under the pergola and get the table and chairs moved over. At least my wife is happy she has her addition. It will give her something to do in the spring and get me back into my shop! I will have to wait until spring to stain it now, too cold! Snow will be on it by next week probably.
My wife wanted a open pergola to put the hot tub under and she also wanted a place to put the out door table, but still utilize her umbrella with the table. It was fun to do, but a lot of routering, as every single connection with every single piece of wood was routered into one another a 1/2”. The lattice is pvc and will need painted with plastic paint in the spring. The piping is 3/4” metal conduit spray painted black. Thanks for looking.

I really didn’t like the plastic square lattice, which was white and I painted it black. Which the stupid paint didn’t stick anyway. So I went looking for wooden square lattice and of course couldn’t find any. So I built a jig on my table and made my own. Much happier with the way it turned out this time.

VERY nice!! I’ll have to make sure my wife doesn’t visit this site for a day or two . . . until this rolls off the top 15. ;)

I really like the way you have designed to fit the environment. The obstructed view of the hillside and open view of the rest of the property was very clever. The Pergola looks like a great place for a gathering of friends and a BBQ.

This is really nice. My wife has been after me to build her a pergola since last fall. She loves what you have done. Now if i could only talk my wife into a hot tub. Enjoy your project.

-- Rob, You have failed if you have not tried.
