DIY Pergola

Updated: Aug 9, 2021


We had trouble finding a triangle shaped pergola that was big enough (and still within our budget) for the space we wanted, so we decided to build one ourselves from scratch. All of the materials we used were picked up from our local hardware store, and all of the wood was cut and stained from stock. We sketched out a basic plan prior to starting, but did a lot of the design work as we went. Which means a lot of this pergola is customizable for the creative builder! I hope you like it!
