Gazebo, beachside and hurricane proofcomments (0) June 1st, 2010 in Project Gallery
This is a six sided gazebo I singlehandedly designed and built learning as I'd go. The 18 foot pilings are 12 feet above ground and 6 feet below. Since it's beachfront all hardware is stainless. The roof structure was complex to think through and frame together. It also features a cupola. The thatched roof is comprised of over 600 palm fronds which were painstakenly collected in the wild and intricately installed sort of shingle style with copper roofing nails. It's weatherproof and cool under. A radial arm saw I received as a gift (thanks Diana) was used for the entire project.
