Great question....No but my son-in-law has that next on his list of things to make for me. He is such a gifted carepenter. . I am so excited..I can hardly wait. There is something so enchanting aobut them.
Sounds like you have a great son-in-law. As beautiful as the gazebo will be, I'm sure it will mean all the more to you that it was crafted by his own hands. Hope you write a hub about it when it's completed.
No. But, it is something I envision putting on my retirement property that is currently in slow development. I'm thinking I want it to be ready made and delivered to the property. My husband, of course wants to build it from scratch. We shall see.
Gazebos are so nice! We don't have a permanent structure but rather a H/D metal frame w/ a tiered fabric top and curtained sides. We use it as an outdoor room and watch movies on summer nights. We assembled it ourselves and can put the curtained sides away as the weather gets nasty.
I'll do ya one better. Same thing at my house. Lost the fabric top. Planted wisteria around four corners and it totally filled in with a bit of coersion. Spectacular! Get tons of compliments on my masterpiece of a sitting area. Put lights all over.
Hi Rutley, That sounds beautiful! Great tip! We had to order a replacement canopy after 3 years. Our seating area in the far back of our yard is too near an avocado tree, and tt sheds leaves constantly. I may use your idea when we move. Thanks.
