Gazebo. Published at Monday, October 08th 2018, 15:00:42 PM by Shelby G.
You need to determine the exact manner in which you will be using your gazebo before you start looking for plans to build the gazebo. Are you going to use it as an outdoor office? Are you going to use it as a storage space? Are you going to use it for organizing parties? Make sure you have a clear idea of your requirements before you start searching for gazebo plans.
Once you have a clear picture of your requirements you can decide what design and shape of gazebo will be most suitable for you. You also need to make sure what kind of accessories and enhancements you will need inside the gazebo. If you would like to have running water and electricity inside the gazebo, it is better to plan for this right from the beginning.
Make sure you have a fair idea about the size of the gazebo you are going to build. Don't try to fit a huge gazebo into a small piece of land. This will end up making you backyard look crowded and will actually decrease the beauty of the landscape. If availability of land is not a problem, then you should base your decision of size, on the purpose of the gazebo. If you are thinking of holding parties inside the gazebo, it is better to allow as much space as possible. On the other hand, if your gazebo is going to be more private then you may be happier with a smaller size. Make sure you gazebo plans have accurate measurements of all dimensions of the gazebo.
It is crucial that the land on which you are planning to build the gazebo is exactly level. If this is not the case, then make the ground level by using concrete and dirt. You can also build a deck to give the gazebo a more solid base. Discuss the foundation depths with you local building authorities before beginning construction to avoid problems later.
Cedar is one of the best woods which can be used for building outdoor structures. It is highly weather resistant and resistant to insects and pests. You can also use redwood, but it will be a litter more expensive than cedar. You can use bark to cover the outside of the gazebo instead of painting it, if you want to give it a more natural look.
