Gazebo & Pavilion Kits
North American’s Source For Outdoor Living Shelter Structures
There is not an EASIER heavy timber pavilion or gazebo kit to install than a Western Timber Frame™ ShadeScape® kit.
Of course, we provide onsite installation if you desire us to install your kit for you.
In many aspects, they are often easier to install than even typical hardware store kits because their sheer size and strength allow for posts to stand upright. This combined with the interlocking joints makes for a straightforward installation.
With our easy interlocking corners and drop-in rafter layouts, the hard work is already done for you by our experienced craftsman. You simply put it together onsite.

Our unique corner system allows for a quick, snap-together beam-to-post application. This system also reduces future warping, twisting and gap exposure.
Pavilion or Gazebo
Pavilions are free-standing with a fully covered roof to provide an umbrella-like shelter for protection from inclement weather. A pavilion is open on all sides to furnish comfort and convenience to indulge in the invigorating open air and delight the eyes with the vibrant ever-changing display of colors and magnificent beauties of nature.
A pavilion that is built for the express purpose of taking in the surrounding view is referred to as a gazebo, meaning that it is a place to gaze from. Gazebos have their own natural charm and traditionally have a domed, covered roof with many options in designs and shapes.
A gazebo is the most commonly used term for an octagon, a hexagon, or round shape but they have also been classified as a chalet, kiosk, pagoda, or rotunda as well as a pavilion. Pavilions or gazebos are customarily adjacent to or within a short distance from a main residence, building or camping area. They provide the perfect place for pleasure, relaxation and entertainment.
The Advantages of a ShadeScape® Timber Pavilion or a Gazebo Kit
ShadeScape® pavilions and gazebos economically expand the home beyond the carport or boathouse to furnish more living area. It affords the perfect gathering place for family and friends, for all events and celebrations.
These outdoor living rooms can feature the same conveniences of indoor luxury living. For outdoor kitchenettes, they can be as simple as a fire-pit or more decked out with barbecues, ovens, fireplaces, full commercial kitchens, complete with lights, fans, counters, refrigerator, outdoor television and so much more.
The indoor living room has also moved to the outdoors, with outdoor theaters complete with surround sound stereo, outdoor furniture, radiant heaters, shades, lights and all you need to kick back and and unwind.
For swimming, a Western Timber Frame™ ShadeScape® pavilion or gazebo kit creates a perfect pool house or covering for a spa hot tub for a relaxing sauna while listening to music or watching movies.
ShadeScape® Commercial or Recreational Timber Pavilion or a Gazebo Kit
Pavilion and gazebos have always served for commercial or recreational facilities, parks, businesses, business and sporting events, concerts, bandstands, commercial enterprises, outdoor restaurants and more.
Residential Pavilions and Gazebos, once dominating primarily prestigious landscaped estates, have gained immense popularity, commonly transforming an ordinary landscape into illustrious outdoor living space.

Added lighting results in all hours of ideal family time for barbecues, parties, reunions, weddings, receptions or any outdoor celebration anytime. It is so easy and convenient to enjoy time alone, a romantic evening, formal gatherings or casual entertaining.

Typical Gazebo & Pavilion Kits
Cracking after just 18 months
Western Timber Frame™ The Dovetail Difference® Notching System
Tight Joints after the 18 months
This massive mortised dovetail joint connection system we call The Dovetail Difference® throughout our timber construction process creating very strong, rigid joints. On the test pictured above it didn’t give until it hit over 11,000 lbs.!!!
Hide Unsightly Hardware and Bolts
Our special mortised joints not only allow for a long-lasting, perfect joint, but it also virtually eliminates the use of unsightly galvanized brackets, hangers, and bolts. Instead, we are able to hide all of this behind the beams and rafters giving you the beautiful old world craftsmanship from timberwright artisans.
Take note of the extremely tight joints that you see in all of our pictures. These joints are not the exception but the rule for every timber trellis or arbor kit we deliver.
The quality of their work is outstanding. It was refreshing to see the work performed on time and as scheduled. I have never contracted work before without a reference, except for these projects and I’m very happy regarding the outcome. Their work is excellent. Thanks Hyrum!

Watch this time lapse installation of one of our ShadeScape® kits.
- Quick Shade
- Easy to install
- Finish in one afternoon
We test fit every single piece before we ship to ensure that your installation will be easy and fun.
Unlike other full size timber Gazebo or Pavilion kits only meant for professional craftsman, we’ve designed our kits as a task that can be completed in one afternoon with the help of a friend or two and a few basic tools. All necessary Gazebo or Pavilion ShadeScape® Kit parts are pre-cut, pre-drilled, and pre-notched for ease of installation.
A Western Timber Frame Gazebo or Pavilion is Unrivaled in Strength, Comfort and Quality.
Wind Blows Over Aluminum Pergola
Snow Fall Causes Vinyl Pergola Collapse
Often advertised as “maintenance free”, the initial low cost vinyls or aluminums can be attractive to some. For others, their cheap aesthetic look not only spoils the appearance of the home or business but procures a high cost far beyond its value. Even with metal stiffeners and wood additives these imitation “low cost” synthetic alternatives do not carry the strength or thermal properties required to withstand strong winds or shield from the harsh elements for a sound, comfortable Gazebo or Pavilion.
Timber is less prone to condensation than aluminum or vinyl and is less affected by temperature extremes.
It looks awesome!! Only took about 3 1/2 hrs. My brother said this is a GREAT kit!!! Said if you ever needed anyone to install in our area that he’d be more than happy to do it. Just wanted to let you know how excited we are!

These interlocking joints are used on the posts, beams, etc. Our skilled timberwright artisans test fit every single piece before we ship to ensure that your installation will be easy and fun.
Once you have leveled your posts, and, if desired, secured them to a footing, patio, in the ground, etc., you then insert your beams into the mortised joints, as shown below.
Slotted Drop-in Rafter Layout Saves You Time and Prevents Warping and Twisting
Another unique feature that we include with every timber arbor or trellis kit is drop-in rafter layouts. There are two main benefits of the drop-in rafter layout.
The first is ease of installation. Because the timber beam that supports the rafters is already marked and slotted, you don’t have to measure anything or try to figure the proper spacing of your rafters. However, the primary benefit of the drop-in rafter layout is that it helps prevent warping and twisting of the rafters year after year. The hard work is done for you by our experienced craftsman.
Select From Our Extensive Beam Profile Options
The decorative beam end profiles are no additional cost. Something that many of our customers opt for is to send us their own custom beam end profile. This is often the perfect way to tie in some other element of your home or business. These are just some of the more popular decorative beam end profiles that you can choose from.
Select From One of Our Stock Colors & Stains
We only use the highest quality premium grade stains. These stains are our standard colors that we have had developed based on customer feedback. As you browse our gallery, notice the examples. If you see something you like, you can have it in any color you see here.
We also offer as an upgrade customized colors such as this white below for example. Talk to one of our design managers if you have something specific in mind.
Please note: due to different computer monitors/calibrations stain/paint colors may vary slightly from what is pictured.
Choose One of Our Standard Knee Brace Styles
Besides personalizing your kit with decorative end profiles and stains, you also have the option of any one of our knee braces. Besides adding beauty and contrast to the horizontal and vertical beams and posts, knee braces add strength and durability to your pergola and help ensure that you will not have any twisting or warping throughout the life of your pergola kit.
