    "The Pergola went together like Lincoln Logs"
    — Patty Sampson, West Valley City, UT
    When I first saw my friend's pergola (also from Western Timber Frame) I drooled. So I started planning our backyard makeover. When I found out they were having a drawing for a free pergola, I entered. I never expected to win; but that's exactly what happened! Once I stopped screaming (yay!) I started to try and lower my expectations. I mean, when you win things like this it's usually some kind of up-sell, right? "Yes you won our most basic, but if you want all four posts you'll have to pay extra." That kind of thing. But there were no strings attached!! They let me know I could have it delivered (for free) and I could decide to install it myself, or they could install it for me (for a reasonable fee). Long story short, I decided to have them install it. And here is where the real quality and virtue of the company really shone. The install team was excellent. They dug deep footings, and made sure that my experience was a quality one. Not once did I feel like I was getting a second hand product. The guys showed incredible attention to detail. They left my yard looking fantastic, and kept the work area clear so that my 3 year old and I could safely watch the whole process. It was so cool! The Pergola went together like Lincoln Logs. And the pergola in my back yard is just as gorgeous and durable as the one my friend bought that started this whole adventure. I highly recommend Western Timber Frame. If you are looking for affordable, durable, and high end, this is the place to go! This was an excellent experience from start to finish. Thank you Western Timber Frame! - Patty Sampson.

    "Assembled and installed in just a few hours"
    — Rick & Nancy Bowen, Holladay, UT
    We couldn’t believe our beautiful pergola was completely assembled and installed in just a few hours. It’s beautiful, very sturdy and just as impressive as the displays at the Home Show. Friday evening we were able to sit under our new pergola and admire it. Wow! That kind of service and craftsmanship is very unusual today. You won’t be sorry if you choose Western Timber Frame. We are so impressed that we would be happy to give a personal reference to anyone who would like to call us. We may even install a second one in our yard next year. Thanks again to the guys at Western Timber Frame.

    "You are definitely artisans"
    — Devon O'Brien , Holladay, UT
    Dear Brad, I just want to thank you and everyone else at Western Timber Frame for doing such an incredible job on our Pergola! When I started the process of finding someone to do this job for us, I was quickly impressed with your knowledge and willingness to make sure that it would turn out just the way we wanted. It has been an enjoyable process, working with Hyrum and yourself. I am so impressed with the craftsmanship of your work. The beams fit together perfectly and I can't even tell where the joints are. I couldn't believe that your crew showed up and all the timber was pre-cut and stained, ready to be installed. Nothing had to be re-cut. It had all been measured perfectly. You are definitely artisans. I will certainly recommend you and Western Timber Frame to anyone who wants a first class job, along with a great experience.
  • "The experts at Western Timber Frame built my pergola with precision"
    — David O., Farmington, UT
    The experts at Western Timber Frame built my pergola with precision, beauty and genuine care. The quality and price were incomparable - the competitors proposed inferior and paltry designs. Before the installation, my deck was sun-baked and bare. Now I have an elegant and functional place for parties and entertainment. I am planning another project for the great crew at Western Timber Frame. Thanks!
  • "The finished product exceeded my expectation"
    — Brian Uraynar, Seal Beach, CA
    I was in the process of making arrangements to have a pergola built when I came across a Western Timber Frame display at Costco. I was so impressed with the quality of their pergolas I purchased one the next day. Their overall design is far superior to what I was going to have built and the finished product exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend Western Timber Frame to anyone that is looking to build a pergola.
  • "We couldn’t be happier with our new pergola!"
    — David and Linda Zuckerman, Erda, UT
    We couldn't be happier with our new pergola! The boys that came to do the work were very concerned with doing their job and doing it well. Just a very nice experience, thank you and we have another project we will be having you do for us soon
  • "We love it"
    Lonnie Hegge, Omaha, NE
    Karen and I could not be more pleased. Great product we love it and all of the neighbors do too.
  • "I would definitely use Western Timber Frame again"
    Howard & Peggy Bigenho, Eagle Mountain, UT
    I love my new pergola! I saw your pergola at the Sandy Expo and fell in love with the quality parts and workmanship that go into your pergolas which I didn’t find with the other companies. I was also impressed with the installation. The workmen were knowledgeable and worked quickly. It was surprisingly finished in only 3 1/2 hours and the patio and driveway were picked up and swept. I was a little concerned, with the large size of the timbers, that the pergola would over-power my house, but that’s not the case at all. It’s very sturdy and will look beautiful for years to come. I would definitely use Western Timber Frame again as other projects arise and would definitely recommend your company to others.
  • "Thank You All So Much!"
    Gregory Cox, South Fulton, TN
    Brad- I want to thank you and everyone at Western Timber Frame for your help in transforming our pool area. After searching the internet for pergola kits, your over-sized pergolas stood head and shoulders above the competition. Your staff answered endless questions from me before I placed my order. I will sing the praises of Western a Timber Frame for years to come! Thank you all so much for producing a quality product that is easy enough for anyone to assemble in one day with a few friends.

America's Premier Timber Gazebo or Pavilion Kit; Western Timber

There is not an easier heavy timber pavilion or gazebo kit to install than the ShadeScape™ kits from Western Timber Frame™.

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.

Pavilion or Gazebo

Traditional-before-after-photos

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™ 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.

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.

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 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.

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.

sybrowsky-spring-gazeb
rafter notched

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.
