Timber Pavilions & Gazebos

Enjoy your Backyard under the Protection of a ShadeScape® Pavilion


familybarbequeLive in Your Backyard

Create a room in your backyard. Build a beautiful outdoor space where you and your family can gather in privacy. Design a vacation spot in your backyard, where you and your family can escape the house. Start living life outside under the protection of a heavy timber Pavilion.


Pavilions provide complete protection from the weather. Spend a crisp winter evening toasting marshmallows around an open fire, or get your family together for a summer barbeque. With a completely covered roof, you can enjoy your backyard in any season with a ShadeScape® Timber Pavilion.


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 an octagon or hexagon shape.

Megan Harbertson Testimonial Pic

“We could go interview all of our neighbors they could tell you that the Harbertsons were out here all summer long using this pavilion. I mean, we already used our backyard a lot. But this just doubled our usage. And it is great, you want kids here. You want to use your stuff. So it really helped extend the use of our backyard, and make it more functional. Even during the day, I could come sit out here by the pool and watch the kids swim and not be baked by the sun.” – Megan Harbertson – UT

I’m still amazed at how affordable such a gorgeous pergola is, and how much it completes our backyard. Tyler has been so great to work with. The value, craftsmanship, and beauty of this product is second to none.” David & Valerie Osmond – UT

screen-shot-2016-11-01-at-1-09-25-pm“We really love it. Big summer parties with friends and neighbors and some outdoor fires even during the Fall and early Spring. We even sleep in the pavilion during the summer. There is nothing like a good thunderstorm out there as well. It’s an outdoor extension to our home. One of the best investments we’ve made.” – Jeff Leighliter – IL

“Western Timber Frame was wonderful to work with. They were easy to talk to. They came out quickly after we called them. They gave us an appraisal, and then when they lined up people to come out and do the cement work it was done quickly. I especially love that it is a family business; that there are a lot of brothers that work together. And when they came out, there were two brothers who installed the entire pavilion in one day” – Calleen Argyle – UT

Sampson Family 10x10 Louvered Roof Pergola

“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 – UT

Andrus Family Pergola

“Before I found them, I was going to have one self built. But when I found them it was kind of a no brainer to have them manufacture it. Because I wanted something heavy. Rather than the light little you know 2×4 or 2×6 construction. I wanted something that was heavy and sturdy and looked proportional.” – Lindsay Andrus – UT

Unlimited ways to Customize Your Kit


You can’t go wrong with the traditional style, it’s a classic. The traditional style utilizes design features reminiscent of early American and European architecture.

The traditional style primarily draws attention to decorative beam profiles and visible interlocking joinery. As you look at the rafters and post-to-beam joints, you and your friends will love the awe-inspiring look of the heavy timber framing, and beautiful traditional craftsmanship.

Hipped Roof

3-post pavilion

A hipped rooftop means that you have a slope to all four sides of your pavilion. The hipped roof is a complex, elegant and attractive design option. A hipped roof pavilion is not as open as the traditional style.

A hipped roof pavilion is not as open as one with traditional gables, but you will enjoy the extra comfort of a dedicated cozy space. Hipped rooftops are somewhat more resistant to high winds, but they are more enclosed. If desired, you can go even further with a cross-hipped roof.
