20′ x 20′ Stunning Pent Roof Pavilion w/Metalwork

By | 2019-01-18T09:08:25+00:00 January 18th, 2019|Pergola Kits|

A stunningly beautiful Contemporary Style Pavilion with a pent roof is excellent for high rain and snow regions allowing snow and water to run off easily. Aside from all its practical design purposes, Pent Roof Pavilions create awesome architectural aesthetic appeal. The DIY Pavilion is a 6000 Series ShadeScape® Kit featuring a 20' x 20' roof and a footprint size (post-to-post) of 18' x18'. Fascia (the exposed band at the end of the rafters) is wrapped around all four sides adding bulkier visual interest. A pent roof is a mono-pitched single sloped roof, often not attached to another roof surface. A pent roof is also referred to as a shed roof, skillion roof, and/or lean-to roof.

DIY 2-Tone Cantilever Pergola Pavilion Duo

By | 2019-01-15T15:03:00+00:00 January 15th, 2019|Pergola Kits|

Spending more time in the #WinterSunshine is easy with a Pergola and #DIYPavilionKit. Sunshine, even on cloudy days gives you Vitamin D, which is vital to health. Pergolas are designed to let in more of the sunshine. Pavilions offer full #ProtectiveRoofing. For year-round use of a patio or deck area, I love the pavilion, pergola combination by Design Manager Brian Thompson. Beneath the pergola and pavilion are an #OutdoorKitchen, living room with hot tub and #SmokelessFirepit. The #OutdoorLivingArea keeps the family from being stuck inside during the winter. It is also the favorite gathering place for the kids and grandkids on any and every day, For the holidays, birthdays and special occasions the patio accommodates large gatherings with friends and neighbors.

DIY Pavilion Plan Projected 2wk Install, FAMILY Did it in 2 Days!

By | 2019-01-09T11:31:48+00:00 January 8th, 2019|Pergola Kits|

"After researching locally for a contractor to build our outdoor pavilion with kitchen and fireplace we found Western Timber Frames. Locally everything is built out of cedar. Having plenty of experience with cedar, douglass fir really appealed to me. Cedar life expectancy down here is about 10 years. Western Timber Frames has a 25-year warranty. Due to the size of the investment and the uncertainty of who I was buying from, My wife and I flew up to Salt Lake from Houston. We met with Brian once we arrived. A super fantastic gentleman who's very accommodating and laid back. Brian took us around on a Saturday when they were closed and showed us actual finished products. He also gave us a tour of the plant and explained the manufacturing process. We were impressed and made the decision while we were visiting. They are legit. They are [...]
