Create A Kit Uniquely Your Own

Available Upgrade Options

dovetail full knee braces pergola kit

Arched Knee Brace With KeyStone

Arched Knee Braces span the length between two beams and include a decorative keystone.

Arched Support Beams

Arched support beams create a smooth arched effect to the pergola. Keystones may be added if desired (see below).


We drill a hole down the center of one of the posts to accommodate all of your lighting and electrical needs.

Privacy Lattice

Four-foot tall privacy lattices may be attached to one or more sides of the pergola to provide additional shade and privacy.

Full Wrap™

Beam profiles can be shown along all four sides of the pergola roof for added symmetry.

Radius Roof

Rafters extend over the frame of the structure to form a radius which provides additional shade to your patio.

Decorative Keystones

One of our most popular pergola add-ons are the decorative keystones. We offer the tear-drop keystone or the dove-tail keystone to add a finishing touch to your pergola.

T&G Covered Roof

Top planks completely cover the whole roof to provide total shade for your deck or patio.

Louvered Roof

With the click of a remote, the roof will open or close to meet your needs, whether it be sun or shade! When closed the roof will protect your deck and patio furniture from sun, snow, heat, and rain. It is also 98% waterproof!

A ShadeScape® Kit is Unrivaled in Strength, Comfort, and Quality.

Often advertised as “maintenance free”, the initial low cost of vinyl or aluminum 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 pergola.

Timber is less prone to condensation than aluminum or vinyl and is less affected by temperature extremes.

From the first contact to the successful installation of your ShadeScape® Kit, Western Timber Frame™ delivers Perfection.

Hide Unsightly Hardware and Bolts

Our special mortised joints not only allow for a long-lasting, perfect joint, but also virtually eliminate 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. 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 pergola kit we deliver.

Easy Installation

These interlocking joints are used on the posts, beams, etc. We 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 pergola 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.

[pl_blockquote cite=”Dennis W., Marriott-Slaterville, UT”] 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![/pl_blockquote]

We test fit every single piece before we ship to ensure that your installation will be easy and fun.

#3: Choose From One of Our Standard Knee Brace Styles (when applicable)

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.

Quick Start – FAQ

We build a tremendous variety of kits. Kit sizes range from 8′ x 8′ up to 20′ x 20′ +. Your kit can be square, a rectangle, or even round. Our architects design and ensure that your kit is engineered properly.

  • If you want a kit with a 30′ beam span, we can make it work.
  • If you want a custom terraced kit, and multiple decks, we can make it happen.
  • If you want to build a timber kit that has never built before, we will help you.

Share your ideas with us and watch them blossom. We will make your dreams a reality! Whether your kit is simple or extremely complex, your experience working with us will be easy and straightforward.

We don’t list kit prices because every kit is custom designed and built to fit your needs. Our costs go up and down depending on timber prices and availability, and we adjust our pricing accordingly to give you a better deal.

When you contact us, you will find that we are upfront and open with our pricing. Your Design Manager will ask you a few simple questions to determine the scope of your project and budget, and then he will give you a quick no obligation quote in as little as 20 minutes.

We are consistently hundreds to even thousands of dollars lower than comparable size and quality of kits. For the quality of our kits, you will be hard-pressed to find a better overall value, as affirmed by our 5-star customer reviews on all third party review sites. Learn more about our pricing.

We will build and ship your kit anywhere in the Continental United States or Canada. All timber pergola kits are build to order, and they typically take 1-2 weeks to build after you approve your final design. Afterwards, we ship your kit via freight carrier directly to you. Shipping typically takes 4-7 days.

All kits are pre-cut, pre-fit and ready to be assembled. We make it easy for you to install your own kit.

We can also provide installation in select areas, or we can help find an experienced contractor near you.

  • Contact us for additional details (877) 870-8755 (9 am – 5 pm MST)

All kits are made from #1 Appearance Grade A Douglas Fir That is Free of Heart.

  • Free of heart minimizes checking (cracking in the wood)
  • Long Lasting Douglas Fir
  • Beautiful Rustic Timber
  • Renewable, Environmentally Friendly, SFI Certified.

Note: We also can also offer cedar. Contact us for details.

We don’t sell cookie cutter kits that you can buy in your average big box store. All of our kits are custom built to match your projects requirements and to fit your back yard. We call our pergolas and pavilions a kit, because they are shipped to your door ready to assemble. But due to the heavy timbers, and their custom nature they will not look like a kit. Your pergola will be an outstanding hand crafted addition to your backyard.

Your Design Manager will make sure your outdoor living needs are met. Your Design Manager will spearhead your project and ensure that it is aesthetically pleasing and structurally sound. They will make sure that the design is within your budget and time constraints.


A Design Manager is your liaison to represent your project goals to our Architects, and Timberwright Craftsmen.

Your Design Manager can also work to create a 3D rendering of your project before production. No guess work; you will know exactly what your backyard resort will look like before it is created. They will guide you step-by-step from design, measuring your yard, and getting your kit built and shipped.
