Walls envelope and enclose a space, provide shade, shelter, security and privacy.
Giving the backyard patio some covering will extend the square footage of a home. The extra outdoor room gives a relaxed family atmosphere for activities such as cooking, dining and good conversations.
The intricate elegance and beauty of lattices are a popular design in outdoor shade structures. Next to a pool, over the patio or part of a garden, solid wood lattice work can define a space, give more privacy while providing wonderful additional shade. Climbing vines and vegetables can also be grown up over the lattice work. Sometimes lattices are used to display outdoor art and decorations.
These heavy-duty, solid wood lattice works from Western Timber Frame™ are far superior to any of the wooden lattices found in the big box stores. They are thicker, heavier and so much stronger. It adds an awesome ambience of high-quality, custom old world craftsmanship, because that is just what it is.

Connie, our homeowner, said this was her exact dream, just the way she pictured it, but is amazed at how heavy-duty it all is. This is now the family’s favorite gathering place.
After what Connie calls her “Gavilion” was to be installed, she asked her Design Consultant if they could also do a porch for her to match. Like the Pavilion-Gazebo ShadeScape®, the timber frame deck has integrated TimberVolt® Power Posts as well as a service ramp.

Latticed Trellis w/Color Changing Lights & Fire
The giggle of a child naturally fills the world with sunshine. When you become a grandparent you get to drink from the “fountain of youth” in pure, unfettered happiness. Eric is every child’s vision of the best Grandpa ever. He envisioned his backyard specifically to delight his grandchildren.
The latticed timber frame trellis has metal cladding for aesthetics only as the timbers are connected with old-world dovetailed joints without the use of unsightly hardware. Architectural structures built with this technique have endured beautifully for hundreds of years.
The trellis has the Drill for Power and TimberVolt®, prewired and ready-to-go, to accommodate any and all of the family’s outdoor electrical and lighting needs. The family installed colored lights that changed from red, white, blue and green. Eric’s backyard delights not only his grandchildren but anyone who has the pleasure of visiting with him there.

Pergola Outdoor Dining Area
Pergola Covered Deck w/Privacy Walls for Hot Tub
The best way to enjoy the spectacular mountaintop view of Utah Valley from home —a comfortable deck sheltered with a timber frame pergola.
Today’s featured #DIYPergola kit is an 8000 Series ShadeScape® with latticed privacy walls and deck providing a spacious and comfortable outdoor room. Each latticed #PrivacyWall provides additional shade around the hot tub. Like many outdoor living spaces, the plans for this #CoveredDeck is still in process. Scott and his wife have a few more ideas. They intend on adding a fireplace at the end of the deck next to the #CoveredHotTub area. An outdoor television will eventually hang in the corner able to be watched from both the dining room and hot tub.
Breathing the clean, refreshing air with the quiet and peaceful solemnity of this covered deck, I am sure even the Swiss Alps cannot beat. Travel is only footsteps away for our homeowners to enjoy it any and every day.

8000 Series ShadeScape® DIY Pergola Kit

Located in Lehi, Utah, this beautiful Early American timber frame 8000 Series ShadeScape® DIY pergola kit from Western Timber Frame turned the corner of this backyard into a place for the whole family to gather while providing more privacy from the neighbors.

The above ShadeScape® Series timber frame trellis has a Cove style beam and rafter end profile and is finished in the premium, high-grade, UV protective Black wood stain. The heavy-duty lattice work creates a fantastic privacy screen, beautifully screening the view from the neighbors without blocking the light. As can be seen, trellises work wonders to create an outdoor room or define a space, create a boundary, enclosure or outdoor wall for small or large areas in almost any backyard. An outdoor wall also gives a backyard an indoor secluded feel of security.
Ebony Pergola w/Privacy Walls for Hot Tub
Privacy walls are good windbreakers. You also reap the benefits of an aesthetically pleasing appeal, more shade, and extra protection from prying eyes, so you can comfortably grill, sunbath in a hot tub, and enjoy time with family.
The ShadeScape® Kit is finished in an elegant Ebony stain. Rich Black Ebony is a stunningly bold, eye-catching color that people love but do not consider as a practical option because black absorbs light and converts it to heat. There are many other things that factor into the basic physics and biology of how warm someone feels on a particular day. Humidity and wind are two examples. Timber is nature’s best temperature regulator for human comfort. It can hold two temperatures at the same time on either side. While it is warm to the touch one side, it is refreshingly cool on the other. If you love the look of black, an Ebony stained ShadeScape® will keep you just as cool as any of the beautiful selection of stain color choices.
Thank you, to our ShadeScape® family. Seeing the completed projects in pictures is a lot of fun to see.

Privacy From Above Views
A roof not only adds protection but can also provide privacy —in some settings— from surrounding views that look down into your yard.
Adding Walls to Pavilion for Sunroom
One example of enclosing a ShadeScape® shelter with walls is from the Kinghorn family. They ordered a 3 Gable DIY Pavilion Kit to build their stunning new Sunroom. A DIY Pavilion Kit is a winning way to build a sunroom as the entire frame structure with roof, in most cases, installs in as little as one afternoon.
A sunroom or solarium is a fully enclosed place caressed in warmth and sunlight. A Sunroom is in some circles, called a Go-to-room, Patio Room, Conservatory, Sun Parlor, Sunporch, Sun Lounge, Garden Room, Winter Garden Room, or Florida Room. It often has a “knee wall” framed in with transparent glass. A sunroom can be freestanding, attached, or as in this featured DIY pavilion plan, integrated into the primary residence.
