Timber Frame Cabana Kit
This 16′ x 24′ timber frame Cabana took about 12 hours to install. The pavers and fireplace were added after. The mini wooden barn doors cover an outdoor television and below is a gas fireplace that changes colors, from red, blue, green, orange to yellow for a delightful night ambience.
“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
“It’s funny because the ceiling does feel higher but it is not a super high pitched roof. It is more of a flatter roof style so that it didn’t block our views when we are on our upper deck. When you are in here it still feels high and spacious and still has a good pitch.”- Megan Harbertson – UT
The hipped roof Cabana was previously on display for Polynesian Days at the Thanksgiving Point with a grass roof.
In times past when it started raining everyone went home. Megan said this year when it rained everyone just gathered under the Cabana and continued their party, “It was great fun. Everyone really enjoys themselves here.”
“The teenagers used it all summer. They used it more that we did. They loved it, and it is funny how people congregate under here while they are swimming. But then they are still gathering mostly over here, this became a favorite hangout spot.. – Megan Harbertson – UT
The hipped roof is finished underneath in a beautiful Rich Cordoba stain contrasting the custom light stained Cabana timbers.
“Another thing we were able to do with Western Timber is they put electrical in. And you can decide where you want it and how much you want. You can have all sorts of options. We have light switches, and electricity, and charging stations. So that don’t have to go inside if we have to charge our phone or can plug in lights. And so we could have you know they can program it or wire it so that you can put a fan in if you want a fan out here as well. So the options are endless with electrical stuff.” – Megan Harbertson – UT

“It is so nice to have permanent shade. For a lot of years we had an umbrella and when a big wind gust would come the umbrella would tip over and everyone would run for shade under a tree. It is surprising how many people congregate under the pavilion all summer long. It is nice. As it has got cooler at night, we have enjoyed sitting out here with a cover.” – Megan Harbertson – UT
