A timber frame awning over a doorway, garage or window adds an aesthetically pleasing touch especially when combined with a timber frame pergola. It also adds some protection from the sun and save some on energy. This 3′ × 8′ timber frame DIY awning kit is constructed from #1 Grade rough sawn SFI Certified* Douglas-fir timbers. Douglas-fir is the number one choice by architects and engineers for structural timbers. It is dimensionally stable and universally recognized for its superior strength and its high density provides excellent nail-and-plate-holding ability.
The dovetailed design is a Western Timber Frame™ patent pending mortise and tenon system called The Dovetail Difference™ for tight joints.
The DIY timber frame awning kit really added a finished look to the whole side of the house.

A freestanding DIY timber frame pergola is a 12′ x 16′ fullsize kit featuring Classic knee braces and two full arched knee braces with decorative keystones, Champion bean and rafter profiles and finished in the premium high-grade UV protective Rich Cordoba stain.
From this side view you can see the Classic knee braces. The two full arched knee braces with decorative keystones are on the other side. This effect is chosen by clients quite often for its artistic interest from varying perspectives.
Having just newly installed the pergola the homeowner has not set up his table set and grill but this will be the family’s outdoor dining and barbecue area.
