"WOW!" That was the first thing that presented itself to my mind when I saw these pictures of this gorgeous, white oversized pergola from Design Manager Tyler Jenson. The white stain just finished off the backyard beautifull matching the trim of the house.
This is a freestanding, Douglas-fir, 16' x 32' timber frame DIY pergola kit with a footprint of 14' x 30'. It features a TimberVolt™ power post, Roosevelt style beam & rafter end profiles, Classic and full arched knee braces with decorative keystones and finished in a premium high-grade UV protective White timber stain.
For swimming pool lovers, shade lets you play outside longer. This Highland homeowner opted for 10x10 posts. Western Timber Frame™ is most famous for its massive oversized posts. Looking at them in pictures is one thing but standing up next to one gives me a true feeling of "awe" that only a Douglas-fir can grow this large and this incredibly strong. Even with the stain, touching the natural wood, I feel like a kid with the joy of just toughing a tree.
The homeowners also chose Western Timber Frame™ TimberVolt™ Dragon Power post. It is fascinating how the post is manufactured. A hole is drilled through the entire length of the long post. It requires a great deal of skill from an experienced timber wright craftsman and requires highly specialized proprietary equipment to "drill a hole" through the entire length of a heavy timber post. Having power really can maximize your family’s backyard living experience. I would love to see some photos of this beautiful pergola lit up at night.
