Mike Jenson, the Design Manager for this outdoor living retreat said, “This is one of the largest projects I’ve been a part of. Bill, our ShadeScape® owner installed the metal roof himself and installed the entire project with him and his wife, Jennifer.”

They saw us at the Home & Garden Show in Sandy and loved the pergola and pavilion kits. Now, a few weeks later, look at what they were able to accomplish together: their own private backyard retreat.

• 2 large oversized pergolas
• 1 attached pavilion
• 2-tone ceiling
• metal roof

It isn’t just that there are three structures but it is all the extra details that were included, such as a FullWrap® roof. The end profile style wraps around the corners.

It doesn’t take much more effort to install but because it looks like it does, it can detour some into thinking they don’t know if they could really install it themselves.

This is why when I received these pictures today, I was elated to show off what you really can do yourself, with a buddy, or as in this case, a husband and wife. They go together – much like ‘Lincoln Logs’ – the toy some of us played with as kids and it can be just as fun.

*THE DOVETAIL DIFFERENCE®: **Western Timber Frame™ kits feature an award-winning Dovetail System.* This innovative design creates very strong rigid corners that will not separate. Over time as the timbers expand and contract with the changing seasons, these dynamic joints maintain their close-fitting connection, significantly reducing twisting, warping and gapping. The Dovetail Difference® makes install fast and easy!

Check out the rest of the pictures from Bill and Jennifer. Beautiful work from a perfect team, thank you both for the pictures!
