Pergola rebuild

Project by rrdesigns posted 01-01-2011 06:09 PM 2148 views 0 times favorited 3 comments Add to Favorites Watch

This was a rebuild for a rotted pergola. We used the same design with a few improvements. The original design had the posts buried in the soil, which of course rotted them out. We filled the post holes with concrete, added Simpson post bases and installed the new posts above ground with a decorative cover to hide the bases.

That came out looking real nice, great job and smart move to get the post above ground.
