Getting into Gazebo Design

It may not be at the top of your priority list in the dead of winter, but you might want to give a little more thought to building a gazebo. I know spring seems like a distant thought at the moment, but it will be here before you know it. Now is the time to take advantage of the slower construction industry and build your gazebo before contractors are busier and rates have increased. Here are a few ideas for designing your gazebo.

  • The Victorian Gazebo. This elegant design is simple but beautiful. It offers a variation of the standard octagonal design, with little extras such as the scalloped roofing and the lattice.
  • The Entertainment Gazebo. This wide open design is conducive to hours of enjoyable visiting with family and friends. Its spacious capacity allows for a barbeque or benches.
  • The Shade Pavilion. This is a variation of the gazebo in that it includes removable lath panels. The panels provide shade and protection in hot or windy weather and can be removed for the evening hours.
  • The Octagon, the Octagon Pagoda & the Oval. The octagon is the standard shape of gazebos. The octagon pagoda has an extra decorative tier to the standard roof. The oval gazebo provides a bit more elbow room, which is ideal for entertaining.

Gazebos are the ultimate in outdoor living. Their protecting embrace supports hours of enjoyment, whether you are entertaining friends or reading your favorite novel. Gazebos can be basic post and roof structures, or can be gracefully decorated with trims and moldings. Try to choose materials that will require little maintenance such as vinyl and composites. Request free estimates from prescreened contractors in your area to build your gazebo before spring.
