Models & Drawings
For pergolas and large custom projects we can provide our customers with two and three dimensional renderings. These aid in visualizing the final structure, thus eliminating any surprises. Below are a few examples of our presentation capabilities.

1. An interesting use of posts and a central arch focuses attention and defines space under a large pergola.
2. Color rendering of a three dimensional model of a pergola attached to a house shows shade projection and overall appearance.
3. Initial concept sketch for a thirty foot columned pergola placed upon brick piers.
4. A pergola set close to a house, with an unusual yet succesful positioning of the columns, strongly defines an outdoor space.
5. A small space, partially enclosed with open lattice panels, creating a "pergola room".
6. Our standard Bedford Pergola, increased to 11 feet x 15 1/2 feet, presented in a three dimensional model.
7. This simple pergola, placed in front of stairs leading to a deck, incorporates asymmetry and a two level superstructure.
8. A large pergola, placed on a stonewall over a courtyard, accommodates an asymmetrical entrance and exit axis. With a clear span of 19 feet, it incorporates many keystoned arches.
9. A model showing spacial relationships within a front porch area includes interesting trellis work in combination with traditional brackets.
10. A large pergola incorporates a special "T rafter" developed for added shade. The purlins are placed every 6 inches for additional shade.
11. A narrow pergola designed to frame and accent a garden area.
12. Example of first draft construction drawings showing details and size relationships of a large formal pergola with 8 inch x 8 inch wood posts and a plinth base.
13. These two drawings, Nos. 13 and 14, depict different solutions for an overhead structure for a side entrance. This solution creates a small sitting area behind the lattice panel.
14. This solution establishes a slightly more grand entry using a symmetrically peaked top and brackets.
