Deck ID: H105593
This project is a retro-fit pergola project in Rochester, NY (Farmington). The homeowners built the deck a few years back, but have found that the space is receiving too much sun. The underlying project details are simple enough, pressure treated (PT) construction followed up by an oil-based stain. Rather than using standard pergola construction of stacked 2x material, we constructed box beams in order to give the structure a "heavier" appearance. We'll also be adding additional perlins to the top for increased shade. Finally, the spacing and thickness of the box beams has been adjusted so that the homeowners can add an in-line shade system down the road if they ultimately choose to do so.
