two pergolas flank the pool house to create a pair of outdoor rooms. the far pergola houses a casual living room. the second pergola includes a swinging bed hanging from the perlins. raised planting areas create a protected ambience and foster privacy in the pool zone.
pergolas are a freestanding structure usually placed within the landscape. they can cover a pathway and define the walking space, or can cover a patio or entertaining space outdoors. a pergola usually has open sides, and either a slatted or solid roof. patio covers are similar to pergolas, except they are attached to the house. this can be an advantage, because the patio cover can use the home for support and thus may cost less to build than a freestanding structure.
pergolas provide shade and a place to hang potted plants over patios and decks. if you choose to attach your pergola to the house, it must be anchored to the house framing and not the trim, siding or fascia boards. since attaching a pergola to the house framing is a structural change, youll need a building permit in most cases.
a pergola attached to the house was the perfect solution to create an outdoor dining and kitchen area. todays post shares the diy pergola build. we wanted to share our patio pergola project in september.
