Pergola Roof
Works Well.

You want the pergola roof  in any small garden to match in. These pergola photos show the small size timbers to use.

We now have four perfectly upright posts just cut to a size where the tops are all level. Make two notches on the right hand pergola posts to take the small pergola beam. And repeat for the left hand side. The beams over hang each post by 12”. Shape the ends of the beams and nail each beam into place.

Now cut and shape the five pergola rafters so they overhang the beams by 12”. Equally space them across the beams. For a tight fit it’s best to notch out each pergola rafter to sit snugly on top of the beams.

Another way to you can attach the pergola rafters is make half joints on the rafters and the cross beams. We used this on the house pergola and it gives a nice strong joint and clean finish.
