My husband and I have been doing the same as you did, looking at various plans and kits for pergolas. 16'X16' (2X10 Series) Western Red Cedar Pergola as seen at The 2011 Chicago Flower & Garden Show. Elizabeth, the boards we used are 12 x 12 so the pergola is 10 x 10 size to allow a little overlap on the sides. So here are the steps that we took to build the pergola plus a few little extras that we did to snazz our structure up a bit. Our house already had a Pergola when we moved in but a few weeks ago my husband and I put the sun shades on it.


Our pergola is a free standing unit but you can build one that is attached to a deck or house very easily. I’ve been wanting to build a pergola since last summer, but had only ever found one other post about it.
We decided to try and give the pergola a little more of a custom look by adding boxes to the base.
The sun is brutal here on the gulf coast of central FL, but buying a pergola is SO expensive. To get a taut finish for the tarp and to ensure it didn’t wind up blowing off the pergola and into the pool, we screwed the tarp into the top of the frame with screws and washers.


And if you have some more advanced skills and tools, there is a really professional quality large pergola tutorial here with video and detailed plans.
