Clamp the beams in place, and check that they're level and that the posts are plumb.Then secure each end with four 3-in. If you're not building on a pad, use longer posts and set them in the earth below the frost line.Lay out the post positions and mark the screw locations [1].
The structure is called a pergola, and it's just the thing to bring backyard landscaping to life. Pergolas were common features of Italian Renaissance gardens, often covering walkways or serving as grape arbors.
You will need to cut the wood pieces or vinyl vs getting a ready to be assembled diy pergola kit which doesn't need to be cut but just put together when your ready to set it up. So those are some of the reasons why you may want to decide to go with one of the do it yourself pergola kits.


SANS10400 are the Building regulations in South Africa, and both international and national standards, are fundamental to successful building and construction projects, both big and small. This carefully designed, beautifully constructed wooden pergola looks rather grand and imposing. Note that if a variance of the 144 mm x 69 mm timber specified is used for the upright posts, the groove should match the smaller dimension of the wood.
However, while it is certainly a relatively large-scale project, involving a fair amount of timber, there are no complicated joints, and you won’t need any specialised tools.
Aluminium is not an exeption, my mother sold her house in Howick Natal recently and they made her submit plans for the aluminium shutter roof over her back stoep.
She was told by the aluminium shutter supplier that she did not need plans, this was so wrong as the company might not have got the sale if she had known.


On the other hand plans were required a while ago when a house was sold in KZN and the back verandah had an aluminium louvre shutter covering that could be opened or closed with a lever. Also remember that the dimensions of off-the-shelf rough timber are greater than timber that comes ready planed.
