Default Weekend pergola project

A couple of weeks ago we had one of my buddies come and pour a new patio slab at our house. My wife, myself and a couple other friends started this Pergola/patio cover Friday afternoon. We worked pretty late Friday and Saturday, then finished this morning around noon. Those big timbers are heavy!! Need to add a gutter and some lights but got a lot done for 2 days of work on the cover. Donít mind the dirty rub mark from our labs before we poured the concrete.

Looks great. I like the idea of not tying in to existing roof.

Yes, but that could be a good thing as well.

Especially since that roof is only 3 months old.

Looks great! Is that just treated lumber or something else? Also where is the mounting hardware from? Thanks for sharing . Iíve been wanting to build this very thing.

Where did the hardware come from? Specifically the angle pieces and footing? Looks great and exactly what I want to build.

All of the hardware is from OZCO, its the lardeo sunset ornamental iron. I ordered everything from Home Depot as they had the best prices shipped. I had to search some items on their site, but they had everything needed. OZCO has plans on their site that gives pretty detailed lists of whats needed. I just looked at what was required and added some parts as needed to get the look we wanted. Decks direct has kits as well, but I found it easier to just order what we wanted than get a kit and have to add items to it as it drove the price up quite a bit. Links below for resources I used. It was a fun project and lots of work.

The timbers are treated 6x6, with treated 2x8x20 runners, the other lumber is just yellow pine for the rafters and roof ties, all of it will get a water/uv seal at some point just for a little extra protection.

The roof tin is 16ft, and has a 2.5 ish slope, we ripped 2x8x16 down to a 2x6x16 at one end, and the concrete has a 1/2 slope, timber were cut at 9ft, it should shed water fairly well.

Thanks

Looks great. But excuse my ignorance. I don’t see gutters in the pic so why not tie it to the roof? Or do you just not plan on using it during the rain?

He would have to lower the height of the pergola to tie it to the facia or spend a bunch of money tying it into the roof at the height it is now.
Lowering the height and tying it into the facia would create problems down the road.

We didn't tie to the roof because we just had it redone and didn't want warranty issues later. There will be a gutter installed soon, there is six inches of a gap between the vertical timbers and the fascia, haven't decided between seamless gutter or just doing it myself for now. There will also be a couple of fans installed so it needed to be higher than the roof line would allow and the ceiling in the living room on the other side of the wall has a vaulted ceiling, it would have required a bit extra for the weight support to get into the rafter and tie in.

Shade is critical in the Texas summer... Awesome job! And adding the fans is going to make it even better.

Looks awesome, well done.

Just to clarify, the labs rub on the brick?

How bad is the heat off a tin roof like that in the summer in full sun? I want to do this myself but am afraid it’s going to be so hot under there you don’t want to be under it.

Shouldnít be to bad, will have fans moving air around. Our cabin in the country is built similar, with fans running itís not to bad at all. Plus any little bit of a breeze blows it swirls around back there pretty good. We were going to put white colored tin up but decided on just galvanized for this.
