Today, we’re going to take a look at a different type of hexagonal pavilion, which has a very different appearance to the Victory Pavilion we reviewed a couple of days ago.

The Charleston Pavilion comes in two main designs – double roof, as you can see here, and single roof, which we’ll come to in a moment.

Our first thought, on seeing the Charleston Pavilion, was that it looks a bit like a giant crab (but without the pincers, of course) – but we won’t hold that against it.

The Charleston comes in just six sizes, starting at 20 x 20 ft, and going up to 45 x 45 ft, so this is not a model for people with a small yard.

If you have big family get-togethers, then they make great places to have outdoor meals, with the bigger models having plenty of room to house tables and chairs so you can sit down for a civilized lunch or dinner.

You could also position your outdoor grill under the canopy too, so you can cook even if the weather’s inclement.

Now, if the double-roof Charleston isn’t exactly your style, let’s take a look at the four single-roof variations:

As you can see, you can create a very different feel, just by choosing different options (which you can customise online).

For comparison purposes, the double-roof pavilion shown at the top of this page is the same size as the single-roof pavilion at the bottom left of the four shown above – they’re both 32 x 32 ft, even though they may look like entirely different pavilions.

All five models are built to the same high standard, and that includes compliance with local building codes, of course.

The roof pitch on all models is 4:12, by default. (For those unfamiliar with the term roof pitch, it simply relates the rise of the roof to its run, so 4:12 indicates that for every 12 feet along the horizontal, it increases 4 feet in height.)

Different pavilions have different roof pitches to allow for both aesthetic appeal and function (e.g. snow load), but most can be customised, if required.

So, whether you need a largish pavilion for your garden, or a really large one for your company or organisation, the Charleston Pavilion has plenty of options, at least one of which is probably ideal for your needs.

Of the five variations shown, we both definitely prefer the double-roofed version – that double roof really makes a big difference to the overall appearance, and it’s certainly a lot more attractive.

    I think the double roof version is much cooler.

    I prefer the Victory Pavilions but this are probably much more convenient for celebrating large events! Very nice too!

  3. Hi Rae and Mark,

    This is fabulous. Indeed, for the folks with significant acreage, this is a marvelous addition and I like the practical protection it provides rain coverage, so useful in many areas of the United States and the UK which get the inclimate weather you cited.

  4. Very nice looking! and so elegantly practical!

    You know they remind me of some of the homes I saw on some of the hot and humid south Pacific islands…. So owners can add an island flavor to their surroundings if they feel it is appropriate!

    As soon as I looked at picture I thought to myself that this looks just like the pavillion in a park near my home.

    Then, in your text you said the same thing.

    Very interesting look for a larger yard.
