Although this first item is technically known as a pergola, it’s also often referred to these days as an outdoor room, and in this case, as you will see, it’s being used as a dining room.
So, let’s set the scene.
Just imagine, it’s your wedding anniversary, and you’ve prepared a special surprise for your wife.
As she comes downstairs, looking gorgeous in her best black dress, expecting to go out for a romantic anniversary meal, you take her, instead – to your patio.
It’s a warm, still evening, with the sounds of crickets chirruping in the distance, and dusk is falling.
The musicians you’ve hired begin to play some classical Spanish guitar (you’ll have to click the Audio MP3 icon, below, to enjoy this yourself):
You lead her to the candle-lit dining table that has been set up under your pergola, pull her chair back for her as she takes her seat, and then you join her, to start your anniversary meal.
While you could have cooked it yourself, you chose, instead, to hire some professional caterers, as you wanted to make sure everything was just perfect.
After an aperitif of Cava, accompanied by tapas, the charming waitress delivers course after course of traditional Spanish fare, with wines such as Verdejo and Rioja to complement each one, until, dessert finished, you sit and talk awhile, before gently taking your beautiful wife by the hand and going for a slow dance until the dark blue of the dusk is replaced by the pitch black of night, and it’s time to retire indoors.
We’re sure you’ll agree that a romantic dinner under this stunning, treated pine pergola, would be a great way to celebrate not only your anniversary, but any special occasion, whether it’s just the two of you, or whether you have friends round for dinner.
The great thing about this particular pergola is that, apart from looking very classy, of course, there are sizes to suit almost every patio – 25 different sizes, in fact, ranging from a modest 8 x 8 ft, all the way up to 16 x 32 ft. (The one shown above is 10 x 10ft.)
We hate to ruin the vision we’ve just created, but you do need to know that this Treated Pine Deluxe 4-Beam Pergola comes in an easy-to-assemble kit.
It’s made from treated Southern Yellow Pine, and the solid 4-beam design has laminated posts with stainless steel brackets.
Another option is this Treated Pine Deluxe 4-Beam PergolaTreated Pine 2-Beam Pergola.
It is available in all the same sizes as the 4-beam model described above, but you have the option with this model of going for a free-standing or wall-mounted version.
So, you could position it somewhere away from your house, like the one above, or you could use as an extension to the house, as shown here.
Once again, it does come as a kit – it arrives in a weather-proof crate, to protect it from the elements, detailed instructions are, of course, included, and if you do have any questions or problems, a Project Advisor, who is there to help you, is only a phone call away.
