Today, we’re going to take the first of several looks at some pavilions, which, if you remember from our article about the difference between gazebos and pergolas, etc., are primarily associated with pleasure and relaxation.
However, in our opinion, the best way to describe the type of pavilion shown here is as a gazebo without the walls.
One of the features that makes this pavilion different is its curved wood roof, which you don’t usually find and which gives it a very elegant and oriental appearance.
Internally, the roof decking boards are made of 2″ x 8″ tongue and groove out of top quality Southern Yellow Pine. Each board is cut to fit exactly with the other boards before being kiln dried, and finally, it’s furnished in specified lengths. The underside of the decking boards can be left natural, or either the factory or customer can stain it.
The Victory Pavilion comes in seven different sizes, ranging from 14 x14 ft up to a fairly large 45 x 45 ft, so whatever your needs, you’ll find a size that’s just right for you.
The pavilion shown above is a 16 x 16 ft version, which is the second smallest they make.
There are several configuration options available, other than just the size, as you can see from the following two photos:

Three Bench Sections

With Steel Columns
As you will have noticed, the different options give a very different look to your pavilion, depending on what you’re after (but note that the tables shown above are not included).
All of the models shown on this page have asphalt shingles, while the wooden columns are made from glued and laminated treated Southern Yellow Pine. These columns are designed and constructed to resist both warping and twisting. Although the columns are 12 ft long, you need to bury 4 ft into the concrete foundation, which leaves an out-of-ground height of 8 ft.
If you live somewhere with unusually bad weather, then you should be reassured to know that the standard structures are engineered to withstand winds of up to 100 mph, and snow loads of up to 30 psf.
On top of that, each structure is researched very carefully to make sure that it adheres to (and even exceeds, in some cases) whatever local building codes apply where you live.
So, whether you’re looking for a quiet spot at the bottom of your garden to get away from it all, or a larger structure for some sort of special function, the hexagonal Victory Pavilion offers you a combination of beauty, elegance, functionality and strength for every occasion.
