STEP BY STEP ASSEMBLING A LUMBER PERGOLA
This sequence shows the construction of a pressure-treated, laminated lumber pergola at the Intercontinental Hotel, Aphrodite Hills Resort in Cyprus. To achieve the uninterrupted, approximately 18 ft clear span in the dining area, glue-laminated lumber beams and rafters were prefabricated to facilitate quick assembly. Concrete piers were necessary because of the heavy loads. The woven reed matting shadescreen is periodically replaced.
