  • finished boards are mounted on the pins are aligned vertically and secured temporary diagonals.

  • propyl done to connect with pillars and they are connected to each other in a half-tree on the edges 40h100 boards.
  • middle of the diagonal ligaments strengthening bars, and its ends are inserted into the cuts pillars.
  • Produced cantrail design.


  • frame roof pergola as 100x100 made of beams and planks for the column 50x100 - for rafters.

  • prepared roof frame mounted on poles.At the same time the central section of the beam has to rely on a bunch intersection and stand vertically, and the rafters 40 cm protrude beyond the frame parameter.Fastening parts takes place by means of nails.
