Finding yourself with a lot of room in your backyard and not sure what to do with it? Looking for a place where family and friends can comfortably spend time together? A pergola might just be the what your backyard is missing and you can even build it yourself with this tutorial by Lauren and her husband, Brett, at the Little White House Blog. This couple is in the process of restoring and transforming their 100-year-old farmhouse in Alabama.
A pergola is similar to a gazebo but with a roof. The sitting area is typically shaded by wooden posts and a cross section of beams. Instead of adding an actual wooden roof, people often add vines or other plants to complete the roof.
In the article below, Lauren and Brett walk you through their step-by-step process full with images and where you can purchase the right materials to make your very own pergola with a fire pit, swings, and serving area.
