gazebo they've co-designed. No matter. Even when you pay someone else to
construct your gazebo, a Summerwood gazebo kit remains unbeatable value.
There are contractors in your area we know who could build it for you. This

your contractor will have a quote in no time. It's much faster (and better), then trying to have someone locally build it for you from scratch.

you'll use it and why. Will your gazebo be your urban haven, tucked out of sight? Or
maybe you want a patio gazebo. Consider where the sun will
be in the sky at the times you use your gazebo the most.

patio slabs, held steady by crushed stone, are an effective and inexpensive
alternative. We offer several suggestions for

for structures under 100 to 110 sq. ft. Be sure to investigate with your
local permit office to be on the safe side. This list of

Choosing your gazebo style is important, but there are a
few other considerations. First you'll want to think of placement. Will the

people call that a spa or hot tub gazebo.) If you're elevating it, are there
to be stairs and how do you picture them? What sort of skirting covers the
space between the ground and floor? These
gazebo tips and ideas, which we've collected over time, will
help you feel confident in your decisions.
