What Tattle Creek gazebo size should I get?

Depending on the usage, a good rule of thumb to follow is to accommodate a few chairs and a patio table inside the structure. Our smallest gazebo (8’) will comfortably accommodate 2 adults. If you need more space, increase the size of your Tattle Creek by 2’ to give extra room for 2 more adults. (i.e. 10’ gazebo holds 4 adults).


Level of Difficulty:

Though the Tattle Creek cedar gazebo building requires some carpentry skills, it’s a great DIY construction project. Our gazebo kits include easy-to-follow instructions, diagrams, and assembly videos that will help you through the process. Below is a series of photos showing one of our San Cristobal cedar garden gazebos being assembled.
