What Victorian 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 Victorian by 2’ to give extra room for 2 more adults. (i.e. 10’ gazebo holds 4 adults).


Level of Difficulty:

Though the Victorian garden 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 Victorian being assembled.

Roof Assembly

The Victorian garden gazebo roof increases in complexity as the size increases, below is the roof framing for the 12' Victorian without the cupola. For smaller sizes, the size and number of components incorporated in the roof structure are reduced.

Floor Framing

Summerwood’s gazebo floors are built in 8 sections that are fastened together to form the octagonal footprint. The dimension “A” on the figure below references back to the Victorian Garden Gazebo Dimensions Chart above.

Floor sections of a Victorian gazebo


The construction of the cupola is a scaled down version of the construction of the Victorian gazebo kit. The wall panels feature pickets and glazing like the top spandrel of the main structures walls, and the roof assembly consists of hip rafters supporting roof boards and cedar shingles. The cupola is finished at the point with a top cone, and optional decorative ball.
