First the 6 vertical posts were cut to Mr Bewick’s requirements following the guidance. Followed by the 4 horizontal pieces for the frame perimeter. The pieces are then screwed together ensuring everything is square.

Post Holders

Post holders are then installed. In this case, screw-down post holders were utilised as it was going onto a solid level concrete base. We also offer spiked post holders for soft ground installations.

Diagonal support timber was then cut to requirements. These were then secured with screws into the vertical support beams ensuring the structure is square throughout. Then the roof beams were then be cut to size and screwed directly into the top frame of the gazebo ready for the roofing.


The 4 frames for the wall boards were then cut and assembled and secured onto the structure. The wall boards were then cut to size and affixed to the frames. The walls come in either standard Green impregnated timber or in black spray coated at an extra cost. The customer opted for the black coated for more of a bold look.
