I have always admired the regal look of a pergola. I’m not sure where the pergola originated, but they look lovely when they are covered with vines. I have dreamed of having one on my back patio for such a long time, but I thought the price point was out of my range. I saw this awesome video tutorial by Glenn Frazzee on Youtube and realized my dream may be doable. I will need a little help doing this, but good Lord willing and the creek don’t rise, I may be able to make this gorgeous pergola.

I just love this back patio pergola and cannot wait to get one started. This tutorial looks really straight forward and won’t cost us a whole lot to make. I have looked at pergolas to buy, but they are about one thousand to two thousand dollars and that is a bit out of my price range. The more I look at this though, the easier it seems to me. There is a handyman who lives down the street and I think he will help me build this.
