How to Build a Gazebo

How to Build a Gazebo

Whenever you take a walk in the garden, you should relax and enjoy the natural beauty around you. For this purpose gazebos are built. While walking or jogging in a park, you must have often seen these gazebos that are mostly made in the shape of a hut or a shelter where people can relax and unwind themselves.

It’s not that gazebos can be built only in a park. Gazebos are also constructed in the garden to add to the beauty of the house, giving it a charming look. You can easily build an outdoor garden gazebo where you can spend a solitary evening with your family and friends that will pep up your spirits. Whether you want to dine or celebrate some occasion, a gazebo is the ideal place for any kind of festivity. A gazebo can also help you in extending living space. It serves as an alternative space for not only adults to hang out or barbeque in, but also for children who mostly like to spend their time outside.

So, if you are planning to build a gazebo, you have to be well organized and plan everything in advance so that you don’t end up wasting your time
and energy.


For building a gazebo the foremost thing to do is to chalk out a map. The map for the construction of a gazebo should include the following things:

  • Location of the footings
  • Sheath roof

You can easily get a gazebo plan from a web site. You can either choose a simple and a casual look for the gazebo or an exclusive Victorian look. After deciding on the plan, you should start by getting the materials used to build a gazebo. A special gazebo material kit should include:

  • Screws
  • Fiberglass
  • Building blocks
  • Staples
  • Chop saw
  • Cable
  • Anchors
  • Framing square

After analyzing the location or the area where you want to build a gazebo, frame out an edge that should be a 2×6-roof joist, which is required to be joined together by a screw. Then lift up the joist to the middle, so that each of the joists is attached together. After you have constructed the base, you need to use the patio blocks that must be concealed under the floor joist. Utilize a 13-inch anchor from which you have to bolt the base. Mark the area in the joist from where the anchor cable can pass through so that you can fasten it tightly. Fiberglass is the next material that you should use on the deck plank. Assemble the glass with the help of 2-1/2 screws. Thus, with apt planning and materials, you can easily build a gazebo.

So, get to work immediately and give an artistic touch to your garden by accessorizing it with a gazebo.
