Second Backyard Pavilion Inspiration
I came across this pavilion on the RealCedar.com site and I'm posting it here so I can later reference it when the time comes to think about such a structure in our #newoldbackyard. Those of you who have been following along for years might recall that we had a pavilion at our old place. All the way back in April of 2010, I posted the original inspiration photo here on the blog. That one was anchored off a structure (garage in our case) and came to life over a series of posts.
The one you see above has some modern touches - like the horizontal slats, lights and some of the flat cuts - and is unanchored to another structure. The slats remind me a lot of the raised bed planters that I posted about over the weekend. The simple, single-plane roof is interesting to me in that it requires less framing work.
The #newoldbackyard is much bigger than our old one, so we have space to do a few things. Pizza oven. Greenhouse. Sports court. Vegetable garden. Swingset. Lots of ideas. Not sure how many fit. Just a matter of getting a proper plan in place before acting to ensure we get it right from the start.
