Looking for pergola plans? Well, we have just what you need right here. Take our survey at the link below and we will send you a one free.
Free? Yes, free!
Now, what can you expect from free plans? Yes, there are some other places where you can find a similar offer. But will those other places also teach you how to adapt those plans for your own personal dimensions and variations on design?
If you are already quite confident in your woodworking and DIY skills, then the free drawing will be all you need.
Free pergola plans are typically limited to just being a set of drawings with dimensions for that particular design. There are some pergola blueprints that you can buy too. Those tend to be of more value because they also include a shopping list for all the material and hardware pieces and a step by step guide on how to build everything. Some of these will charge you per plan – so if you are still not yet sure which size or shape you want, or if you want it attached or detached, you will have buy every possible set.
The guide and the plans that we sell can be used by anyone no matter what size or type or pergola you want to build. We show the different methods for how to secure your posts to various surfaces. You will only have to buy one guide – not several!
That’s because we will teach you how to adapt everything yourself.
For example – let’s say you have in your hands a set of plans for a detached or free standing 8×10 pergola. But, you need to build an attached pergola. The detached material list calls for rafter pieces that are 10 ft long since each fancy cut edge has a 1ft overhang. Just change those 10ft double fancy edge cut pieces, to 9ft rafters with one end left with a clean, flat edge to attached it to the ledger board on the side of the house. Obviously instead of 4 posts you just need 2.
Voila! You are on your way to re-drawing a set of plans to meet your own needs!
