Question Need Mechanicals

I have a picture of a gazebo that I would like to build. But, I am no good at figuring out the lengths and cuts and all that jazz. Do I need an engineer to draw up plans? Or is there someone who would be able to just look at it and tell me what I need to build it? I didn't think that planning a project stuff was so hard until I spent a very long time and a lot of money building a copper garden arch. Any advice would be gratefully accepted.

Rather than a picture you would do well to search out plans for something similar.
Another way is to look at plans for what you want at a lumber yard and they will include a list of material for the project.

Most big box home centers have a section of books & magazines. I'm sure there is a book full of plans with material lists for gazebos and other outdoor decorative structures.
