Pergola from scratch

6 tools

Wanted to buy but too pricey for my budget, decided to build from scratch. Watched video on how to. Started with a diagram, purchased materials, marked the position for the four columns with stakes and string, had to pull out pavers to dig down 3ft for each column, prepped holes and set the wood in with cement, cut out wood for interlocking the rooftop, checked to make sure it was leveled, nailed and bolted with the help from my buddy. Added lights and plants. Took all my physical strength and two weekends to complete this project but it was well worth it.
