Inspired by a 7th Century Anglo-Saxon hall, this garden pergola is framed entirely in white oak heartwood. The overall dimensions are nearly the same as the English greenhouse that stands immediately to the east. This structure measures 13′-0 x 26′-0 and features a gabled transverse passage through it’s mid-section. The frame was raised by hand in a single day with the help of the general contractor’s crew. This framework will remain fully exposed, for now. However, it was built to accommodate a future roof covering, should the owners be so inclined.
This project was in cooperation with Hoar Construction Company of Burton, Ohio https://www.hoarconstructionco.com/residential-gallery/pergolaingatesmills
Treówgeweorc is Anglo-Saxon and translates as “structure of wood”.
