DIMENSIONS & DRAWINGS
We can customize our gazebos to suit your needs. Just tell us what size and what options you want. Prior to building any Gazebo, we provide our customers with a detailed drawing based on their proposed features. This lets you review any choices made and make the needed adjustments before we begin building. Drawings are a great way to make certain that every detail has been considered so that your Gazebo will be exactly what you dreamed of.

Interior walls are tongue and groove Douglas-fir and the interior ceiling is also made of tongue and groove Douglas-fir. The total height of the walls are 7 feet, but can be custom-sized if necessary.
The cupola roof makes your gazebo more spacious and the clerestory windows add beautiful lighting. Standard roof overhang is twelve inches. Choose from our standard roof of 1 x 6 redwood boards or shingles. If you want to order shingles (extra charge), ours are 3/8-inch thick, hand-cut redwood that are four to six inches wide. You will receive 1000 to 3000 single shingles depending on the size of your gazebo (shingles cannot ship attached to roof panels and must be installed individually). We will not charge any extra shipping when you order the shingles for your Dream Gazebo.

Our White Glove Assembly is a complete onsite assembly and anchoring service. The cost varies between 25 - 35% of your structure's overall cost and includes all materials: footings work, concrete, equipment rental if needed, and standard roofing materials if needed. Our installation teams are now available in all 50 states!
DIY: For moderately-sized structures (up to 400 sqft.), some of our customers choose to save money by doing the assembly themselves. In general, the larger the structure, the more people and time you will need: we recommend a minimum of 3 people. If you have assembly questions, just give us a call!
Care: You should expect your furniture to last outside for a minimum of 10-40 years without maintenance, even in climates with harsh year-round conditions. Because of our high quality wood, the silver patina that will naturally occur is surface deep (less than 1/64") and is not indicative of decay. We keep our display items without refinishing as examples show off their natural aging. We like the patina! If you’d like to keep your set looking its best for decades please visit: Care and Finish.
