The gazebo, comfortable and beautiful


There are people so passionate about DIY that the gazebo, they want to build it themselves. Perhaps it is also true that to build a gazebo, it takes time that is not always available and it is also true that on balance, the gazebo should be purchased because the amount that is going to be spent to build it alone is the same as he wants to buy it but ... it wouldn't be the same thing. Fans of the art of DIY, most of the time, love to prepare objects by themselves not to save money but for the simple pleasure of making something from their own hands but above all born of their inspiration and their inventiveness. In any case, the gazebo is an excellent add-on to the garden which not only furnishes but gives the opportunity to those who possess it, to spend pleasant evenings with friends enjoying the coolness of the evening air and savoring grilled specialties. In short, if you also own a small garden, you can try your hand at build a gazebo with the art of DIY.

What are the rules for making the gazebo



We have seen that the gazebo helps to furnish any garden and becomes a nice and pleasant piece of furniture that brings friends closer and allows them to spend pleasant evenings in the company, playing cards, talking or enjoying barbecued food on a barbecue. it is a piece of furniture for the garden. The gazebo can be of three shapes, circular, rectangular and square. Its size essentially depends on the size of the green area in which it will be set up. Obviously before creating it, you must necessarily evaluate well the measures of the structure that you are going to realize because even a small measurement mistake, could cause you to touch under a balcony or go to end up right on the branches of a tree. Of course, if your garden is really big, these problems do not exist at all. Usually the gazebo, whether circular, square or rectangular, has a solid wooden structure even if it is made of metal structures. The gazebo that still remains the most beautiful and the most requested, is the one made entirely of wood that is usually made of fir, beech or chestnut. Without taking anything away from the very romantic metal gazebo, the wooden one remains the most used, the most built by enthusiasts because of a sense of warmth, a sense of familiarity. It is also destined to last over time although, it must be said, it needs at least annual maintenance if it is to be kept in an optimal state. After deciding where to locate the gazebo, you need to think about how to anchor it to the ground. Check the ground where you are going to place it and see if it is soft. In that case, get enough sturdy uprights like those used to mount a camping tent. Naturally the uprights must be long equal to the part to be buried. Keep in mind that if the soil is concrete and it is a courtyard but not a garden with soil, the structure cannot be anchored unless permission is requested from the municipality first. You will anchor the poles with a poured cement.

What materials to use for the construction of the gazebo



First, get a polycarbonate sheet to the extent that you have decided to create your gazebo. The latter is usually 2.60 cm tall regardless of the shape you want to give it. Ensure a sloping position to allow rainwater to drain. The walls of the gazebo will always be closed with polycarbonate sheets, starting from 50 centimeters to 150 centimeters from the ground, as you prefer. The polycarbonate sheets, in this case, will be transparent and of the color you want. We must necessarily put them, for any gusts of wind and air currents arriving from the outside. At a building materials store, purchase cement mortar and bolts with round heads, to fix the beams. As tools, you will use metric wheels, trowel, spades, mason's buckets, professional drill, saw, hammer, wrench and iron ladder.

How to build the gazebo



Begin to delimit the gazebo with the metric wheel. Prepare four holes about 50 centimeters deep to secure the structure. Help yourself with a pickaxe if the ground is particularly hard and put a layer of gravel in the holes. In the mason's bucket, mix the mortar (there is also the premixed one). Place the four poles that will support the structure, in the holes. Use a level to see if all four are perfectly straight. With wooden pegs, fix them better to the ground. Make the cement mortar casting and wait for 36 hours, until the poles are completely fixed in the ground. The beams that will support the roof are fixed to the ends of the poles. The beams must be fixed with bolts with round heads, after having made the holes on the beams. These must be set at about 80 centimeters apart from each other. Always with the usual bolts, fix the polycarbonate panels to the beams. Finally, assemble the polycarbonate side panels. The gazebo is ready for use.

DIY Gazebo: How to furnish a gazebo


Once your gazebo is ready, all you have to do is furnish it. This happens only with your taste. You can opt for wicker chairs with white cushions and a table of the same material. Instead, you can buy a resin table with four more chairs. Finally, you can put chairs and a very romantic wrought iron table in the gazebo. Naturally the larger the gazebo, the more you can furnish it with other elements. You can even let in the gazebo, an outdoor kitchen complete with sink and pot holder. The modern garden kitchens, are extremely functional and allow you to have available, not only the hob but also a very comfortable top where you can put the dishes, pots, lids and all the accessories you need for cooking. This can happen after a plumber has connected the sink to the water system. The kitchen can be fed with a gas cylinder or through the methane gas of the house through the intervention of the dispensing company that through a special pipe, will connect you to the user. You can also put a chandelier and then have the electricity through wires that an electrician will connect to the electrical system.
You can also spend pleasant evenings with friends and feel gratified for the work you have just accomplished.
