Navigation: There is a 'table of contents' at the bottom of every page. You can jump to any page from there.
The entire gazebo is constructed out of rough sawn (not dressed) lumber, which in most parts is readily available and cheaper than dressed or surfaced lumber. Rough sawn lumber also looks attractively rustic.
The floor: There is no allowance for a structural floor in this plan-set as the gazebo is designed to use the existing (grassed) ground as a 'floor'. If a structural floor of some description is preferred, then concrete, tiles, slate or lumber can easily be added later.
Note: These plans are not intended for the purpose of building permit or consent. If you have any doubts whether a building permit or consent is required for the structure of this gazebo, please inquire at your local authority.
