Pergola in Wellesley

The main reason that this pergola was built was because in the winter snow and ice were falling from the roof and the homeowners wanted to create a protective arch. The most obvious thing would be to build a roof over the porch and end here it, but the clients wanted to keep their yard open - let in as much light as possible. Then I thought: "Why don't we build a pergola?! Build it out of solid wood to give protection, privacy, and still allow plenty of light to pass through, while looking great. This was the beginning of Pergola in Wellesley story.

The entire pergola was built with red cedar, as well as the lattice under the deck. The deck itself is built with mahogany. For the railings, contrary to popular techniques, we used composite railing. This is how our creation came to life.
