How to make the pergola work?
February 6, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are converting our house to craftsman style. We have called a halt to the building process with regards to the pergola. It got out of hand and wound up being 12 x 18. With the roofline being so low I don't know whether to cut back the overhang, change the orientation of the rafters and add lattice, or what!! Currently there will be rafters dying into each section of roof. There's a center gluelam that will run the center span and die into the front header. This is Phoenix, AZ and this section of the house faces the park and due west. I'd love to hear ANY suggestions! Thanks all.
