Im a feather weight at construction. I built i deck and now have started on a 12X12 gazebo. Looking for any tips on building a Gazebo. I'm building a 12X12 octagon gazebo with a 12:12 pitch roof with a 36" raised deck.
>Need some with my rafter layout I found some plans online but they all have collar ties that cut across the middle of the roof ( looks ugly to me). one of the plans i looked at could be found at
With a 12/12 pitch you won't need collar ties.
Since you are only working on it on week ends i would make sure everything is always braced up securely and keep your lumber stacked and covered if possible.
How are you securing the base?
