Step Two- Identifying the elements of your Pergola
In order to successfully put together your pre cut pergola kit, you will need to be able to identify all of the elements of the structure. Furthermore we will be referring to all of the pieces by their names from here on in, so it makes sense to establish what is what at this point.
Your kit will be delivered with a bill of materials and a cutting list. The names of each timber on the list correspond to their names in the diagram below (click on the diagram to enlarge it) Before building anything, conduct a thorough check to ensure you have every piece of timber.
To help you identify and assemble the timber members they have been marked. The markings are on the cut ends so that they will be visible when the timber is painted and not visible once the structure is complete. There are some members that you will need to mark, however we recommend that you should paint all members before marking anything.
