Building a Pergola Made From Western Red Cedar

Complete with cozy bench seating, this beautiful Western Red Cedar pergola will instantly define and enhance your outdoor living space.

The L-shaped, two-level layout is specifically designed to offer several points of visual interest, provide shade on a hot day, and create a welcoming atmosphere for entertaining guests as well as an open-air retreat for relaxing after a hard days work.

Get started by clicking the project plans PDF icon to the left. Alternately, you may also visit our Real Cedar 3D Warehouse profile by clicking on the Sketchup icon, or view our YouTube video by clicking on the YouTube icon.

And because you’ve chosen a durable wood like Western Red Cedar, which is naturally resistant to rot and decay, this backyard beauty will last you a very long time.

Designed by:
MyFixitUpLife’s Mark & Theresa Clement exclusively for Real Cedar.
