This hexagonal pergola plan was originally designed as a barbeque gathering area holding a smoker. It would be a great enhancement to any garden! The posts are cut from 12×12 timbers to fit the hexagonal shape. This frame has a commanding presence with an overall height of over 16’-5”. The top of the 4×8 collar beams is 10 feet high, and the roof pitch is over 8 in 12. It is designed to be constructed of Western Red Cedar, maple, or hemlock. The braces and struts are secured to the collar beams and posts with beautiful mortise and tenon joinery. Structural screws and Timberlinx connectors secure other frame elements for superior strength.
The overall size of this hexagonal pergola plan is 17’6 ½” x 15’-2 ¼’ from outside to outside of the posts, with each flat side measuring 8’-9 ¼” wide. The timbers include 4×6 braces and rafters, 4×8 collars and struts, 6×6 hips and purlins, an 8×8 top plate, and a 10×10 boss pin. It takes 2014 total board feet to complete this frame.
