This 12×24 timber frame pergola design has such versatile dimensions! Attach it to your house for a generous outdoor living area, or locate it poolside for a place to catch some shade. Leave the rafters exposed, or train flowering vines on them for extra shade and ambience. There is plenty of room for dining furniture in one bay, and lounge chairs or conversation grouping in the second bay.
With only two bents and a flat roof pitch, this design is relatively quick and easy to build for the space it offers. Be aware that it is not recommended to cover a flat pitch with metal or shingles if you are in a wet or snowy area.
