Noel built the pergola. Matt helped out with some load questions
Oscar helped Noel
Here's a good look at the concrete. Prince and Ben were very interested in what was going on.
Taking a break
Noel convinced us to go up from 8 foot from concrete to bottom of the header to 8 foot 6 inches.
We are really glad we did.
End of day one of putting it together. The pieces were cut and painted the days before except for the 2x2 bats which were painted (some of the 50) today by Matt, Richard, and Brian.
This night Kathy, Richard, Monica, and Oscar dance under the pergola and it was great!!!!
