Pergolas and Pavilions
rolling green hills of South East Pennsylvania is the home of the largest concentration of Amish people in the world. Away from the main road and tourist traps is some of the prettiest country you’ll ever see. People from the Northeast aren’t surprised when they pull up behind a horse drawn buggy, but for those visiting for the first time, it’s a startling site. You’ll see well-kept houses, barns and silos sticking up amongst lush green fields of corn and tobacco. Along with plenty of horses, cows, chickens, goats and deer. Most of us are still farmers and we love our land, but starting a few decades ago, many of us became builders. We continue to follow our code and our way of life because of the way it keeps us together morning, day and night.
Our hope is that we can be a part of bringing your family closer together.
to Amish Country.
Here is what a few people have had to say about their experience: The quality of the wood and construction is absolutely phenomenal. Much better than we thought even possible. - Frank M. Greenville, SC My daughter Chelsea loves to come spend time with me in our new gazebo. She loves it. - Stephen S., Lancaster, PA The Grandkids call it “Grandma’s second home.” She loves to go out there to get away, and also to spend time with the grand kids. - Glen B., York PA Our neighbors told us one day, the deck was ripped off, and the next they saw a brand new sunroom. Amazing! - George and Leah M. Belaire MD. We were concerned that maybe the vinyl might be shaky or flimsy. Then I caught my teenage sons chasing each other around the roof. This thing is built like Fort Knox! - Linda S., St. Louis, MO First, I had them build and install a gazebo and sunroom and I thought, “Why not ask them to build my garage?” I was amazed at the quality and how in sync they were putting my garage up in 2 days. - Raymond P. Lancaster, PA

Dozens of homeowners and municipalities save thousands of dollars on construction and design costs while achieving a more functional and visually appealing end result on custom and commercial projects. Recently, we built a 6-sided pavilion attached to a rectangle, and then a pergola extending from there. We did this particular project with a simple sketch and no engineering costs. The 24’ Pavilion and 48’ custom pergola was designed and built by our firm along with our Canada Distributor and D. A. Dale Building Designs, the company the provides all the certified engineered drawings for our gazebos.
Love of beauty is taste.
The creation of beauty is art. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson There are no idle hands in our currently all-Amish shop in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. At any one time, we have from 5 to as many as 20 structures moving through the shop. There is an assembly-line approach where each man has his job and where everyone pitches in to help when needed.
Our pressure treated lumber has a limited lifetime guarantee and is impenetrable to termites and fungus.
All deck boards are milled at our plant to be smooth and rounded on the edges, ready for bare feet on day one with no splinters or knots.
Tongue and groove ceiling creates a more attractive look. Roof is strengthened by double 2" x 4" rafters. (not flimsy single 2" x 4")
Double 2â€? x 6â€? floor joists remilled in our shop for superior fit and strength
Standard Features on all Wood Gazebos b
Hand Selected, Premium pressure treated lumber on deck, fascia, posts, frame – better than Premium #1, the best lumber money can buy. Cupolas are standard on all of our gazebos and provide real ventilation.
Floor Decking is 2” x 6”, not 5/4”x 6”. Each floor joist is 2” x 6” wrapped with 2” x 6” octagon/rectangle. 3-Layer laminated posts preserve beauty and durability for years without splitting that commonly (almost always) occurs with solid posts. 8” to 10” Top Plate (depending on size) which forms the ring around the gazebo between the posts, and the roof structure.
Today’s pressure treated lumber requires corrosion resistant fasteners so our gazebos have stainless steel screws in most applications.
Railings are each made using three (3) 2” x 4” sections (not 2” x 3”) for sturdiness, safety, and structural integrity. 2” x 2” straight spindles, (the vertical part of the railings) are each machined/joined with a 22 ½ degree slot. Roof Rafters are either double 2” x 4” or single 2” x 6”. (Some competitors use single 2” x 4”.) Spindles are each secured with 4 stainless steel finish nails. Ceiling is pressure treated Tongue & Groove.
Railings made with three, 2" x 4" and 2" x 2" straight balusters. (typical builders use 2” x 3”)
Three piece 4"x 4" laminated posts (solid 4x4's split, crack and twist)
2” x 6” half-moon braces with 1” x 3” trim.
It’s value is unending. It’s beauty is unchanging. It’s serenity is unwavering. The two biggest reasons to go with vinyl are aesthetics and maintenance, not so much durability. You won’t ever have to stain or paint your gazebo. It will only require washing now and then. If you prefer the way wood looks, you should know that a wood gazebo will last just as long as vinyl, it just requires more maintenance.
Railing Bases and Top Rail are Both Filled with 2” x 3” Lumber for Unshakable Sturdiness and Durability
