The 4-Beam Kingston Pergola Kit is our revolutionary design using the famous DoveTail joint. This kit can be customized with the options to the right (Length, width, color, etc.).Please note that the rafters run along the width, so you can choose which direction you would like the rafters to run with that in mind. Also note that if you would like the kit to come unfinished, or bare wood, you must check the unfinished box under “Colors”.
Regular- 8″x8″-10′ posts, 3″x10″ beams, 3″x8″ rafters, 2″x4″ cross supports and 3″x8″ knee-braces
Enhanced- 8″x8″-10′ posts, 3″x12″ beams, 3″x10″ rafters, 2″x6″ cross supports and 3″x8″ knee-braces
Why is the Kingston a superior structure? The Kingston has the greatest load baring capacity among all our kits (from the paired beam design) while still providing the benefits of the DoveTail joint. The two beam pairs running perpendicular to the rafters sit on notched posts and the other two beam pairs join the first with the DoveTail joint. This configuration is exceptionally strong allowing all 8 knee-braces to set between the beam pairs and attach to the posts. This minimizes warping and separation between beams and knee-braces.
All our kits come with everything needed to assemble including fasteners, wood plugs, mounting brackets, and touch up stain/paint. The timber pieces are made from high grade material (#1 or BTR Douglas Fir, and #2 or BTR Cedar), and remember for every kit you purchase we will have 5 trees planted in your name. Conscious living is the only way to live! If you would like your pergola customized beyond the options you see here just give us a call!
Live the good Life!
