Hi and welcome to this article about how to build a gazebo in just 5 easy steps. When it comes to DIY projects where you build a structure it’s important to have a good plan or you will make all the common mistakes. And the worst case scenario is that you have to deconstruct your gazebo again.
I want you to show you how to avoid all those pitfalls. And that’s why I’m going to give you 5 easy steps that you can follow when building your own gazebo.
Alright, let’s start.
The first step. Download plans for a gazebo. There are plenty of ways to get plans, even for free. All you need to do is a little bit of research online. But be careful which kind of plan you chose. Since it’s the internet, everyone can share their ideas. People who never constructed anything share their ideas and claim it would be the perfect plan. That’s why you should only download plans that you trust to work.
Step 2. Jot down each and every piece of material and all tools you will have to use. This is a major point that you have to do. If you have a good list you can buy everything to build a gazebo in advance and don’t have to pause your construction later on. Otherwise you might have to pause your project to get the missing parts.
The third step. Ask your neighbors, friends and family members if they have some experience with such kind of DIY projects. In case you need any information or help you know which person will help you getting things done.
Step number four. Find out where you can rent or borrow tools. You are going to need a lot of money if you have to actually buy every single tool you need.
The last step. This step is important! Find out which laws apply to your project. Many countries have regulations and laws that regulate the construction of outdoor structures. You have to ensure that your gazebo will comply with every law.
