A novice builder who can calculate square footage, and physically handle power tools can complete such a project. The wood needed for gazebo kit can be purchased pre-cut, making the kit more expensive, but easier to assemble.
The size of the gazebo will dictate the amount of time needed to complete the kit. Nearly all kits offer photos and descriptions of tools, and hardware needed to complete the project. Sorting the hardware, such as screws, brackets, and bolts prior to starting the project will insure all required materials are present.
Gazebo kits require basic knowldege of construction techniques, but can be accomplished successfully by reasonably skilled novice builders.
Understanding Gazebo Plans The larger the gazebo project, the more detailed the construction plans. Plans are designed to guide builders with at least a elementary knowledge of building skills. Reading the plans will require an understanding of board cutting tools, leveling, and use of tools necessary for construction.
Power tools are required for the cutting of wood for flooring, and post supports. This aspect of gazebo construction is the most important, because all other steps build upon the installation of a floor, and support for a roof.
The roof of the gazebo will require use of shinlges, tiles, or other waterproof material decided upon in advance of project construction. An expert builder in not required for the roof process, but attention to detail, and testing of the roof for leaks is an extremely important aspect of the process.
Site preparation should be considered in advance of searching for gazebo plans. Some areas require permits, and place limit on size of structures added to a property. A level site, and post holes will be the building blocks for a successful gazebo project. The geographical nature of an area, such as flooding, or storm water run-off can derail a project.
Novice builders should consider hiring a professional to aid in the site preparation responsibilities.
