Cedar vs. pressure-treated pine for pergola posts


just do the list yourself....the sizes are all there and just calculate the numer of total feet you need and buy the corresponding 8',10' or longer boards..........you can do your own facny scallop on the end with a jigsaw and adapt this plant to whatever size you want. FYI - mine is build directly onto my deck and I put 2x6 blockes under the deck and made sure all screw holes on the plate were used and it's been up 15 months and never moved. I used PT as it was cheaper and the deck is PT. Hope it goes well, and you can go to Home Depot and give them the material list and they can figure it out for you - I tossed my calculations away once done.
