Now its time to decide how to light it

Very, very nice work. Looks like you had some good help, although the trench safety on your jobsite is definately not in OSHA compliance! :laughing: Looks like the little guy was having fun.

I'd light it from the ground shining upward. Might create a neat effect. It would be a shame to hang a light ON the pergola.

My husband and I designed and built it, with our little forman overseeing the entire project
