    Hi All, I'm working towards a plan of building a 16'x16' pavilion in my backyard, and also having a 10'x16' pergola on either side. My plan is to build it out of white oak, since this is available to me for a good price. My problem is I have the whole plan in my head, but I'm not sure on...

As luck has it, a ceiling joist runs lengthwise immediately over the tub so not enough open space to move it around in existing space to accommodate my objective.
