DIY Projects: Pavilions and Workshops

Back To All Projects

Pavilions and gazebos are simple constructions and good for your first DIY project.

We have selected a couple of workshop projects as well - because if you are a shedbuilder, you would definitely need a place to build things.

John's guide to build a tent/pavilion. The author recommends to get the The Pavilion Book if you really want to start building. I think the guide is good enough to decide if you want to build a pavilion or not.
