It’s been quite a journey for both Fraser (our carpenter) and myself on this Pergola project for our new garden at Forsythe. Quite a difference from my crude thumbnail to the finished structure. We worked through the logistics and tension of expectation, budget and realities. And overall, I’m quite pleased with the outcome. The final coat of stain is on. We just have the feet to finish once the stonework on the terrace is completed. Fence is stained. Big trees in and the retaining wall is underway. Looking forward to the fountain being installed as a centre piece for the Pergola (that’s “center” for my American friends). One more thing to check off the list.
