Many summer residents in the workshops store various materials left over from the construction of the main objects: metal profiles, sawn timber, plastic, tiles. Thanks to the resourcefulness and imagination, these remains are successfully used by craftsmen for various needs. No exception and do-it-yourself gazebos made of scrap materials: photos of creative structures confirm that in terms of functionality and design they are often not inferior to ready-made turnkey gazebos.
We choose material for garden arbors with our own hands. Photos of interesting options
Getting acquainted with photos of summer houses, placed on the net with their own hands, one can see very different, sometimes unique solutions. Craftsmen do not cease to amaze with ingenuity and skill. Inspired by fresh ideas, you can proceed to the construction of an individual gazebo, which will probably not have any analogues in the whole district.
Wood – the most popular material for the construction of pavilions. Various wooden elements in the form of logs, boards, bars, plywood are available in any yard. Wood is easy to process, the tools necessary for the construction of wooden structures are in the arsenal of almost every owner. Arbors from a tree are durable and organically fit into registration of any seasonal dacha.
The arbor originally looks in the garden from trunks felled as unnecessary trees. The trunks themselves act as supporting posts, for the horizontal elements of the fence use thicker branches, thin branches serve as a filling for the fences. The shape of such arbors give the most different: they can be round, oval, square, rectangular or multi-faceted. To cover the roof can be used reed, shingles or long branches.
Wooden gazebos from the log have a very attractive look. A massive structure, completely made of logs – quite expensive. Therefore, very often in the construction of arbors include some elements of this material. For example, logs are sawn into pieces of small size and are used only as support sections.
It has to rest a gazebo, the fence of which is made in the form of a wattle fence. For racks of such fencing, stakes or bars are used, and for binding, shoots of hazel, willow or birch. A photo of a tree gazebo to give will inspire you to create your own individual design in the garden.
Using a stone, white or red brick to build a gazebo, they get a monumental and durable structure. Such structures can be both open and closed. In the latter version, they are equipped with doors and windows, and the resulting structure may well serve as a summer kitchen or a guest house.
If the brick remaining after construction is not enough to build full walls, only basic supports can be constructed from the material. The remaining elements of the gazebo are performed by combining brick with other materials: a metal profile, a wooden bar, polycarbonate and other residues will be suitable. It should be remembered that the construction of brick is quite massive and requires a solid foundation, and this entails considerable expenses.
The arbors which contain stonework in their construction perfectly fit into the dacha landscape. Especially organically with such buildings are combined the picturesque alpine hills with stones and paved paths located nearby. But if you do not have enough experience in working with natural stone, it is better to invite a specialist for laying.
Helpful advice! After completion of the installation of natural stone, it is necessary to treat its surface with a special lacquer composition. This can significantly affect the durability of the brickwork.
Arbors from metal quite often meet in a country exterior. The structures built from the metal profile have a light openwork appearance, although they are quite strong and durable. Such arbors can serve for several decades. However, the construction of metal structures requires a welding machine and some experience with it.
Metal is perfectly combined with other materials. And to cover the roof in metal gazebos use polycarbonate, corrugated board, wood and other materials available at hand. Compatibility of metal with other materials allows you to use everything that you have in stock.
As a rule, the roofing material repeats the coverage of the main house, which favorably affects the maintenance of a single architectural style. Only two days – and the arbor is ready with the hands from improvised materials. Photo-selection of metal structures will help to determine the final version of the arbor in your garden.
Some metal structures of arbors are made collapsible. They can be easily and quickly dismantled and hibernate in the workshop or garage. An important requirement for all metal structures is timely treatment of the surface against corrosion.
Especially attractive and relevant look gazebos made of polycarbonate. The material is lightweight, durable and ductile. Due to the flexibility of polycarbonate sheets, it is possible to give the design any desired shape. In addition, polycarbonate perfectly combines with other materials: metal profiles, wood, plastic, natural stone, brick, etc. The light transmission and the various color palette of the material promotes the widespread use of polycarbonate as a roofing material.
Pavilions, covered with polycarbonate, can be both voluminous and capacious, and very miniature, accommodating a couple of small benches and a table. Pavilions of the most unpredictable forms can be built from this material: from a simple canopy to a gazebo in the form of a sphere or a dome. Even if you have quite a bit of this material left, you can fabricate the original structure by combining polycarbonate panels with other available materials.
Due to the ease of construction of polycarbonate, you can assemble an arbor with your own hands in one day. It is mounted easily, does not require special tools, as well as special professional skills. Enough to ask some of the rules and recommendations for installation. Due to the lightness of the material, it is not necessary to build a massive foundation for polycarbonate construction.
Most often, the structures of arbors are made of materials whose surplus remained after the construction of country houses or other buildings. But another completely unexpected raw material can be used.
