A Garden Arbour in the Arts and Crafts Style
Arts and Crafts Garden Arbour Plans
When it comes to garden arbour plans, most are not designed to last. Here is our version of an Arts and Crafts Style Garden Arbour– The arts and crafts movement was about craftsmen doing wonderful things using the simple tools at hand and their creativity. This design challenge was to create an arts and crafts era arbour, using simple tools as they would have had in the 1930’s, so, nothing more than a table saw. (We cheated and used power nailers though). This is a deluxe looking garden arbour that is anything but crude. It should take a couple of weekends for a seasoned handyman to build.
Proportionally, this garden arbour is designed to fit a wheelbarrow through. Add a gate if you like. It should be placed over a pathway or the entrance of a yard. It should be built of redwood or western red cedar. Permanent footings should be used and the plans give you a durable frost free footing detail. No worry of this garden arbour heaving out of level if you follow the instructions. Stain should be applied to the parts before building, so we included a stain application guide as well.
This structure, if built with the plans should last about 20 years with posts set in concrete.
