Octagon Backyard Gazebo: Built with a Great Shape

The iconic 8-sided octagon has been a favorite trait in architecture and design throughout history. Octagon buildings originally represented renewal and regeneration, and this unique design can be found in buildings all over the world. The Dome of the Rock, Tower of the Winds in Athens, and the Basilica of San Vitale are all examples of significant buildings built around an octagon.

This octagonal shape is also roomy. It’s semi-circular and therefore has very little non-usable space. Because of its absence of space-consuming corners, it offers more usable room compared to a different-shaped structure with the same footprint. This makes for a great gazebo that gives more than it takes from your precious backyard.

What’s the best way to care for a wood structure?

The milling of lumber creates an extremely smooth surface. Structures may be factory stained, but the best time to apply stain for longevity is approximately 3 months after installation. That way, the majority of checking will be exposed and the dryer, more porous wood will hold stain better. Check this blog post about “PRESERVING OUTDOOR WOOD

Will the stain color last on a wood structure?

We only use high-quality stains. Our basic stains have a lower pigment percentage compared to an even higher quality premium stain. The darker the stain, the more protection it offers and the longer it will last. Pergolas get the most exposure, and degradation faster compared to pavilions or gazebos.

Will the wood check on my structure?

Wood checking is part of the experience of owning a wood structure. Most checks appear in the first year after installing the pavilion, pergola, or gazebo. Inevitable checking is one of the reasons we recommend waiting until 3 months after installation to stain a structure. That way the stain can be applied while the wood is still fresh but after the majority of checking has occurred.

Do you offer a DIY kit?

Depending on your requirements, we could produce a kit for your structure. We don’t recommend DIY kits for these structures, however, as the building requirements can be complicated. Our builders are fast, efficient, and experts in their field. Give us a try!
