Wood Octagon Gazebos A classy backyard gazebo design for your home
A wooden octagon backyard gazebo is a great way to bring lasting beauty to your living space. These natural wood octagon gazebos provide long-lasting solace to a human soul needing refreshment and rejuvenation in a comfortable outdoor retreat. As you relax in the elegant wood structure, you can admire the fine wood grain and ponder what happened as each year of fiber was added to the tree used to make your wooden backyard gazebo. This structure is built to be enjoyed.
Timeless. Natural. Beauty. Our octagon gazebos are a result of decades and even centuries of knowledge, creativity, wisdom, and craftsmanship. This pleasing effect of this gazebo is not merely because of one element. Instead, it is because of a variety of factors. Plus it is how these elements are combined… First of all, the shape is one that has stood the test of time–the octagon. Many ancient and modern structures have followed this design. People have loved it for millennia, and they still love it today.
The second factor is the material we use. We don’t try to get away with cheap synthetic lumber. We use the “real deal.” The pressure-treated rot-resistant yellow pine used to build each octagon gazebo will last for decades. When it comes in contact with the ground, normal wood will begin to rot after a few years, however with this rot-resistant wood you can enjoy your backyard structure for decades. The wood on our octagonal backyard gazebos has the grain, fiber, and texture of the real thing–high-grade lumber sourced from the best pine and spruce forests. These materials augment feelings of security and relaxation as you sit and enjoy your upgraded backyard.
The final factor is the process we use to build each structure. Large machines do not mass-produce these outdoor gazebos. Instead, real people, who care deeply about their craft, meticulously assemble each structure. When you purchase a backyard gazebo from us, you get an attractive rendezvous of timeless design, natural integrity, and careful craftsmanship.

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.
I had two of the workers come to my house to install a cedar roof on my gazebo. They arrived at 7:00 am and worked all day long. I can say that these two workers were the hardest workers I have ever seen in my life. It was absolute perfection! I have pictures. You may also come to my home to see the job they did. Truly unbelievably beautiful. Thank you guys and God blessed you with such great talent. I already gave my neighbor your website and phone number.

Gazebo, Octagon, Wood
We had been searching for a gazebo for months and found Pequea/Lancaster County backyard. The buying experience was first rate. Elmer showed us around their facility and was extremely helpful in selecting and customizing our gazebo and providing detailed information on site preparation. He was always available for my many questions and couldn’t have been friendlier or more cooperative. Delivery to our somewhat challenging site was handled easily by Ivan. The gazebo looks fantastic. We would highly recommend Pequea to anyone looking for a high quality, attractive gazebo,.

Gazebo, Octagon, Wood
We are thrilled with the quality, fit and finish, and appearance of our new gazebo. It has been a pleasure working with you during the planning and delivery discussions. It was also great that you were flexible with our delivery date because dry and firm ground was absolutely essential to getting the unit in place.
I watched your Dad every step of the way during the on site handling and set up and he is amazing. The combination of the specialized equipment and the skill of Ivan were astounding to us. Very well done. We also appreciate the care with which Ivan handled the gazebo and completed the final leveling. All-in-all – fantastic!

Gazebo, Octagon, Wood
The gazebo is beautiful, with lovely flourishes and rounded corners. It is sturdy (2×6 flooring), high-quality PT wood, and has a cupola that is like a cherry on top! I love it and will spend many a hot summer afternoon reading there. Sales staff was professional, appointment made promptly, and delivery was perfect (less than 2hrs to install). I camouflaged the 4×4 skids and landscaped around it. Price was right too! Most competitive on the market for my area. Life is good!

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!
