The Lakefront is a go-to when you need a price-competitive outdoor structure that’s made to last for decades. The design of this wood pavilion is straight-forward without sacrificing quality or longevity.
For something a bit higher class, the Cheyenne wood pavilion increases the dimensions of the post size, roof overhang, and more. These design elements give this pavilion a stronger look and feel, while creating a welcoming environment.
Our Timber Frame Outdoor Pavilions combine the modern structure with the traditional art of mortise and tenon joined heavy timbers. Constructed with #1 Douglas Fir Timbers, these solid structures combine classic detail with the rustic beauty of natural wood. These pavilions are great for a large picnic area in the backwoods, a backyard barbecue or commercial pavilions for business, parks, or a poolside resort.
Sit in your backyard or backwoods on a cold summer evening and enjoy your surroundings. Release your stresses to the wind and enjoy nature. A wood pavilion is a great place to hang out with friends, barbecue chicken, and refresh yourself.

I selected Lancaster County Backyards primarily for their ability to provide the product and services that I was looking for within the geographic radius of where I live. I was also impressed with Elmer’s level of knowledge and that he took time to answer my questions and provide details on how the pergola would be designed. He was also very response to my emails and calls which is important to me and very thorough in the information provided back.

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 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!

Can I mount a pavilion on a concrete pad?
We recommend that the pavilion columns are placed on concrete piers (cut the concrete and place piers in).
Can I place a pergola or pavilion on bare ground?
To place a pergola/pavilion on bare ground, you should first install concrete piers that mound just a bit above the surface of the ground. (for concrete pier details, see Answer to Q. Can I mount it on my paver patio?)
Can I mount a pergola or pavilion on my deck?
If you’re mounting to an existing wood deck, a good and proper mounting method is to drop the posts down through the deck and secure them to the joists. The recommended method is to take the wooden portion of the post down through the deck. (Trim pieces for vinyl make this a bit simpler.)
Can I mount a pergola or pavilion to my paver patio?
We do not recommend fastening to pavers. They do not provide structural stability and are not a secure anchoring method. The recommended method is to install concrete piers 18” in diameter and 36” deep. Remove a section of pavers approximately 24” in diameter. Then dig down 36”. Fill with concrete to approximately one to two inches below the bottom of pavers. After the pergola or pavilion is installed, the pavers can be cut to fit and replaced around the columns.
