Default Magellan did my neighbors pergola

According to the neighbor the pergola must be able to withstand hurricane force winds. He had to have an architetural application approved. It does need to attach to the house to pass their inspection. They also had a wall erected on our side for privacy. HMMMMM. Guess I talk too much. It is beautiful but the only regret I have is that it seriously blocks my view and I like to see the other folks in the back.

Yes and was very happy with their work. Villages Palms Landscape coming by tomorrow to design and complete project and measure for pavers and walkway to lanai. Talked to neighbor tonight and theirs is going in a few days away. I would never have begun to do myself what they did. Their method of attaching to house and workmanship were superior, in my estimation. To avoid a neighborhood traffic jam, pm me and when it is finished I'll send you my address.

It's going to be a few weeks as we are going out of town a couple times in next few weeks, but I certainly will.

Up north, of course, you have to worry about the frost depth - footings needed to be 4 feet deep in WI if I'm remembering correctly, but less in central Ohio. In Florida, probably just need to make sure the base is strong (thick) enough to support the weight?

I'd be interested in getting a contractor to either do the kit for us, or do something similar, depending on cost.
There isn't usually any room to put any structure on the side of a CYV unlsee you have a corner lot. Check your setbacks on your siteplan.

The 12x12 concrete pad was under a hot tub the previous owner had in a private side yard of our CYV. I finished it with ceramic tile.

The pergola is a perfect addition, and still looks new four years later. I searched the internet extensively. Vinyl and cedar pergolas are more expensive. If you'd like to see a photo, send me a PM with your email address.

Pergola's are not allowed to be built in the front in The Villages

My lanai faces north so one side of the lanai faces west. So sun comes into the lanai in the late afternoon/early evening. Will a pergola on the western side of the lanai (which would be attached to the back of the house) do a good job at minimizing the sun into the lanai? Is there a particular design that keeps out the sun more than others?

If you Google "vinyl pergolas" you'll come up with hundreds of kits, sellers and ideas for pergolas. They have pergola kits rated for 140 mph winds, and up to 4' of snow loads. I had no idea that there's a whole pergola industry out there!

Default Pergola

We had one installed about a month ago by Magellan. Beautiful work, completed in 2 days. We had ceiling fans, and several electrical outlets installed at the same time. These guys are local, and I recommend them highly.
