Pergolas, Gazebos, and Overheads

The word pergola comes from the late Latin word pergula which means a projecting eave. In modern parlance, a Pergola is a structure with beams, rafters, and lattice that typically has a vine like plant growing through it. Pergola styles are loosely based on Italianate architecture and they are commonly found in wine country.

A Pergola creates an outdoor room that can be used for dining, entertaining or just escaping the midday sun.
