This winter we had a new project at Villa BellaVista. To build a new pergola on our front terrace. We already have one pergola in our garden, as shown in the photo below, where we hang all our hammocks for total relaxation. Now we were going to have another similar pergola on the terrace, to avoid having large sun umbrellas which in the summer seem to blow in the wind and break easily.
Ingredients for pergola:
– 12 wooden posts (10cm x 12 cm thick)
-colourful paint to protect the wood (we chose a reddish colour to match the existing pergola)
-lots of metal screws and metal brackets
-drills, chainsaw and various other tools
-nice Croatian weather and an amazing view
-3 men (Mr C + 2 local guys who are good
at building LEGO at DIY
-1 woman (Ms E to supervise the 3 men)
-plenty of kava (coffee)
Once you have gathered all the ingredients, get the men working and just tell them what to do!
