The structure was made from 2x6 timber for the top frame measuring 8' by 12' by 8' high. The columns were made by 4"x4" wood assembled with wood screws. Diagonal reinforcements were added at the corners and metal brackets were added at the corners for added structural stability. We found some scrap wood to add additional reinforcements to the corners of the frame.
We painted the frame white using paint suitable for outdoor conditions.
-These images were taken later in the process however they best demonstrate the construction of the frame.
