    These structure is so simple yet complicated. Don’t guess on the cuts and angles. Buy the plans! The plans come with templates for the cuts and angels. My handyman didn’t waste a single piece of wood because you don’t have to guess at any of the cuts.

    I built this structure for a wedding we had in our backyard for my daughter last month. I painted it white and hung shear curtain on 3 of the sides and we had a flower and succulent arrangement down the front side. It looked spectacular! The plans made building this stress free during a busy wedding planning time.
