Trellis Construction

My father and I constructed this trellis as an entryway to our yard. We were inspired by the intricate chamfering of Japanese architecture and wanted to give it a try. The over all structure used 8 beams of wood and is 11 ft in height. We secured and stabilized the structure with metal spikes into the ground and put limited reinforcing screws to stabilize the upper beams since our area is prone to earthquakes. We finished the trellis with weather sealant and paint.
