DIY 20×20 Pavilion
From Gary Gentry,
My first ever project. My first cut saw. So I set the saw on first cut at 60 degrees. Just didn’t look right. So I finally figured out that 60 means 30 …DIY people like me need the simplest instructions. Followed your plans pretty much. Very nice! One day for concrete. 2 days for framing. One day for top beam and rafters, sheeting. Plan to put shingles on tomorrow. Around 3000 in materials. $800 for hired hands to help…really needed one young guy yesterday to help me. (I’m almost 59). We used a laser level to set the concrete pillars. I’m off a little. But overall square within 3/4 inch. I’m exhausted but glad we did it. We did it for our non-profit called Hope House Detroit…an abandoned lot comes back to life!
