Kentucky Gable Roof Gazebo

Kentucky Gable


This was built in my workshop to give me a project I could do in out of the weather. I decided to enclose the building to use it as a feature near my garden. I ended up using treated wood, which was a pain because it is not stable. I hope a dark stain will give me the look I want. I will send you pictures after I get the windows and siding on it. The building is two inches narrower than my door! Hope I measured right!

I didn’t keep track of my time. I have approached this project slowly and haven’t been in a hurry. I mortised all the stringers, which took forever. Ended up cutting the rafter curves with a circular saw, then polished to shape tracing the pattern with a router.

I am using hardiboard for the siding. It gets two opaque windows on the sides and a moon window on the end. I will send updates. The fun part will be picking this up to move it to its final spot. I hope my tractor will pick it up.!
