Choose a gazebo location within the limits of your home. Measure out the square meter of your metal gazebo with respect to availability while taking precautions not overtopping your backyard. Create a design for your gazebo by making a rough sketch of how you want the finished construction to look. If you don’t have a design in mind, you can find online sites that offer plans free of charge. You can also visit your local library for a selection of drawings. Measure and cut crossbeam bars and headers using a bow file. This will be determined by your design.
Weld them to the vertical posts at each attachment point, check for signs of weakness. You may also want to add a unique design to the top of your gazebo at this stage. Measure and cut the rails to coincide with the number of services. Place your rails at a height you are most comfortable with. Ground and weld the rails to each post, is sure to allow a track free section for access. If you prefer an open floor plan, the rails can be completely eliminated. Prime and paint metal gazebo as desired. This will depend on the type of metal used. Wrought iron rarely needs a topcoat, while aluminum and most types of steel do.
