Have you considered subbing it out to a high end fence company that builds these all of the time?

Sounds like you may want to consider involving a designer for this project- may be a small investment for a really cool winter project.

Keep in mind that standard pt lumber will warp, twist, check, crack, and do all kinds of funky things that will create go-backs for you.

How elaborate do you want to go on the pergola. I have some pics of some but I am not sure what you are looking for. Fully enclosed top, Open top with sunshade or partial open/closed?

Until we know what the style of the house and types of material the house is constructed of, it will be very hard to help you.

getthenet: Can you please type like a normal person by not capitalizing every single word in each and every sentence? It makes your posts extremely hard to read. Thanks in advance for your help.
