What To Know Before Deciding To Build A Gazebo

With almost perfect weather all year round, Barbados is definitely a place to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Whether it’s dining, swimming, lounging, or hosting a family get-together, party or barbecue, you’ll definitely want to consider adding an outdoor structure to your home. Not only will this part of your home enrich your family life, but a well-built outdoor structure will also add to the value of your property.

Over the last few years, Millworks Inc. has expanded its capabilities to include the design, manufacture and installation of a number of decorative and complex hardwood external gazebo structures. Every gazebo is custom-built to each of our client’s needs and specifications. If you’re thinking about a structure that would transform your outdoor space and serve well for dining or lounging, the gazebo is an excellent choice providing shade and shelter, and it also works wonderfully to complement your garden, pool or patio.

Before deciding on getting a gazebo, you should evaluate the location carefully to be sure it meets your needs and provides the best environment for this type of structure. The best sites for outdoor structures are level and flat for proper support and drainage. You’ll want to avoid adding a new structure to low-lying areas where water tends to pool or settle after heavy rain. Immature trees may also interfere with your proposed site as they grow larger, so be sure to take this into account. Also, consider the paths you are likely to take through your yard to reach the structure, avoiding potential hazards such as poorly lit areas or protruding tree stumps.


Finally, be sure to choose an area that’s compatible with your intended purpose for your new outdoor structure. If possible, choose a site that is centrally located to encourage socializing and entertainment. If your aim is privacy and seclusion, choose a more remote location near hedges, shrubbery or trees to provide a quiet haven for relaxation and reflection. If you intend for your gazebo to be an ideal afternoon tea or dining spot, consider building it close to the house for easier access.
