Arbors and Trellises
Ireland Shed Arbor
On the side of a row house in Alexandria, Janssen Carpentry built a custom cedar shed and shelves. One door was a rolling barn-type door and the other was a double door to allow for the narrow side yard. We also added a custom arbor on the back of the house over the back patio.
A large arbor constructed out of cedar that can be used as a gathering area for large parties and celebrations with lights, electric and a fan to help keep those pesky insects at bay.
This project entailed building two posts to blend with the existing porch posts, adding a lattice panel with an arched opening between the posts, a privacy screen and a fence with a gate. Note the cross pieces on top of the beams connecting the posts and the house. There are two different sets of cross pieces, the 3x3 pieces were the original design and the 2x10 were a change order after the project was completed.
Ragan/Shulman Patio Arbor
Janssen Carpentry constructed a large, custom arbor over a concrete patio In the backyard. This created a nice family gathering and sitting area. The cross pieces in the center created a “skylight” effect.
