This project is one that I have built on my own land beside our swimming pond. It sits on a deck that we built over a large water cistern where we collect our spring water for domestic use as it flows into the pond. The arbour is made from reclaimed and salvaged red cedar driftwood […]

This 4 post hand split red cedar arbour is made from reclaimed driftwood. The posts are up off the ground on metal saddles set in concrete. Soon a large rose bush will be growing up over the top.

The entrance is made from all reclaimed and hand split red cedar. The entrance spans between the studio building and the existing hand split […]
