      Looks like you have a great "canvas" to work with!!!

      I dont think you'll have any foundation issues since you're Tx. Us "northerners" have worry about frost heave and freeze/thaw stuff.

      One thing to keep in mind is the placement of your oven chimney in relation to your house. It should go at least 2 feet higher within any structure within 10 feet...

      Keeps us posted.

        Wife is after me to build a pergola...really like yours. Is your top totally enclosed like a solid roof? Or are the slats open? Hard to tell from the picture.

        And welcome! Craig

          The post are 8" x 8" very heavy!!!
          The others are 10" the 8" in the middle & top is the 2" x 2"'s.
          It is 16' x 16' x 10' tall (so post are 19' footers!!!) & 3' in the ground sucker is NOT ever going anywhere.
          The ends I had many designs I drew & ended up with these pretty simple design, just took a while to cut each & everyone out, I made myself two templet's for each size's of the 10" & 8" boards to keep it uniform. Overall it was very easy to build once the 8" post are set up & inthe ground. Here in Texas the ground is VERY hard.

              Thanks for the details and the additional picture. The time you spent cutting the ends was worth it...it's beautiful!
