I have seen it done, but what is the trick?

Question Re: Outdoor kitchen in Texas

Pergola questions:
What is the recommended spacing and size of field pieces? (12" apart, and 2x8, 2x6?) I am thinking 2x8, 12" on center.
What spacing for the final top of the pergola? I am planning to use 2x2 perpendicular to the 2x8 and thinking 6" apart.
I know it is a function of the span and amount of shade desired. I am mainly concerned with what works aesthetically? What looks good?
Planning on Red cedar.
Thanks
Tracy

Post Re: Outdoor kitchen in Texas

To answer my ?: There is no standard for spacing, just preference. The normal is 16" on center for the joists in sizes starting at 2x6 and up. The top and final layer is normally either 2x2 or 2x4 or lattice. Red Cedar or Redwood. That comes from a couple of lumber yards that i have talked with and the prefab pergolas.

I am thinking 2x8x18' for my "joists" resting on a 4x6x12' that sets on 6x6 that set on top of my brick pillars surrounding the courtyard. 16" on center for the 2x8 and 6" on the 2x2.
