I was thinking about building a gazebo for beside the pool. I was thinking about 14x18 or so which would leave enough room for dinning table and a small bar.
The question is, what type of wood would you use. I have worked a lot with pressure treated in the past, but when I get it, its always wet, heavy and tends to bow. I put in a shade sail last year using 6x6 post and they all bent a bit!
I plan on paint the entire structure. Do I have to use pressure treated for the roof and roof trusses? I can seem maybe the posts and facia board as they will get rained on, but the other would only be subject to humidity.
Just curious from others who might have built in the past.
