Introducing the ultimate outdoor oasis: the Big Kahuna Timber Frame Pergola Kit. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail and built to stand the test of time, this magnificent structure will transform your backyard into a luxurious retreat.

Featuring 6×6 posts with a classically cut “tenon” at the top, our pergola boasts a unique and sophisticated design that will make a statement in any outdoor space. The tenon creates a secure beam connection that will ensure the stability of your pergola for years to come.

The 6×6 single beams are expertly crafted with a precise “mortise” cut, allowing for a seamless connection to the posts. This intelligent design ensures a sturdy foundation for your pergola, guaranteeing that it will withstand the elements and provide a secure structure for your outdoor enjoyment.

For the utmost stability and durability, our Big Kahuna Timber Frame Pergola includes 4×6 notched rafters on approximately 24″ centers, and 4×6 angles. These angles are designed to provide additional support, ensuring that your pergola stands strong against wind, rain, and any other weather conditions. The finishing touch are 2×4 top slats spaced on approximately 12” centers, giving your pergola a sleek and modern look.

To choose your perfect pergola style, first determine your ideal dimensions based on the desired location of your pergola.

For more detailed information about your pergola’s dimensions, view our Dimensions Chart. Note that the dimensions for the Big Kahuna Timber Frame Pergola Kits are the same as our standard Big Kahuna Pergola dimensions shown on the chart.

You can choose from a range of rafter and beam lengths. Your rafter and beam lengths will be reflected in your size choice – for example, a 12×14 pergola kit will have 12 foot rafters and 14 foot beams. Inner and Outer post-to-post dimensions will also be affected by your choice in size.
Especially with larger sizes or timber frame pergola kits in #1 pressure treated southern yellow pine, installation will require that you or your pergola installer perform additional tasks not normally required for our standard pergola designs, including raising heavy timbers. Ensure that you have adequate tools, equipment, and people to assist with the installation.

Standard size pergola kits ship from our facility in Florida generally within approximately 3-5 weeks from the day we receive cleared payment. This varies based on season, shipping location, and the size kit. Once your order leaves our production facility in Florida, delivery times are typically between 2 days and 12 days from the date of shipment, depending upon your location. Please contact us for current shipping timeframes.

We custom build a pallet that goes under each kit, stack the pergola pieces on the pallet, then strap the pieces down and build crating around the outside to protect the lumber. The kit will come on the back of a semi truck and you will need to hand unload it piece by piece. For most shipments, the driver is not required to help unload it, but some will assist. The whole process takes about 30-40 minutes depending on the size kit you’ve ordered. Just make sure there are 2-3 healthy adults present to unload the lumber for a standard size kit.

You’ll also need a tool to cut the strapping from the crate (scissors or knife) and possibly a screw gun with a Phillips bit to uncrate the lumber. Every kit is crated a little differently due to the different sizes of pergola kits available. Not all crates will need to have screws removed but those that do will usually have 4-6 screws to take out in order to remove the pergola pieces from the crate.
