Pergola size? (10x30ft)
I have room for a pergola roughly 10'x30'.
Does anyone have an idea of how I should span the joists, and how far apart the beams should be? I was thinking a beam every 10feet (8 beams total) and then 3 10" joists to span the 30ft. Does that make any sense? If so, can anyone point me to any online pergola plan that I can adjust to do this correctly?
I'd also like to cover it (at least a portion) so that I can use our hot tub in the rain. It rains too often in the NW!
thanks for any help! I'm new but I'd like to learn how to build this, also put down pavers stone for the patio below it, etc.
