Best Yard Redo: Properly Aged Look

Who: David Trepp
Where: Newport News, Virginia

The hardest part was getting the foundation square during a few rainy days and then weatherproofing the structure before winter. I'll let the exposed pressure-treated wood age for about a year to develop cracks and checks before I apply some sort of finish.

Shown: The faux timber framing and exposed rafter tails made from stock materials.
