– Here’s a backyard story from Qualicum Beach, Vancouver Island.
We assembled a 12’ x 14’ pavilion on an octagonal concrete slab in August 2019.
To ensure the structural integrity of the mounting process I distributed the load across three rafter ties using a 1” x 8” plank and through bolts that came with the pavilion and steel angle iron as well as an additional L bracket on the centre vertical post.
It all looks like it was designed from the factory and it functions perfectly. We are very pleased with the project as a whole and we spend alot of time outside all year as a result.
