New Project a Pergola for the south side of the house

There is a light shower today hence the cloudy day in the photos, still lovely here in Baja Mexico by the Sea Of Cortez.

After a little thought I decided that I needed to have some shade on the south side of the house and the wall that faces the west and hottest side in the summer. I contracted for a Pergola that covers most of the walkway and shades the west wall too.

These photos are the preliminary work needed to get the structure into place. It seems like a bigger project than I envisioned, but it will do the job of keeping things cooler during our very hot and humid summers.
