This is our ramada. It was made using rough-sawn or resawn lumber, and as I\'m not a big fan of shade structures that look like stacked kindling wood I did all of the joinery using \'half-lap\' joints in the wood which eliminated the need for fasteners like screws or nails since each of the joists between the posts locks into a half-lap four times. This also reduces the twisting that is often experienced when one has nailed and stacked lumber exposed to the elements.

The west side of the ramada has Wisteria sinensis \
