DH built beautiful arbor

Dallas, OR

My DH just finished this beautiful arbor at the top of the RV pad to add privacy to our backyard. We will be painting it white.

Nice job. It will look even better painted and a nice vine climbing over the fence. The painting will be a challenge on the lattice work.
Question, How thick is the wood used for the door ?
Is that a fig tree on the left ?

Thanks, Dwight. We just bought a bronze leafed clematis 'Freda' to grow over it. Can't wait. Must do the painting first-not looking forward to it.... but the reward is in reach...

The door is built with cedar 1X6 boards-framed on back with 2x4s. I will attach a photo of the back of it.

Yes, that is a fig tree-'Brown Turkey' I think is the cultivar. Supposed to develop ripened fruit best in Pacific NW climate. I have it potted in a large pot and sitting on the RV pad which is concrete. It has fruit but no where near ripened. First year with it so don't know if the fruit will ripen or when.

I have a Brown Turkey, given to me last fall, about 2' tall.
I planted it out this spring, it's about 3' now and we have eaten a few figs from it.
The skin tasted like leather but the flesh inside is nice, maybe next year I'll be able to make some jam.

Good to know you got some ripe figs. I am in zone 6-7. I should find a place to plant it in the ground. I am putting to gether a veggie garden space in our yard right now. Maybe will put it there.
