As yet unfortunately and despite spending quite a bit of time searching for gazebo plans I have so far been unable to find any gazebo plans that are available “free of charge”. What I have found though is some very nice low cost plans which you can see below.
There are several things to think about before starting to build a gazebo. You will need some basic carpentry tools such as a spirit level and a rechargeable screwdriver. You will also need a compound miter saw or sliding compound miter saw. These machines afford the angular cutting abilities you will need when fashioning the various sections of the gazebo.
The sliding version is best for larger pieces of wood.
You can either bolt the gazebo to a concrete slab or pre-existing wood floor, or you can create the gazebo with a built-in floor. In the latter case, you will need to pour one concrete pier for each post. Contact your local building department to find out how deep the concrete piers should be, and whether there are any underground cables you should try to avoid.
Three different kinds of woods are commonly used to build outdoor structures: pine, cedar, and redwood. Pine is the softest and easiest to work with, but it decomposes the fastest. Cedar and redwood are harder and more expensive, but age well.
For a wide of gazebo plans at unbeatable prices take a look at eBay:
