Country ownerships have long ceased to be used for their intended purpose, namely for growing different crops in the summer. Currently, an increasing number of land owners are seeking to make the dacha a place of rest and relaxation, where, after working days with the city bustle peculiar to them, they will be able to come, stay in silence and just relax. For these purposes, comfortable gazebos are often built, since their construction does not require large financial investments and special construction skills.
At the same time, one of the common and budgetary materials used in the construction of this structure is the metal profile. In the article we will tell you how to make an arbor out of a shaped pipe with your own hands, we will show diagrams, drawings, photos and video instructions, as well as deal with a number of important features of component materials and installation features.
Profile specificity and advantages of arbors from it
Structure, made using the profile looks quite original. You can make such a construction in the shortest possible time. The main condition is experience in working with welding equipment.
The source material from which the arbor frame is made is a pipe, in most cases found with a rectangular or square section, made of carbon and low-alloy steel.
Raw materials are characterized by sufficient strength, multilateral resistance to harmful effects and practicality.
Profile pipe for gazebos
Profile pipes used as a gazebo endow the building with a number of positive characteristics . The main ones are:
Starting to make an arbor, you should decide in advance on the type of construction, make drawings, prepare the necessary tools and materials. In a huge variety of forms used arbor of shaped tubes can be of the following types: rectangular, square, hexagonal, etc.
In case of lack of experience in the construction of arbors, you should choose the classical options - square or rectangular, since they are simpler in planning and subsequent installation.
The next step is the selection of materials used. For the manufacture of practical and inexpensive gazebos will need to prepare the following consumables:
Drawing of the arbor
Having finished with the preceding paragraphs, we proceed to consider how to sketch. The plan can be made both independently and by seeking help from specialists. For greater clarity, you can use the attached drawing, adjusting it to the desired size.
It is necessary to pay special attention to the manufacture of a drawing, since the amount of material used, aesthetics and the duration of the gazebo depends on the accuracy of the calculations made.
Final event - preparation of the tool:
We proceed to the determination of the best location on the local area. In the case of a reservoir - it makes sense to place an arbor on the upper edge of the shore. The building should be on a well-viewed area, as it is an ornament to the whole landscape design.
Having finished with the choice of location, we proceed to the preparation of the site. To do this, in accordance with the plan, it will be necessary to remove the turf from the soil along its perimeter and apply marking lines. Next, we dig holes in the number of support pillars with a depth of 50-60 cm.
A profile with a length that takes into account the length of the pipe in the prepared pit is often used as racks. The optimal values of the cross section of the future support element vary from 80 * 80 mm with a wall thickness of 2.5-3 mm. To make it more stable, it will be useful to support the heels.
For the construction of the gazebo, it is best to use a pile or column type of foundation. Having finished with digging holes, we proceed to the installation of support columns and the tamping of the place of contact with the ground.To realize this goal, it is necessary to fill the hollows with crushed bricks or small stones, then pour the cement-sand mixture or concrete and level them on the construction level.
Metal strapping involves the manufacture of a metal frame that rests on supports and is subsequently the basis for the whole structure. It should be equipped and placed at the optimum height so that in the future a person at the entrance and exit does not have to do unnecessary steps to overcome this element of the gazebo.
Structural lining involves the use of polymeric materials. Sheets are fastened by means of screws or bolts to the truss system. Rafters are made of the similar shaped tube presented above. Based on the supports, the beams converge in the center of the structure at an angle of 10-15 °. Next, with the help of a thin metal profile, we carry out a crate with a pitch of 35-40 cm - this will significantly reduce the polycarbonate windage and will not allow sheets to bend too much, shaking the joints.
With no experience in the manufacture of the roof, the emphasis should be placed on the classic gable design with a triangular shape. If the length of rafters exceeds 150 cm, then additional struts and a central beam will be useful for them.
For the design of walls of the structure, geometric or bizarre shapes of metal rods will be suitable. You can use a wooden crate in combination with fresh flowers or grape vines, winding from the base to the roof. If you timely paint the wooden and metal elements of the gazebo, then it will serve you for many years.
Wood is usually coated with antiseptic and varnish, which can be applied both before the installation process and after. As for the metal elements, in this case it should be borne in mind that the surface treatment is carried out at the completion of all the work, since the colored components are difficult to weld with each other.
A beautifully decorated gazebo
In conclusion, I would like to note that the success of any construction lies in strict adherence to the instructions, the correctness of the drawing and the accuracy of the measurements made. A gazebo, made with the use of shaped pipes, will not only delight the host and his guests with its magnificent appearance for a long time, but will also become a place where you can relax, forgetting about the city bustle.
