Just $700 in materials and a way with welding created this modernist pergola with universal charm. It caught our eye and the last few rays of afternoon sun.
Full disclosure: this is no ordinary DIY. Creator is Stephen Mohring, a Carleton College art professor and sculptor. Wife Josie Rawson is a master gardener.
Labor isn't the only savings here. We had a similarly sized wooden pergola estimated at $5000 last summer.
Anyone know a good welder?
