Pergola | Part 1

We took our first steps this weekend building the pergola. 
We needed some deep holes.. and the Mister was just the right man for the task. 

We went about 3 feet down, set a concrete base, 
then placed about 4 inches of gravel down there for drainage.  
Which is very necessary in that very soggy part of our yard. 

We managed to set 3 out of 4 of our posts. 
Unfortunately the 4th post in the corner of our house will need to be mounted to a concrete base.
While digging we hit some solid concrete...not quite foundation, but more like extra random concrete.
Not too big of a deal, but just one more thing to figure out. 
We have definitely learned that projects are always a problem to solve!
