Gazebos are a great place to comfortably enjoy some much needed shade in the garden. Their iconic geometric shape also adds elegance to otherwise bare spaces. They may look complicated to build on your own, but home improvement expert Bill McAnnally encourages the DIY'er fans of home improvement day that the process is manageable. During this hour of Talk of Iowa, he talks with host Charity Nebbe.
McAnnally recommends cedar wood and patience for the building process.
“There’s a lot of pride to it,” McAnnally said. “There’s nothing better than looking up to the rafters [of the gazebo] and not be able to even slide a piece of paper between.”
