How a

Building a Bamboo Arbour

There is so much beauty to be had from bamboo. With a bamboo construction kit Also, building a bamboo gazebo is quite easy. This particular kit we unfortunately no longer have in our range. Nevertheless, it is very nice to see how it is built. The kit consists of 19 parts including 4 prefabricated bamboo corner posts and 4 waterproof roof sections made from dried palm leaves and bamboo. All parts are numbered and equipped with matching bolts and nuts. Building this bamboo gazebo takes about 2 hours with 3-4 people.

Supplies

  • 4 bamboo corner posts of 60 x 60 x 240 cm
  • 2 straw roof panels 460 x 230 cm (waterproof and draining)
  • 2 straw roof panels 390 x 230 cm (waterproof and draining)
  • 2 bamboo beams Ø 11-12 x 300 cm
  • 2 bamboo beams Ø 11-12 x 370 cm
  • 4 loose straw roof corner parts of 325 x 45 cm
  • 2 straw roofs on stick 150 x 70 cm
  • 1 half-round bamboo pole Ø 8-10 x 150 cm
  • 2 Ladders
  • 2 Spanners size 13/14

Step 1.

Place the corner posts 3 and 4 metres apart (outside dimensions) to form a rectangle. Make sure the side with the protruding bolts is facing upwards.

Place the first bamboo crossbar on the corner posts. Each piece is numbered, so make sure the numbers on the crossbar correspond to the numbers on the corner posts. Next, push the bolts that are in the corner posts through the holes in the sleeper. Tighten the nuts but do not fully secure yet.

Now that the entire frame of the bamboo arbor is in place, you can tighten the nuts one by one. Note that fixed is fixed!

Bear in mind that the bolts in the crossbars are positioned in such a way that all the hooks are on the outside (top) and the nuts on the bottom are on the inside.

Step 2.

Take one of the two widest roof sections and lay it over one of the long crossbars.

The roof section contains two protruding bolts which must rest on the hooks of the bamboo crossbeam. Do not fully fasten the hooks yet and support the roof ridge so that the next roof section can be installed.

Now place the other long roof section on the opposite side in the same way as indicated.

Once the underside has been hooked into the hooks of the crossbeam, you can then secure the ridge with bolts. Here too, the holes have already been pre-drilled.

Step 3.

Place one of the two smaller roof sections between the longer roof sections. Again, secure the roof section with the corners on the cross-bar.

The tip of the smaller roof section falls precisely into the ridge of the two longer roof sections and is automatically clamped in place. It is not necessary to secure it with additional bolts.

Now place the other triangle-shaped roof section on the opposite side in the same way as indicated in the previous steps.

Step 4.

To make the thatched roof of the arbor waterproof, attach the supplied strips to the corners of the roof. This can be done using steel wire or screws.

Finally, place the two pieces of straw roofing on the ridge of the roof and attach them using the half-round bamboo pole supplied to finish the ridge of the roof.

If necessary, you can trim the overhanging straw in the corners of the roof slightly so that everything has the same length.


Enjoy the end result, your luxurious bamboo gazebo is ready!
