Your garden space should be a retreat for relaxation and enjoyment, away from the sun, while still allowing you to enjoy the beautiful views of your yard. When you have pets, it’s essential to give them a backyard area they can enjoy, away from the heat of the day, while offering them plenty of open air.

One way to transform your garden and backyard entertainment area is to add a timber frame pavilion. It’s a great backyard addition that you as a homeowner, as well as any of your sitters for your pets, can enjoy. Learn what a timber frame pavilion is as well as the benefits that come from owning one.

What Is A Timber Frame Pavilion?

Have you ever been to a park or outdoor event center and sat under a covered canopy area with a picnic table and chairs? If so, then you’ve utilized a timber frame pavilion before. By definition, these are structures that are decorative in appeal, and designed to provide outdoor shelter for various purposes.

Pavilions with a timber frame construction are quite common in parks and other recreational facilities, providing shade and privacy for those who want to use these areas as stages or to dine and entertain friends and family.

Timber frame pavilions can add beauty and versatility to your yard. There are many ways you can incorporate this type of backyard design into your yard, which you’ll soon discover.

Benefits Of Timber Frame Pavilions For Homeowners And Sitters

As mentioned above, there are several benefits to having timber frame pavilions placed in your yard. Here are just a few of them.

Breaking Up Empty Space

Do you have a very large yard? If so, adding a timber frame pavilion can be a terrific way to break up this space and add dimension to your yard. Your timber frame pavilion specialist will help you design the right style and size of pavilion for your garden space based on several factors. These include your budget, the size of your yard, how you intend to use your pavilion, and the style of decorative pavilion you want.

Providing Ample Shade And Shelter For Pets And Sitters

Do you have pets that spend frequent amounts of time outside? If so, providing shelter for your pets in your open or fenced-in yard is key to their safety and comfort. Your pets can take refuge in the shelter, which provides shade and protection from the elements, while still being able to take full advantage of your yard.

This makes a timber pavilion an excellent option for pets who don’t like to be placed in a kennel or other small, confined space while still wanting to be sheltered from the heat or weather.

For pet and house sitters, a pavilion is a welcome retreat. While attending to the exercise and entertainment of your pet, sitters can relax under the pavilion. They can also use the pavilion when they come to check on your home while you are away for periods of time, and you can have peace of mind knowing that both your pets and your caretakers are enjoying your outdoor structure.

Providing Unique Entertainment Space

A pavilion is kind of like a deck, only it’s usually separate from the house and placed somewhere on the property where it has plenty of room to be used for a variety of purposes. Timber frame pavilions can be the perfect addition to any home where entertaining is very important.

If you want to use your pavilion for entertainment purposes, ask your builder about having built-in seating installed, or a gate to place around the pavilion to make it easier to keep track of children and pets inside or outside the pavilion. A pavilion can be customized in a variety of ways to make it ideal for entertainment purposes, and can even have a built-in fire pit or other fun feature to give it an extra ambiance and make it far more fun.

Adding Potential Home Value

The best part about adding a timber frame pavilion to your property is that you can not only enjoy the luxury of having a private pavilion of your own for relaxation and fun, but you can also add value to your home. Depending on where you live and current real estate trends, adding a pavilion to your property can improve your home’s value by a noticeable percentage.

The key lies in making sure the pavilion you have installed is done so professionally and is placed in an area of your yard where it can have the most views while also being in a relatively private space. A timber frame pavilion is most attractive because it combines natural and rustic elements to a property so it blends seamlessly with other backyard features.

Having Your Timber Frame Pavilion Installed

Before you have your timber frame pavilion installed, decide where you want the structure to go. Your builder can assist you in this endeavor. Then, you can clear the area for the pavilion installation specialist to get to work.

Once the timber frame pavilion is completed, you can add finishing touches, including indoor-outdoor furnishings and flooring, plants, and other essential comforts. This way, your new timber frame pavilion is truly custom to your needs. Enjoy your new timber frame pavilion!
