TIP: In some applications, you may use screws instead of nails for better holding power.

TIP: If box frame is in contact with the ground, you may want to consider using ground contact-approved 2x6s.

TIP: Use water repellent or stain with water repellent when your job is finished to help protect your pressure treated wood from splitting, checking, and warping.

NOTE: Gazebo may have to be secured. Check local building codes.

NOTE: The moisture content of pressure treated wood products can vary. If the moisture content of the treated wood is high, deck boards should be butted together because spaces will occur between the boards as they lose moisture content in service. If the wood has been kiln dried after treatment or otherwise has low moisture content, a 1/8" spacing is recommended.
