The Amish Pergola: A Solution to Increasing your Home’s Value

Posted by

The jury is in: Outdoor living spaces do add value to your home. Whether you are planning to sell your home or you are just hoping to extend the amount of time you spend outdoors, options like an Amish pergola are an amazing addition to any space.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, outdoor living has become more popular than ever before, meaning that now is the time to think about how you can better use your outdoor space.

If you are looking to upgrade your outdoor living space, there is an abundance of options for various spaces, aesthetics, and purposes.

Outdoor structures can be made from a variety of materials. However, pressure-treated materials are usually recommended over wood and vinyl because they can be purchased for less and can last much longer. They are also resistant to issues such as water damage, insects, and fungus.

Go with a Pergola

Although pools are fabulous outdoor hubs, there are plenty of additions that would upgrade that space. An Amish pergola is the perfect addition to add partial shade to any space.

There are two main options for how to add a pergola to your yard — have a local company custom build it or use a pergola kit to assemble it yourself. Do-it-yourself kits help cut the costs associated with growing your outdoor space. However, it also limits your creative ability with regard to both size and style.

Amish communities have been building pergolas for years and they are a fantastic option to consider for both of these building routes.

You can find an Amish pergola for an affordable price. And, they are built to withstand extreme weather year round, giving you peace of mind that the spaces you bring into your yard will last for many years.

Amish pergolas can be used as free-standing structures. They can support existing spaces such as adding one over an outdoor grill, for example, so it complements the space while adding an element of partial shade.

If you are looking for a more permanent structure, there are many other high-quality outdoor structure options that you can choose from.

Here are more custom-built structures

If you are searching for the ultimate outdoor space to wow guests and buyers alike, a custom-built poolside pavilion is your solution. Acting aesthetically as an extension of your home, poolside pavilions have an appeal and functionality that you need when creating the perfect outdoor space.

These structures can be custom built or purchased pre-constructed, depending on your space and budget. Options such as gazebos and poolside bars are also popular and can be customized to your design and space needs.

When custom building, you can detail your structures to include every feature you desire. Refrigerators, ice makers, storage, and bathrooms are common functional spaces to consider in many outdoor structures.

By including these functional aspects in your build, you are able to significantly increase the amount of living space at your home, while also increasing your home’s value. It also adds to the outdoor oasis you’re trying to create for your family to enjoy.

Let’s check the bottom line

Outdoor spaces increase the value of your home, making them a worthwhile investment for homeowners who may be looking to sell their homes.

There’s an endless variety of ways to create a beautiful yet functional outdoor space at your home, regardless of your space or budget limitations.

Designing an Amish Pavilion to Fit Your Lifestyle

Posted by

When you start out designing your own Amish pavilion, it can be an exciting but overwhelming process. With plenty of ideas for your new central piece of your backyard, it is very easy to get caught up in all the little details such as paint colors, window shapes, door styles, siding options, not to mention all the little accents you want to add to your design.

At Pleasant Run Structures, we want to work with you to build the perfect Amish pavilion that compliments your house and also your lifestyle. That is why it is so important to decide what type of pavilion is best suited for you.

Pavilions are an excellent way to elevate the status of your home so you need to first decide what you will use it for when you decide to invest in one. There are quite a few trendy ways to make your pavilion unique so we want to break them down for you. At Pleasant Run Structures, we want to build you a custom piece that is everything you dreamed about and is sure to make your neighbors envious.


A poolside pavilion not only enhances your backyard but it also can make a pool day much more enjoyable. Pleasant Run Structures can customize your pavilion to include all the essentials you need.

Instead of having to run back into the house and track wet footprints for a bathroom break, adding one to your Amish pavilion can be very convenient. Also, adding a changing room stacked with clean towels is perfect for guaranteeing privacy and another way to get in and out of your bathing suit without dripping water everywhere.

Open pavilions are the best way to have your outdoor living be out of the sun. Having a lounge chair area or a seating arrangement in the shade is ideal for having a little escape from the heat.

If you are someone who loves to throw pool parties, especially with kids, a poolside Amish pavilion will be a centerpiece for your fun in the sun.

A Second Home

In a way, you can think of your pavilion as a smaller version of your home. It can be another living space for the family and guests to meet, or your own little private paradise by making some additions so you have all the necessary amenities that you want..

Amish pavilions offer the space for a kitchen equipped with appliances including a refrigerator. It would be the perfect place to whip up something quick or have an area to make some snacks when you’re hanging out. Also, a refrigerator stocked with refreshments would be excellent for someone coming right out of the pool.

For more adult parties, a bar in your pavilion would be essential. It would be a focal point of the party where you can impress by mixing cocktails for your guests.

Some amenities that can also be added to your pavilion could be a ceiling fan, a large flat screen TV, a state-of-the-art surround sound and recessed lighting, making it a highlight of your home.

Entertaining Guests

If entertaining is your thing, an Amish pavilion can be the perfect outdoor space for a night your guests will not forget. Find the perfect dining or couch set so you can gather with friends and serve anything from drinks to cheese boards to full meals.

Also with a roof, your pavilion will protect you from any unexpected summer rain showers so you can continue your party.

Fire pits and fireplaces have been another trend in pavilions over the past few years. They are a great way to spend time outside on chillier nights. Just imagine relaxing underneath a pavilion on a couch outside with blankets and a fireplace and making s’mores — sounds heavenly.

Here at Pleasant Run Structures, we pride ourselves in the high quality of our pavilions. Where many other companies fall short, we have spent years developing our structures to look elegant while having the ability to withstand heavy snow and fierce winds.
