DIY – How to Build a Ramada in Your Backyard

One of the best ways to add shade to a backyard

Pete Cure shows you how to build a Ramada in your backyard. Using a home in the Arizona Biltmore as his backdrop, Pete will walk you through some easy and relatively inexpensive projects you can tackle in a weekend.

This backyard of an Arizona Biltmore home has more negatives than positives. The space is narrow and the homeowner wants to give a more airy, open feeling. She also wants low maintenance and a shade area to relax.

One of the best ways to add shade to a backyard is with a Ramada. Pete walks you through the step-by-step of this DIY Ramada project. A quick trip to the hardware store for materials and tools, plus a phone call or two to some friends, will help get the job done.
