Ever host a party or a barbeque in the backyard and wish you could just have a nice shady spot to sit and relax? Or hanging out by the pool and just wish you could get out of the sun for a few minutes? Well, one thing that a lot of people don’t know is that Delta Millwork manufactures Cabanas and Pergolas made from beautiful Western Red Cedar timbers and sells them as ready-to-assemble kits. I have one in my own home (pictured below) and I can honestly say that it is the single best thing you can add to a swimming pool or backyard oasis. And the best part is you will actually use it, a lot…

We offer Cabanas in sizes ranging from 15’ x 15’ up to 20’ x 20’. Custom sizes can also be made. The Cabanas feature a beautiful open 2x6 tongue and groove Cedar ceiling that can also be accented with low voltage indirect lighting as well as solid cedar timber structural beams that are bolted together for long lasting beauty. The kits include all of the Cedar, hardware, bolts and brackets to build the complete cabana except for the roof shingles and the concrete slab or decking. While we do not install the cabanas, they are easily erected by any competent framer or carpenter. Most of the parts are even precut. How cool is that?
