Blog Cabin 2013 at Sunrise

Viewers chose this pergola for DIY Network's Blog Cabin 2013, which is located along the Crystal Coast in North Carolina. The new arbor was constructed eight feet to the left of the property's original muscadine grape-covered arbor.

Pergola Master

Licensed contractor Matt Blashaw, building a pergola on his show Yard Crashers, also helped build the beautiful arbors at DIY Blog Cabin 2013.

"At the end of my two-day build, I took my work boots off and walked to the edge of the dock," says Matt. "The wind was gently blowing and the sun was setting, casting a beautiful red glow on the water. It was so quiet that I could hear every wave lap onto the shore. It is truly a magical place."


Jamie Durie put a new spin on stairs, by turning them into pergolas and adorning them with potted bonsai trees.
