When thinking of outdoor structures a beautiful and classic structure comes to mind, the gazebo. A gazebo is a pavilion structure, sometimes octagonal. They can be either freestanding or attached to another structure such as a deck or a wall. They are roofed yet open on all sides.
The origins of the gazebo go back over several millennium. Gazebos have been in the literature of China, Persia and many other classic civilizations. George Washington had a small eight-sided gazebo at Mount Vernon. Thomas Jefferson wrote about gazebos and called them summerhouses or pavilions. Today this classic structure is as popular as ever.
