How to Build a Bamboo Gazebo
Building a bamboo gazebo is easy with our Bali gazebo kit (*unfortunately not available anymore). The kit consists of 19 parts including 4 prefabricated bamboo corner posts and 4 waterproof roof panels made of dried palm leaves and bamboo. All parts are numbered and fitted with the matching nuts and bolts. Building this bamboo gazebo takes about 2 hours with 3-4 people.
Place the corner posts 3 and 4 meters apart (outer size) to create a rectangle. Make sure that the side that holds the bolts is facing upwards.
Place the first bamboo crossbeam on top of the corner posts. Each part is numbered, so make sure that the numbers on the crossbeam match the numbers on the corner posts. Push the bolts of the corner posts through the holes in the crossbeam. Do not tighten the nuts completly until the entire base of the gazebo is assembled.
Repeat step 2 for all the other crossbeams.
Now that the entire frame of the bamboo gazebo is put together, you can tighten the nuts one by one. Make sure that all bolts in the crossbeams are positioned in such a way that the hooks are on the outside top, and all the nuts on the inside bottom of the beam.
Take one of the two largest roof panels and lay it over one of the long crossbeams.
The roof panel contains two bolts that should rest on the hooks of the bamboo crossbeam. Do not completly tighten the hooks yet. Support the ridge of the roof so that the next roof section can be placed.
Now place the other long roof panel on the opposite side in the same way as described in step 5.
Once the bottom part of the roof panel is secured to the hooks of the crossbeam, you can then secure the two bamboo poles in the ridge with bolts. The holes are already pre-drilled.
Place one of the two smaller roof sections between the larger roof sections. Again, secure the roof panel by using the hooks that are attached to the crossbeam.
The tip of the smaller roof panel falls exactly in the ridge of the two larger roof panels and will automatically clamp. It is not necessary to secure the roof panel with extra bolts.
Place the other triangular roof panel on the opposite side in the same way as described in the previous steps.
To waterproof the thatched roof of the gazebo, secure the supplied thatched strips over the corners of the roof. This can be done by means of steel wire or screws.
Finally, place the two supplied pieces of straw roof onto the ridge of the roof and fix it with the supplied half round bamboo pole that finishes the ridge of the roof.
Optionally you can trim the overhanging straw in the corners of the roof so that everything has the same length.
