Am thinking of putting one up in the garden (small one).

Anyone with suggestions, thoughts, experience on this (where to buy, best type of wood, DIY or professionals, etc.)

The nearest i can think of is the one at the back of Subang Parade facing Carrefour they have everything on gardening..If you want to go further try the nurseries along the road towards Sungei Buloh, maybe cheaper and more varieties.

Carrefour and Ikea have promotions on these every now and again ..small unit, self fix types. Think the former has one on offer now. Sg. Buloh has a big vareity to choose from. DIY is also good idea if you have the time and some standard tools..recommend stainless steel bolts and nuts and hardwood.
Good Luck ;)

I did see the offer at Carrefour but am worried whether at that price (I think less than RM100/-) if the wood used is of appropriate materials to withstand the heat and the rain.

Whatever you decide to do... remember this... the cheaper the wood, the faster the rot ! :p If it is not hardwood ie.. Resak or Cengal forget putting it in the sun/rain exposed enviroment... :eek: it will go faster than you can say PERGOLA! :p

By the way, how big is your set-up/cover and what is your budget like? Friend staying in USJ3/3# does it on parttime basis.... pretty decent works too... lemme know if you interested.
