Best HEIGHT for pergola???
We are going to have a freestanding pergola built off of the kitchen side of the house (south side of house). Currently, we're thinking of something in the 16' x 16' wide size, but how TALL should it be? I was thinking that if the top cross beams were at about 11' tall, then when covered in vines, which would hang down some underneath, it would be about 10' when standing under it. What do you all think of that height? TOO tall? The fella who's going to build it for us was thinking something lower, more intimate, would be better but I sure had it in my mind as taller....
Opinions welcome! and thanks.
