The Parapara is a beautiful handcrafted traditional cruck frame finished in natural oils with a canvas roof. 

The Parapara is a durable timber frame has been traditionally handcrafted with love. We source local Douglas Fir timber and use natural oils to protect our craftsmanship. The Parapara doesn’t use a single nail in its construction but is held together with traditional joints and hardwood pegs. 

This 34m2 freestanding pergola  sits on sturdy feet with a canvas roof that is waterproof, long lasting and well anchored to the ground, creating an ambient and a majestic space. Perfect for shading your wedding guests, or creating a glamping hideaway in your back garden.

The cruck frame is constructed using large beautifully formed curved timbers that take the weight of the frame. This type of frame lends itself to large open internal spaces which is why it makes such a gorgeous exposed beam external space.

Frame your stunning view or host your next event in this impressive cruck frame pergola.

Handcrafted in New Zealand.
