If there is already a summer version, it can be modified in winter and summer. Of course, you can build a winter version from the very beginning, even though it is a costly pleasure. However, moments spent with loved ones, especially in the cold season, become more comfortable and warm - they are priceless.

There are several types of arbors:

  • Solitary buildings, which are separate buildings, in fact, it is an independent building, equipped with everything necessary for a pleasant pastime, even in adverse meteorological conditions will allow you to spend time in nature.
  • The combined form is characterized by the fact that it is not an independent building, but is considered to be part of a single whole with a house, sauna, bath.Its peculiarity is also the fact that it includes both summer and winter pavilions - the Moorish style. It has several zones: the first is for rest, and a canopy with shelves can be located along the perimeter, although there are other options.

It all depends on the financing and design taste of the consumer., you can also keep in mind the English style - this is a classic, it has a clear sustained characteristics. As a rule, it is a multifaceted roof, and in the center a heating system is installed, it can be a fireplace or a brazier, or just a heater. A certain zest can be added by adding your ideas to the structure.

During construction, it must be borne in mind that getting to the gazebo will have in the winter, it can be somewhat problematic, so you should arrange it closer to the house in order to avoid obstacles in the form of snowdrifts.

It is desirable that the structure is combined with the overall design of the site.

If the building is insulated, it can be used all year round: in summer, opening windows or removing them altogether, and in winter, heating a fireplace or making a shish kebab on the brazier, you can simply install a heater.It is also worth taking care of the heating system, do not forget about good ventilation.

When building warmed gazebos from a person, specialized knowledge, skills and experience are not needed, they can be built without any special problems, and you can also add your own design elements.

It should be borne in mind that the insulated gazebo has its own principles of construction:

  • is a closed building that needs less heating;
  • the presence of a heating device;
  • the room should be equipped not only with a door, but also with windows - to ensure good air circulation;
  • there is protection from adverse weather conditions;
  • heat resistant and moisture resistant materials should be used;
  • conduct specialized processing of these materials;
  • when choosing and laying the foundation, you should also consider the load, from the future decoration, the size of the gazebo and its internal structure.

Heating options

Winter arbor can be heated in several ways.


The use of such kind of heating in the gazebo is usually limited to cooking kebabs, since the heat generated by the fire is not enough to provide large space with heat.However, if you take care of a good warming of the room, then this option is acceptable.


One of the most practical, but also expensive, options is the equipment of a separate structure with a furnace. She is not only able to maintain the required temperature in the room, but also allows you to cook something tasty for your guests and loved ones - this is a choice of practical owners.


To provide not only warmth, but also the decoration inside will help such a decorative element as a fireplace. You can purchase a finished model or try to build with your own hands, although this requires a certain return and skills. Or simplify your life by ordering an electric model.


This option is, of course, less bright decor element, as previously listed, however, this device will help in a short time to ensure an adequate level of heat in the room. One of the most preferable is an infrared heater, its rays are safe and their characteristic is that they do not heat the air in the room, but the object to which they are directed. Each consumer, at his discretion and financial possibilities, chooses a more acceptable way to heat the gazebo.

Materials for construction

One of the most popular materials is wood. It is processed with specialized liquids that comply with fire safety and antiseptic standards. This is especially important if the room is heated by a stove, barbecue or fireplace. In addition to the use of liquids, you must remember to respect the distance to the heating element - to the nearest object must be at least a quarter of a meter. Install the heating element on a metal plate.

A weighty plus is the fact that when choosing this kind of material, the foundation does not present any particular difficulties. In addition, the design can be assembled in such a way that it is possible to move it around the site.

More refined, but also more expensive material, is a brick. It is convenient because the criteria for fire safety are softer, however, a more complex foundation is already needed.

A cheaper equivalent, that is, an alternative to brick, is the construction of gas blocks - this is really a functional material that creates a lighter structure. It can be installed on a simplified version of the foundation.Moreover, this option does not require significant financial costs.

Style, shape and decor

On their own taste, the consumer, analyzing the appearance of the house and the landscape, can choose a particular style for the construction of an arbor. However, if family members cannot move to one particular option, you can stop at the classic English style. It implies a fireplace in the center of the building and is minimalist.

If the solution is towards more interesting ideas, then we can consider the Moorish style. The arbor made in such style will look more interesting. You can also divide the building into certain zones.

There is a Chinese style, it resembles a pagoda and is often made of fine wood, therefore, the implementation of an arbor in this style can entail a large financial burden.

Introvers, or just people who are tired of the surrounding fuss, may like the Japanese style. This option implies isolation from the outside world; here even glass is made in stained glass. In such arbors reigns an atmosphere of privacy.

The spatial imagination of the consumer can play a crucial role in choosing the shape of the structure.These can be polyhedra, which is an interesting and functional option for a gazebo, which looks like a large room with a lot of obtuse angles inside - it is convenient to arrange elements of decor or places for recreation.

However, it can be ordinary, simpler in reproduction and execution of rectangular structures. They are more common just because they are easy to do on their own from the material preferred by the consumer. In this form, both summer and winter warm options are often performed, represented by a large room or a smaller one, but retaining the comfort and simplicity, which also acquires a peculiar charm.

Speaking of comfort, the key aspect is decorating the room. It is by introducing a peculiar highlight from himself that a person makes the room comfortable for him, which distinguishes this structure from all others, albeit outwardly and having some kind of common style or form. Decorating can use completely different, sometimes even defiant elements, but more often it is an unusual wall covering, some beautiful decorations and / or original representatives of the flora, which, in addition to beauty, also enrich the room with oxygen.

The separate moment is warming of an arbor for the winter period. In addition to wall insulation, often, to preserve heat, the ceiling and the floor are also treated. Also, to save heat, it is recommended to glaze windows, however, it is not recommended to use double-glazed windows, since this is irrational and will only cause damage to the consumer’s wallet.

It is necessary to take into account this fact that in the summer under suitable climatic conditions it is necessary to carry out minimal repairs - everything must be in good condition.

To protect the gazebo from meteorological conditions, for example, such as wind or rainy weather, moisture resistant material:

  • polycarbonate;
  • lining;
  • plastic.

In terms of thermal insulation, polycarbonate can be compared with plastic, it is well resistant to temperature fluctuations, and also perfectly protects from rain. The wall paneling can be used for plating on both sides of the room; it is good as a heat insulation material, as well as as a decoration and masking of wall defects.

For protection against low temperatures should use sheet insulation:

  • felt;
  • mineral wool;
  • foam rubber;
  • for elimination of cracks - construction foam.

Felt is a natural material, which is good, however, it can “fly into a pretty penny”. Its cheap counterpart is foam plastic, which will save heat, has a small weight, and, therefore, a small load on the foundation. The floor can be insulated with mineral wool - this material is environmentally friendly.

To protect against rain often use a protective film - it is durable and durable material resistant to external factors, which will also help preserve the appearance for many years.
