14' gazebo, purchased the plan, I have the following question
1) Should I
a) cut first -> build it ->then paint, or
b) cut-> paint-> build?

select b), then the paint process will take much longer, and I may
have to repaint some of then later on if I have to recut to make the
2) I am thinking using treated wood for the gazebo post, but I am
worry about the poison the inject inside the wood, will it be a health
hazard if I stay in the gazebo for a long time?
3) If I using red wood as post, with 2 foot underground with
concrete, should I worry about the moisture and insect damage in long
4) if I using redwood, do I have to using heart redwood?

of. thanks in advance for any reply or suggestions.
