1. small building with view: a small, usually open-sided and slightly elevated building, situated in a spot that commands a pleasant view
2. sun canopy in garden: a lightweight freestanding open-sided canopy for use in a garden, usually as a sunshadeI saw this old-style large satellite dish turned into a gazebo when I was on a garden crawl in 2006. When I got home I told my husband we REALLY wanted to have one in our yard, and he posted a "want" on Freecycle. Within 2 days we had a dish that he took apart and stored in our shed. Of course it was two years before we actually got our gazebo built, but it's a wonderful addition to our garden. Every time I see a dish like this forlornly sitting unused on a roof or in someone's yard, I want to knock on their door and share the idea!
This blog documents the construction of our recycled satellite-dish gazebo, and will hopefully provide inspiration to a few more people!
