Hey guys,

I'm pretty handy with tools, and I usually fix everything myself. I'd like to build a pergola off the side of my house, and I'm not really sure how exactly I should start.

I have a general idea of what I want to do, but the most difficult part for me is figuring out the supplies that I need.

Realistically, I only thing I need THREE large posts... but I'm not sure what to get? I think I want cedar, right?

Are there any good sites or instructions on how to start? I'm not sure where I know to go to buy thick pieces of wood like that, or even where to order it, or... whatever? I'd like to see a few sites to get a good idea of what I hope to do.
