"Walo" is a Visayan word which means eight. This octagonal gazebo is unlike any other octagonal structure out there. Why? Because this is the only octagonal shape gazebo that only has seven posts to support it. This unique characteristic is made possible because of the ingenious method to which the beam was structured. The result was a two seemingly floating roof.
By taking away one post, the entrance becomes wider compared to the typical octagonal shape gazebo. The backrests are inclined to a comfortable recline. The dining table is also octagon in shape. There's also an option to add two stools on the front extending the capacity to nine.

Does it still stable despite having only seven posts?
Not at all! It doesn't compromise the rigidity and structural integrity of the model.
Does your kit come with assembly manual?
Yes. We want the entire assembly process to be less labor intensive as possible for our customers. That is why we provide them with not just a print but also a video demonstrating the entire assembly process.
Do the structures requires some footing?
No. All of our standard models are designed to be free-standing. Although, depending on the area where it should be erected, fastening it to the ground is needed as an added precaution to avoid being toppled down by strong winds.
What exactly is the roofing material used?
The roof is made out of natural palm leaves from the Nipa Frutacan, which is why these structures are commonly known as Nipa Huts because it's basically a hut which has a Nipa thatch making its roof.
Its longevity depends on the climate to which it is constantly exposed to. Nipa thatch likes being wet than constantly basking under extreme heat. The average lifespan on Nipa thatch is around 4 to 6 years.
