Build your own bridge from scratch from one of the dozens of plans available for $40
or build it to a custom-designed plan. Contact me for rates.

Build your own bridge

My plans are compact, with all parts dimensioned on one drawing for the best overview.

Should you prefer metric measurements, I have a few on hand or can draw you a custom plan.

Here's an exploded view of how things fit together.
General instructions start here.
There are 3 somewhat different shapes of arch components but they all fit together the same way.

If you're not in a rush, you might find some history on this bridge design interesting or some thoughts on footings or wood durability. For any questions, special requirements or modifications to your plan, drop me a line and I'll be happy to try and help.
