    I like the overall look and design of this frame but I need a little more length. Would it be possible to make the frame 24 feet deep so the main area is 15×24 with out an additional bent or sizing up the timbers too much?

      Thanks for your questions. That would be fairly simple change you can make in the field. You will just need to increase the length of the purlins, ridge and other timbers running that direction by 24″ in both bays.

    I’d like this for a sugar shack. I would like to raise the roof by 4′?, leaving the sills at 7 or 8′ and install a floor in front, remove the ridge at the back for the cupola. Is this a simple revision or does it require some head scratching and redrafting?

      I think those changes are easy enough not to require any redrafting of it. If you have any questions along the way drop up a line and we will do our best to help out.
