8×12 Shed Plan

f-6This 8 foot wide by 12 foot deep king post plan is available with a 12/12 roof pitch, and has generous two foot overhangs. The petite 96 square foot frame will easily fit into just about any back yard. Use it as a tool shed or potting shed, or add a window or two and create a fun playhouse for the kids!  This 8×12 timber frame is constructed with sturdy 8×8 posts, and has king posts and graceful, slightly curved knee braces.

Constructed with only two bents, the small size of this design makes it a great beginner’s project. The smaller timbers are relatively easy to move around the shop. With only four posts and three plates, this will be a comparatively inexpensive project, as well.   This diminutive structure will also be pretty easy to raise – recruit your friends and family and make raising day a fun and memorable event!

The drawings include an instantly downloadable PDF download, with individual piece drawings.  There is also a full timber list, to make your lumber procurement easier.  The renderings include x-ray vision drawings, so you can really get a feel for the joinery. The pages are formatted at 8 ½” x 11”, for easy printing from home.
