King Post Truss Plans

Timber Frame King Post Truss Plans

Don’t want your entire home to be timber framed, but want to accentuate it with some beautiful trusses? Take a look at these king post truss plans, available in several different sizes and roof pitches. The King Post is one of the simplest trusses – it consists of two diagonal members called struts, one horizontal beam that serves to tie the bottom end of the two rafters together, and the vertical king post which connects the peak to the horizontal beam below.

Ready for instant download, the package of 11 pages contains PDF drawings, materials lists and renderings, making this a fantastic project for any DIY craftsman who wants to learn about timber frame construction techniques from the ground up. The trusses can rest on conventional framed walls or be incorporated with timbered post.

The width of the plan is measured from outside edge of rafter to outside edge of rafter.
