Do you have a smallish outdoor space that you want to adorn with a shade shelter? Look at this petite 10×10 King Post–Post and Beam Plan! This structure is small enough to fit in any backyard and still accommodate your conversation grouping, outdoor dining, or hot tub area. You can decide to leave the purlins exposed for an arbor effect or add shingles or roofing of your choice for more shelter from sun and rain.
With smaller and lighter 6-inch posts, this design would be easy to cut and raise and make a great beginner project. Furthermore, hidden metal connectors instead of traditional hand-cut joinery allow you to get the look of a timber frame without all the head-scratching. Check out our connector kits to purchase your fasteners with one click!
What a nice place to relax! The 8-in-12 roof pitch creates a nice ceiling height, and the generous two-foot overhangs give extra protection from the elements. You could enjoy this structure open-sided or enclose it with the material of your choice to create a she-shed or workshop. Or you could add clear panels to create the greenhouse of your dreams!
The PDF plans contain 22 pages full of drawings, 3d renderings, timber, and fastener lists. Finally, we also show each timber with dimensioned cut plans. This gives you everything you need to cut the frame fast and accurately. The plans are formatted to letter-size paper, easily printed from your home, and ready for instant download.
