This sweet 10×10 King Post Timber Frame Pavilion will fit into any outdoor space. With smaller timbers (the posts are 6×6’s), this makes a great beginner project, and it is light and easy to raise.
This can accommodate a conversation grouping, outdoor dining, or hot tub area. Its small footprint will fit easily into most backyards. You can add shingles or roofing of your choice for more shelter from sun and rain, or leave the purlins exposed for an arbor effect.
The traditional mortise and tenon joinery add an artistic element to this frame. Check out our timber frame kits to purchase your pegs and fasteners with just one click!
You can leave this frame open-sided to enjoy the outdoors or enclose it with the material of your choice to create a garden shed or workshop. Or you could add clear panels to create a sweet greenhouse! The 12-in-12 roof pitch creates a nice ceiling height, and the generous two-foot overhangs give plenty of protection from the elements.
The PDF plans contain 26 pages full of drawings, 3d renderings, timber, and fastener lists. We also show each timber with every cut and joint fully dimensioned. This makes cutting the frame easy, accurate, and fast. The plans are formatted to letter-size paper, easily printed from your home, and ready for instant download.

Hello , on the 10 x 10 timber frame King post truss plans will it have full scale drawings of the knee brace with the tenon?
Daniel the plans have scaled piece drawings of all timbers including the knee braces.
Can this be made to 14’ wide and 12’ Long
Can this be made to 14’ wide and 12’ Deep
Will you provide me with the timbers necessary (dimension, length, and quantity) to build this project?
James, we just provide the plans but we can help you find the timbers, where do you live?
Are the timbers true 6 x 6 or 5 & 3/4?
5.5×5.5 everything is a 1/2″ under just like a 2×4.
Hi, can i get a parts list on this for a cost estimate if you can.
Could you make this really small? I’m looking for something like this for a garden arbor- 4’ x 4’?
Would that be something you could easy adjust for- this will be my first solo timber frame. I took a week long workshop and am eager to do my own!
I would like to make this in 10×12. Can I still use 6×6 timber?
Yes, should not be a problem.
Can the height of the structure be increased without increasing timber sizes? If so by how much?
The easiest way is to increase the length of the post. While this will increase the length of the timbers it will be minimal.
What is the overall height of this pavilion?
It stands 14′-7″ to the roof peak.
