12×12 Timber Frame Plan

12x12 Timber Frame Shed

This 12×12 timber frame plan is extremely versatile because it can be used to build a porch, shed, or pergola over a hot tub.  It is a simple timber frame to cut and raise by hand. However, it will still offer you a challenge in some of the joinery details, making it a great DIY project.  Cover it with 1 1/2″ tongue and groove, and you are ready to put a roof on it.

The plans are formatted in PDF and available for instant download.  With a total of 23 pages on 8.5″x11″ pdf sheets, including 3d renderings, timber schedule, plan, elevation, and sectional drawings along with all the piece and joinery details you will need to build this small timber frame.

  1. Does this plan have an option to lower the pitch. Would like to use for home entrance but think the total height would interfere with second level windows.
    Thanks

  2. I’d like to build a 12×12 timber frame with an 8:12 pitch shed roof. What would be the best plan for me to use for that project?

  3. What is the total height? Also just to confirm 12 x 12 is measurement to outside corner of posts?

  4. Katrina Williams

    The total height is 16′-11 1/16″. And yes, the 12 foot measurements are from outside to outside of the posts.

  5. You could change the slope. Of course, removing the posts would not work unless the frame was supported by an adjacent roof.

  6. I’m planning on attaching it to my house. Is that possible to have slope changed in drawings I would pay extra if needed

  8. Hi, I have these plans, and I’m getting ready to buy the roofing material. I see that in many designs, when applying the gable end fascia, the fascia juts out from the rafter to create an overhang. In these 12×12 designs the gable end already juts out from the posts by two feet on both sides. Here’s my question. Can the gable end fascia be fastened directly to the rafters, or would you still recommend extending the fascia past the rafters some distance? Is this just a matter of preference? Do you need fascia with these designs?

  9. Is there a list of the timber dimensions. This is exactly what I’m planning on building. I’m planning on building with black oak 8×8 beams.
