  1. My wife and I are wanting to pick a rustic and ornate timberframe design to be use for a large car port , attached patio pavilion ,and two
    attached porches to tie all together.

    Can you do plans for various sizes with 6/12 roofs ?

  2. Hi I’m looking for a 12 x 18 King post timber frame plan this one is pretty much exactly what I’m looking for
    Are your measurements post to post or does the 12 x 16 include the overhang , I would like a minimum of 18 inch overhang all around
    I’m looking to use 8” posts but I would also like to curve the Bottom side of the girt Slightly
    Thx
    Jim

      Jim,
      We currently don’t have a 12×18 plan available. I do think that it is an easy plan for you to modify to meet your needs. Along the way feel free to ask us any questions.
