Take a look at this 12×16 shed roof timber frame design! With only two bents supporting the plates, this is a pretty simple frame to cut and raise. The overhangs are a generous two feet, adding extra protection from rain and sun. The upper plate is over 12 feet high – this creates a nice volume for whatever use you choose for this sweet structure!
You could leave the top and sides open for a backyard pergola, cover just the roof for an airy pavilion, or enclose the sides as well to create a workshop, gardening shed or writer’s retreat. The ceiling volume will make it feel larger than its dimensions.
The drawings include renderings, so you can visualize the completed frame. There is a timber schedule to make your lumber purchase easier. Then there are plan, elevation, and sectional drawings, along with all the piece and joinery details you will need to build this timber frame. The plan set is formatted in instantly-downloadable PDF for 8 ½” x 11’ paper so that it can be run off from any home printer or local copy shop.
