12×16 Shed Roof Timber Frame Plan

12x16 Shed Roof FrontTake 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 chose 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.

    I’m interested in applying this design as a camping shelter in NE Washington. In addition to the plan itself offered here, what other books/instruction might a motivated beginning timberframer need to complete this project? I’m specifically wondering about tying the frame to a foundation in an area that will see frozen ground with temps in the single digits in winter.
