This 12×16 three bent timber frame shed has two doors and the roof pitch is 12/12. One door is a large door on the gable end. It is 6′ wide. The second door is on the side eave wall for people to access the inside of the shed.
The additional pictures shown are of the shed made by a customer of mine. He finished off this shed with vertical board siding, asphalt roof shingles, windows on the eave wall and the back gable end, a window over the large gable end external sliding door as well as added some sky lights between the rafters for natural light for the loft area. This plan set does not include the lean-to addition on the side of the shed.
The plan set shows all the timbers you’ll need to use if you wish to do boards for the first floor deck and roof. Or you can use 2″ plans for the first floor deck and roof, either way these plans can be used for both sizes of decking. The plan set is printed on 8 1/2″ x 11″ standard letter size paper, non bound. You can copy a page to take out to your workshop and use to make notes, keeping the original for future reference.
Where each timber is shown on a page, it is shown with all four sides and both ends so that you can see all the locations of all the joints and housings. All necessary dimensions have been shown for each joint.
- The plan set includes a stock list of the actual sizes of each timber and the number of timbers of that size.
- It also includes a list for ordering your timbers, in standard stock sizes, from the mill or lumber yards.
- These timbers are 8×8’s and the rafters are 4×6. The girts are 4×4 and the floor joists are 4×6 as well.
- There are bent and wall views with dimensions.
- 3d views of the frame to help with visualization.
