This graceful 12×24 Gothic arch pavilion would make a fantastic addition to your backyard landscape. The sharply angled struts create the gothic style of this generously-sized frame. With 288 square feet, you could enjoy it as an alfresco dining pavilion, glamping cottage, or any number of other uses.
The 12-in-12 roof pitch puts the ridge of this 12×24 Gothic arch pavilion at 16 feet, creating a spacious feeling. The joinery in this frame is beautiful, including the through-tenon on the king post-to-collar tie connections. You will be proud to show off your joinery skills when raising this frame!
The smaller 6×6 and 6×8 lumber will easily move around your shop. And since this pavilion comprises only two bays, cutting and raising will be quickly accomplished.

What are the finished height dimensions for this 12X24 Gothic Arch Pavilion? We have an 11 foot tall X 8 foot wide trailer we’d like to house but can’t find the height measurements listed anywhere on this page. What is the pass through height and width?
Hi Eric, yes if you maximized the posts, the clearance would be just above 11’.
I live in belgium. Is this plan also available in the metric system?
I would like to make a pavilion of 10 meters by 3.5 meters. Can I do this with the same plan or does it need to be adjusted?
Tim, our plans are in Imperial measurements; not metric. There are several websites that calculate the conversions.
I’d like to order these exact plans but with three bays instead of two. Is that something I could possibly have done?
We do take on custom projects and would like to talk to you further about yours. Check out our page, HERE, describing what we offer and the process of our custom design services. Scroll to the bottom of the page and fill out the design questionnaire so we can understand your needs.
Could this still hold up shingle roofing? Would you still need to add rafters to this to add shingles? Or would this call for a metal roof of some kind?
Our plans are designed to accept metal or shingle roofing.
