Take a look at this his 14×14 post and beam outbuilding! Its footprint would easily fit into most backyards. Its generous plate height of over 9 feet creates a comfortable ceiling height. Ample overhangs provide extra protection from the elements. This design is great for many uses: a freestanding workshop, gardener’s shed or dining pavilion. You could even add it to your home to create a relaxing porch. The interior space is 196 square feet, but the ceiling volume makes it feel bigger than that.
You can customize the design as you like with the included roof pitch variation drawings, running from 3:12 all the way to 12:12. The design uses engineered connectors instead of traditional mortise and tenon joinery. That greatly simplifies cutting and joining the frame. We even offer a connector kit packaged specifically for this design so you don’t have to search for parts you need!
The drawing set includes plan views, elevations, section drawings and individual piece drawings. We include 3d renderings, with x-ray views to show you all the details and connectors to help you visualize and cut the frame. There is a full timber list, with the quantity and dimensions listed, to make your timber purchase painless. We provide a detailed fastener schedule, so there is no guesswork involved. Or purchase a fastener kit tailored just for this plan!
The drawings are formatted in PDF for instant download. They are sized at 8 ½” x 11”, for easy printing at home.
