I really like this plan. What is the minimum size for the posts?
Mike, The posts in the plans are 8×8’s.
do you have a 14′ wide by 16′ deep version of this plan? I want the roof peek opening at 14′ wide and the sloping roof on the 16′ deep side. looks like this plan is the opposite of what I want.
Also the 14 x 16 dimensions are the post locations not the overhang measurement correct?
How tall is the opening all the way around. Going to use this as a pool pavilion and need to walk into this structure from all sides
We currently do not have that plan available, we do have a 14wx18d deep plan that we can modify to meet your needs. The 14×16 is from outside of post to outside of post with a 2′ overhang all the way around. The height of the rafter tails in the plans is 8’6 and to the bottom of the tie beam is 7’6 but you can easily add some height by lengthening the posts. Let us know how we can help.
Do you have a plan for this using 6×6’s ?
No, due to the nature of the joinery and how much wood is taken out of the timbers it is not possible to make this frame as designed strong enough to use 6×6’s. We are working on a plan that uses the T-Rex Connectors that will be made from 6x material. However, some of the beams will need to still be larger that 6×6’s.
I am also interested in the 14 wide x 16 long plan modified. What would the cost of this be with the modifications ? I am looking to only have 4 main posts. What is the cost for your plan of 14w x 18d and would that plan sit on 4 main posts? What is the roof pitch? Can the roof pitch be modified if needed? Thanks for your time in advance.
The 14×18 plan is $67 and can be found at https://timberframehq.com/shop/14×18-king-post/ it has a 8/12 roof pitch and yes it can be modified for a small fee.
On the plans does it show all the dimensions for cutting the joinery detail ?
Yes each similar piece has been pulled out and given dimensions to simplify the layout and cutting of the joinery.
So just to clarify, on this 14×16 plan, the dimensions are to the outside of the main posts, not the roof overhang, correct ? So the roof-covered area would actually be larger ? And the 16′ dimension is along the ridge beam direction, correct ? Thank you.
Ross, the dimensions are 14×16 from outside of post to outside of post. However, it is the 14′ dimension along the ridge and 19′ across the gable end.
What is the height fro ground to peak of roof?
It is 14′-9 1/16″ to the top of the ridge; 15′-8 1/2″ to the peak of the rafters.
