Would you like to create a truly spectacular space with a nod to history? This 16x24 cruck timber frame may be just what you need! Crucks, often used in medieval times as tithe barns, get their name from the long curved timbers that extend from the ground to the ridge. We have altered the design to fashion the curved cruck out of two timbers instead of the long single blade. This makes your job easier, and the timbers easier to find. A graceful, embellished hammer beam joins and supports the halves of the crucks.
The footprint of this frame measures 16’ x 24’ from outside to outside of the posts. The two bay design includes 2 foot rafter overhangs and 1’-4’ gable overhangs. You will have a soaring ceiling in your finished space! The height to the top of rafters at ridge is 18’ - 7 ⅝”, starting from a height at the top of plates of 10’-0”. Show off your skills with plenty of traditional joinery and embellished rafter tails and hammer beam ends.
This graceful 16x24 cruck timber frame boasts graceful curves in the crucks and tie beam, and a 12:12 roof pitch. The plan utilizes 3363 board feet of timber.
