16×24 Hammer Beam Pavilion

16x24 Hammer Beam Plan Left Front

Take a look at this gorgeous 16×24 hammer beam pavilion! Two bays create a beautiful repetition in the sculptural trusses of this structure. Though a bit more complex to cut and raise than a frame with common trusses, the result is beautiful. You will want to create this frame for a special space, such as a great room addition to your home or a free-standing carport. With a steep 12-in-12 pitch to the roof, the ridge soars to 16 feet tall!

Enclose this frame as you wish – with 385 square feet, this timber frame would make a great camping cabin, a generous picnic pavilion, or even a cozy and dramatic backyard guest house. The possibilities are endless for the ways to enjoy this artistic frame!

The drawings consist of 35 pages of renderings, including X-ray drawings, so you can fully understand the joinery. There are timber and fastener schedules to make your materials purchasing easy. We also include plan, elevation, and sectional drawings, along with all the piece and joinery details you will need to build this timber frame. The plan set is formatted in instantly-downloadable PDF for 8 ½” x 11’ paper, easily printed from home.

  1. Hi, do your plans include drawings to complete the roof such as purlins and common rafters. Please elaborate. Thank you

  2. Yes, each similar piece is drawn out giving you all the dimensions you need to cut the frame. In this case, it is a purlin based roof system.

  3. It seems the typical hammer beam has a 12/12 roof, how much does the geometry change if it is reduced to an 8/12 roof? Still remaining 24′ wide.

  4. I think you would take too much wood out of the timbers as designed with the mortise and tenon joints. Think you would need to use metal connectors to make it work. We can make those adjustments and get an engineer to take a look at it.

  5. The plans we offer on our website have all been reviewed by an engineer. People build our frames all over the country, and in each location, there are different requirements.  Timber species, design loads, and values needed are just some of the factors engineers need to take into account in each case. 

    We do offer engineering services as an add-on to our standard plans. We can offer these services in all states except Illinois and Hawaii. We can also serve the Canadian Provinces of AB, BC, ON, SK, AND YT. If this is something you are interested in, head over to https://timberframehq.com/custom-design/project-information-form/ and fill out the brief questionnaire. 

  6. Can this be built as a 16’x24′ with three bays, adding one bent and also increasing the overall peak height from 16′ to 24′?

  7. 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. 

    Fill out the design questionnaire so we can understand your needs. That’s the best way to communicate with our team and get an estimate for design services.

  8. Can the 16X24 Hammer Beam Pavilion be stretched to a 60ft length? Cost of plans? Is a kit available?

  9. You could definitely make this frame 16×60. Please go here and fill out the questionnaire to get an estimate for custom design services. And yo can go to our kit page and fill out that questionnaire to get in touch with our team and get pricing on a kit with the joinery pre-cut.
