16×24 Timber Frame Plan

16x24 Plan

This versatile plan could be finished out as a storage shed, a picnic pavilion or even a glamping cabin.  It measures 16’ wide by 24’ deep, with two generous bays. Enclose the entire structure, or enjoy part of it as a delightful porch. The plate height of 9’10” creates a roomy interior. Generous gable-end overhangs make a strong statement.

The drawings include 33 sheets, including renderings, timber schedule, plan, elevation and sectional drawings along with all the piece and joinery details you will need to build this small timber frame. Formatted in instantly-downloadable PDF  for 8 ½” x 11’ paper.  We also include a post and beam conversion plan.

While the plan has an 8″ roof pitch by default,  we have added the dimensions for 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12-inch roof pitches to allow you the option to choose in this set of plans.

    1. We agree they are big, we tend to oversize them timbers to take into account where this frame is built, some locations have quite a bit of snow loads and the timber size reflect that. Depending on where you live you may be able to reduce the sizes, contact us directly at [email protected]. To be honest, it is easier to find timbers than you think, check out our article at https://timberframehq.com/wood-procurement-timber-frame-diy/ for more information.

      1. Bruce,

        I live in California and will never need to worry about snow loads , however I love the Big Timber look. Would 8x8s work for the main frame considering no roof load? Also , the engineer I spoke to said it would cost me 1500.00 for engineered plans which seems like a lot for a patio cover , are your plans engineered??

        Thanks for your time and love the look of your drawings.


      1. I live in Europe (Netherlands) to, did you succeed with the conversion in AutoCAD? If you did, i’am interested in the metric version. I bought this plan 2 years ago and i just got my building permit so i can start building in a few months.

  1. I like this design, but was looking to make it either 16×30 or 16×32 with a loft. Is it just a matter of adding an additional bay?

  2. Can this be butted against a house on one side? I see you can double to get 16W*48L. I would like to enclose 16W*24L for a 3-season room, is this possible? Also would like an 8″ step down from the room to pavilion.
    In Ohio, snow belt some heavy wet snows in early season what is the load? If posts are on 8′ center and span 16′.

  3. I live in Calif. I have some property that has a lot of grey or digger pine left on it after the fire. Most of the Pine, Df, and Cedar are now gone or severely compromised. Grey pine has a tendency of twisting. I just purchased a mill. Im planning on building this plan first with the remaining standing grey pine. I figure that the grey pine should work ok for the larger uprights. Any background with this type of lumber?

    1. I do not have any experience with Grey Pine but I am sure it will work. I would recommend calling some timber framers or sawyers in your area and talk to them. There are ways to take the twist out after it occurs when laying out timbers with snap lines. Sounds like the characteristics of yellow pine. Sorry for my delayed response.

  4. Beice,

    I’m thinking of doing a modified design that will allow most of the construction to be done by one person. My thought is to have a completed truss and post frame assembled and raise it into place. Then do the next and so on. After all frames are set and braced, I would then add the timbers between the frames and then the roof framing on top of that in between the main structural frames. Do you have any designs like this? I can send you a sketch, if you send me an email address to send it to.

  5. Hi Brice

    Do you provide a sliding scale for wood sizes based on strength and stress grades? I’m interested in building from different Australian hardwoods that grow locally.

    Kind Regards


  6. I would like to build this frame using your Post and Beam Fastener Kit. Does the Kit include instructions on the modifications that have to be made to the plans to accommodate the fasteners?

  7. 1) How long can this be extended without having to add another bent? 28′, 30′ 32′?

    2) I just purchased this plan. I will want to have it modified to make it longer and to add a loft in the rear bay. How do I get this done?

    Thank you.

  8. Do you have any documentation on enclosing the frame? Adding doors an windows etc? Or do you simply clad the structure in 8’x4′ insulated panels?

    1. We simply supply drawings for the frame itself. It is up to you to decide how you would like to finish it… there are many options!

  9. Would it be a problem if the scarf joint was not centred above the post? Having it off centre would avoid combing the mortice/tenon with the scarf joint.

    1. Katrina Williams

      That size could be done with a hip roof, but we currently don’t offer that as a stock plan. You may want to check out our custom design services here
