16×32 Timber Frame Pavilion

16x32 Arched Chord Pavilion Aerial View

This 16×32 timber frame pavilion is a project for an experienced timber framer. The cross gable and curved timbers create a dynamic, elegant structure, although they certainly add to the challenge of cutting this frame. Originally designed as a boathouse, you could use this pavilion as a generous outdoor living space or even a small guest house.  We include detailed piece drawings in the plans for each timber with compound joinery.

Please note that the outside of post to outside of post dimensions are 16′ x 32’ 3 3/4″.

When you purchase this plan, you receive four instantly-downloadable PDF files:

The first plan is the 18-page set with the plan, section, and elevation drawings, plus detail piece drawings for each of the timbers with compound joinery. The second set is seven sheets with the plan, section, and elevations formatted to 24″x36″, for printing at your local copy shop. The third set is the 11 sheets of piece drawings, formatted to 8 1/2″ x 11″ so you can print from home and study them.

We also include a PDF file with the timber list, so you can easily budget this project and procure your timbers.

If you are an experienced framer ready to show off your skills, this 16×32 timber frame pavilion may be just the plan for you!

  1. Would it be possible for you to expand the 16’x24’ to 16’x30’?

    I would like to purchase a set of plans in that size.

    Rob, we don’t currently have this plan in a 16×24, but can modify it for you on a custom basis. Please check out our Custom Design services here.

  3. I’d love to make a slightly simplified version of this plan at around half this size (8 or 10’x 16’). Keeping the kingpost beams along the length (removing the hammer beams from the ends) and making a simpler hammer beam (but perhaps keeping the central arch) for the middle area.

    I could see it as making a handsome little storage outbuilding/play house perhaps with a stone paved fire pit area in front.

    Perhaps I’ll succeed but I’ll reach out if I need help!

    Thanks for the awesome plans/ideas
