This lovely 18x12 timber frame pavilion plan is a perfect size to fit in practically any landscape, yet large enough for so many purposes. You could create a dining pavilion, great workshop or sweet backyard retreat. We actually give you two plans when you purchase this 18x12 timber frame pavilion! We include a full plan set designed as a standalone structure, and a second one planned as a porch to be attached to an exterior wall of your home. You will love showing off your skills with the gently curved braces and embellished rafter ends.
This structure measures 18 feet x 12 feet from outside to outside of the posts. It is a single bay design that creates a totally clear floor space. There are generous 2 foot overhangs. The top of the top plate stands at +9’-3” high,and the top of the rafters are +17’-7” high. The roof pitch is 8 in 12. This frame utilizes 2218 board feet including 8x8, 8x10, 6x8, and 6x10 timbers
As soon as you make your purchase, you will receive links to download the pdfs of the plan sets. They are formatted to print best on 11”x17” paper, but you can print a set from home on letter size paper for study purposes. Both plan sets include 10 pages full of all the information you need for success: 3D drawings, post and rafter plans, section drawings, and detail drawings of the more complex areas of the frame. Both piece drawings sets include 17 pages showing you every cut you will make on each timber. And the pieces are labeled to match the 3D drawings on the plan sets, so you know exactly where each one fits in the frame.
