This 18×24 timber frame pavilion is the perfect size to create a carport, a small guest house, or a deluxe workshop. With 432 square feet under the roof, other uses for this king post design would be for an outdoor kitchen/dining pavilion or a cabin-in-the-woods. The top of the plates are over nine feet high, and at a 6 in 12 pitch, the ridge stands at well over 14 feet tall for a lofty ceiling height. And you can tailor the look of the pavilion to suit your tastes with roof pitch variations from 3 in 12 to 12 in 12. Take your pick!
The pavilion boasts generous two-foot overhangs in a two-bay design. The gable ends utilize two different post layouts for flexibility- place the entry door where it suits you. The sturdy 8x construction makes for a structure that you can be proud of, and that will stand the test of time.,
