20×16 Connext Pavilion Plan

This 20×16 Connext pavilion is a perfect medium size for a multitude of uses!  The proportions make it a great addition to your home, whether you create a porch, master bedroom, or living space. As a freestanding pavilion, this 320 square foot structure would serve well as a kitchen/dining space or guest cabin.

You don’t need to worry about cutting complex joinery with this plan –  it is put together utilizing T-Rex connecros for a simplified job. Yet you still get the benefit of heavy timber construction, as most of the timbers used are 8xs. The roof construction is rafters and traditional purlins- just add roofing of your choice to make a sweet enclosure!

The 8:12 roof pitch creates a spacious feeling, with the ridge standing at almost 17 feet high. And there is no center post, so you can feely utilize all of the  space between the columns. Metal angle braces at the corners stiffen the whole construction and add a nice design detail to this 20×16 T-Rex pavilion .

The 14-page plan set is formatted to be printed on 11×17 paper. It is an  instantly-downloadable pdf file, and you can have it printed at your neighborhood copy shop. The drawings include 3-D renderings so you can visualize the finished product. There are also  elevations and sections of each part of the frame, and individual dimensioned piece drawings showing the cuts for the metal connectors. The detailed timber and fastener lists will make it easy to budget and purchase your materials.

  1. Simple question here, this is the exact size of structure I am thinking of building. I would attach it to my home and screen it to make the perfect screened porch. Pitch is perfect, beams perfect, etc, exactly what I am thinking about. The question, can I use 3×6 T&G roof decking to make a finished roof without issues. I’m 75 and believe I can do it.

    Yes, you can use 3x material, but you can put a roof right on top of a 2x material. It will be a little easier/cost-effective.

  3. Glad you found the site, Rebecca! No there is not a plan currently but we can make you one on a custom basis. Is that something that would interest you?


    Yes, we are going to be building a home and in the design phase right now. My husband wants to build 40×40 or 30×40 depending on the cost difference. 40×40 would be ideal as we have a 35′ 5th wheel that is about 14’high, a 2500HD, 3500HD, and an SUV that also need to go under it. We think a carport will be more cost effective for everything than a garage for the vehicles and a carport for just the RV. Thoughts?

    Love the plans. just curious is the 20×16 plan measuring post to post with a 2 foot over hang? want to make sure it will come close to covering my 26 x 20 patio.

  6. Can I adjust this to 18×14 easily?

    I have this area already constructed. OR…. do I just adjust these plans and purchase the ones available?
