Forget a man-cave, this 20’x20′ post plan offers the ultimate retreat opportunity right in your own backyard. The king post area is 15′ wide by 20′ deep so you can spread out and work on your next project. The shed roof rounds out the building, creating a 5′ by 20′ space in which to organize and store your tools on a bench you build or roll in. Though the space may be for working, you will enjoy the high ceiling, featuring exposed timbers and creating a beautiful sense of space – pull out some chairs at the end of the day, put your feet up, and enjoy your vastly improved man-cave over a beer with friends.
Alternatively, enclose the king post area to create a small guest cabin – but be sure to leave the shed roof area open to accommodate your rockers for a peaceful outdoor space to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or the sunset at night.
