Are you looking for a two-bay garage, guest house or spacious workshop? Check out this 20×24 heavy timber outbuilding plan! With plates over nine feet high, and with a 6 in 12 pitch the ridge stands at well over 13 feet for a volume ceiling. However, we include roof pitch drawings from 3 in 12 all the way to 12 in 12, so you can choose the volume you like!
The king post trusses and the knee braces are all enhanced with a graceful curve. The spline joinery in the beams and the scarf joints in the plates make this a challenging project you will be proud of. This building is super strong thanks to the heavy timbers used in the posts and trusses.
Depending on the roof pitch you choose, there is enough headroom to add a floor over part of the space for a crawl in sleeping loft or storage. Of course, you may also omit the loft and enjoy the volume the high ceilings add to the space.
The drawings consist of 32 sheets, in instant-download PDF format. They include all the piece and joinery details you will need to build this frame. The drawings also include renderings, plan, elevations, and sections. We include a timber list and fastener schedule to expedite finding and purchasing your materials. There are also 3D drawings so you can visualize the project. The plan set is formatted in 8 ½” x 11” for easy printing at home or your local copy shop.
