24×36 Sugar Shack Post and Beam Barn

Sugar Shack Barn

Sugar shacks have traditionally been found in Eastern Canada and Northern New England, where maple syrup is made by boiling down the sugar maple sap.  The distinctive cupola was actually functional to allow steam to escape.  Now you can create your own piece of history by cutting and raising this 24x36 post and beam sugar shack! You can use it for making your own maple syrup, or create a workshop, guest house or adorable tiny home!

The king post trusses and traditional joinery give this 24x36 sugar shack a lot of charm. There are pegged mortise and tenon joints along with scarf and spline joints. You can add windows or small doors to the cupola to add plenty of ventilation and light.

The dimensions from outside of the posts are 34’ - 1 ¾” x 22’ - 11 3/4”, which gives you 784 square feet under roof.  The overhangs are 1’-6”on the gable ends, 2’-6”on the rafter ends.

The 8:12 pitch roof starting out from over 12’ plates gives you plenty of ceiling height - the top of the cupola stands at 25’-0 7/16” a.f.f.!

  1. It can come in kit form as well. Head to timberframehq.com/kits to learn for and when you are ready fill out the brief questionnaire so we can learn enough to give you an estimate for the complete kit.

  2. While I love the style of the timber frame sugar house, just a thought – this specific design might be slightly awkward for actual sugaring. The middle posts on the second and third bents stand right where you would probably want to have your evaporator and smoke stack positioned to allow the steam to escape straight up through the cupola.

  3. Thank you for that observation. This is not really designed to be an operating sugar shack, but a fun pavilion with a nod to that history.

  4. How much would the complete kit be, with shipping to a farm at Fort Assiniboine, AB, please ?
    Or shipping to Edmonton ?
    And where would I get the old style windows & doors, please ?
    I deeply appreciate your help,
    Thank you,

    Our plans are designed at S4S planed/nominal sizes (Ex. 8×8’s are actually 7 1/2″ x 7 1/2″).  We designed this frame so people could go to a typical lumber yard and order the material, all of which would come nominally.  You can use the plan for both square rule or edge rule depending on your needs.
