24×36 Hammer Truss Heavy Timber Plan

This 24x36 hammer beam pavilion takes its style from English Gothic architecture. Originally developed in medieval England, hammer beam trusses allow for a large roof span with smaller timbers - and creates a frame of great character! The rhythm of the four hammer trusses creates a fantastic style - and the chamfered through tenons on the hammer beams add even more interest to this beautiful frame.

In order to accommodate 6” wall framing and furring strips, this frame measures 22’-11 ¾” x 34’-11 ¾” to outside of the posts, which allows the frame and wall system to fit on a 24x36 foundation. There is a lot of drama with the ceiling height! The top of the upper plates stand at 11’-4 ¾”,and the top of rafters are 22’-10 ⅝” high! The roof pitch is 12:12. The total board feet required for this frame is 5,730.3

You will receive links to instantly download the three pdf files when you purchase this plan. There are 9 pages full of information in the construction drawing set. We provide 3D drawings so you can picture the completed frame. There are exploded 3Ds so you can see how the timbers interact. And we include post and rafter plans, and transverse and longitudinal sections. The 24 page piece drawing set contains drawings of every timber in the frame, with each cut completely dimensioned. We have labeled the timbers corresponding to the 3D drawings, so you know exactly where they fit into the frame. Then there is a timber and connector list, so you know exactly the materials to purchase to get started on this project.

  1. Hi Bryce,

    Which one of the two hammer beam frames would be easier to convert to 24 x 20 with a 10 12 pitch roof, the 24×24 or the 16×24 ?

    Thanks Kevin Fanjoy

  2. Can you get these plans with roof pitch reduced to 9/12 slope? What is the longest members and the size of those members?

  3. That would be a custom design -Check out our page, HERE, describing what we offer and the process of our custom design services. The longest timber is 16′-3 1/4″ and they are 6×8

  4. Looking for a cut list on this, rough +-10% .
    To estimate my material cost and wood sizes before I purchase the plan to build.
